A Chat with Solomon The Reading Tutor
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am Orton-Gillingham trained, I have worked in education for 20 years, and I am fully capable of improving your child’s skills and abilities. I can give you your child’s reading level and assess them on their overall reading abilities. I can help children with dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, and more.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I provide a reading assessment first. After your child has been tested, I will give your family a reading plan for success. We will work on phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. I can also work on writing and other necessary academic skills.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I love working with children and watching them grow. It is my true belief that all students can learn and I enjoy watching them thrive. It is fascinating for me to figure out what it takes to motivate children to learn. Once I have figured out how children learn, they take off!
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing the thrill in a child’s eye when the light bulb has been turned on. My 3-year-old is reading and my 1-year-old is learning his alphabet. Let me work wonders with your precious one!
