ABOUT THE OWNER/HEAD TUTOR


After being a classroom teacher for 15 years, Dana decided to start this tutoring company, Actually Learn It.


We are committed to helping students make sense of what they are reading. We want to relieve parents' frustrations as to why their children can't read and see their children succeed. One of the best feelings of being a teacher is seeing a child have that" lightbulb moment."



WHAT WE TUTOR AND HOW

We mostly tutor READING to 2nd to 8th graders via Zoom in a one-to-one, safe, and focused learning environment. (We may tutor in-person for an additional fee at a public library.)



During the consultation, the student will be given an oral fluency assessment

(pending parent approval). This will be followed by a conversation with the parent about the student's needs.


Next, most clients will be given a diagnostic assessment including a phonics screener and library assessment (measures comprehension).


Most sessions consist of a 60-minute session with direct instruction followed by extra practice.
