“I see myself as a raiser of spirits who makes reading and spelling a little easier for those brilliant folks trying to fit into the round holes of society. I tend to believe that because there are more “round holes,” they dominated the world and created the reading and spelling thing. The brilliant minds who do not fit into the round holes created everything else.”— Kristi Davis


I tutor clients online 2-4 times a week with the Barton Reading & Spelling System, an Orton-Gillingham approach. I am Certified at the Masters Level by Susan Barton, the creator of The Barton Reading & Spelling System.

  •  My clients struggle with reading and spelling

  •  They may or may not have been diagnosed with dyslexia

  •  They range from early elementary school to senior adults

  •  They range in severity of dyslexia from mild to profound

On average, depending on the severity of dyslexia and how often we meet, clients work with me about three years. A minimum of two (50 minutes) sessions a week are required, but I encourage three. Ultimately, three sessions each week costs less because of three things: 
     1.  I offer a discount on the third session
     2. There is less time spent reviewing
     3. We complete the program faster

If you or your child struggles with reading and spelling, I encourage you to review Susan Barton’s list of Warning Signs. Then visit her Bright Solutions website and take advantage of what she shares.

You can tutor your child yourself or hire a professional. If you choose the latter, it would be my honor to assist you and/or your child on this journey.
