Want To Elevate Your Child To Higher Levels Of Reading?

Is your child experiencing anxiety and frustration in school due to reading difficulties? Would you like your child to have reading instruction that meets their individual needs? You’re not alone! Using direct, explicit instruction and working together as a team to help your child, let’s watch them light up with success and confidence in reading!


Over the course of her 30+ years of teaching experience, Marcia has helped hundreds of students learn to read. As a NYS certified reading intervention specialist and certified Reading Simplified™ practitioner, Marcia uses several research-based, science of reading methods to accelerate your child’s reading progress. Often, children approach or reach grade level reading in about 12 one-hour sessions! 

Marcia provides a detailed, diagnostic assessment of your child’s current reading ability. Then, using movement, games, effective strategies, and lots of positive support, she tailors her instruction based on your child’s most pressing needs. Students gain confidence, build reading stamina, and learn to enjoy reading!
