Multiple assessments implemented to determine strengths and weaknesses in reading, writing, and spelling. We are prescriptive and diagnostic, which means each child is individually assessed.

1 on 1 Orton-Gillingham Tutoring

1 on 1 tutoring for struggling readers. We do not follow a prepackaged curriculum. The Orton-Gillingham Approach focuses on the structure and use of sounds, syllables, words, and sentences.  Lessons are crafted based on the specific skills and concepts that the child struggles with as identified by entrance assessments. We use research-based methods to remediate errors, develop fluency, and teach spelling accuracy and reading comprehension.

Handwriting Instruction

A multi-sensory approach to teach pencil grip, letter formation, and the literacy skills that are needed for print and cursive handwriting.

Specialized Tutoring

We also offer reading, writing, math and homework support. Individual and group options available


We schedule an intake appointment to meet and determine if the Learning Alliance Academy is the right fit for your child’s needs.  We discuss concerns, review prior academic testing, and talk about goals for tutoring.  Then we will schedule a time to complete assessments for placement.
