Let’s succeed together
At Literacy Expanded, we focus on the whole child's strengths. All of our tutoring is anchored in the Science of Reading, Structured Literacy, and the Orton-Gillingham Approach.
How it works
If you are looking for your child to grow in confidence and literacy, this is the place to be.
When you work with us, your child will meet with their Orton-Gillingham tutor virtually, in a dedicated time slot, twice a week. This is important for scheduling and success.
Every session is interactive and multi-sensory. We individualize each lesson so that your child will have the supports they need to feel confident in and out of the classroom.
We know that most progress is made when your child has a connection with their tutor.
Reach out and we will find the best match for your child.
