Lexia Learners provides effective remote/online One on One personalized tutoring services in reading, spelling and foundational math to our students using a platform called zoom. It is virtually the same as being in-person, except online students practice their typing skills rather handwriting skills.
What We Do Online We teach 30 or 50 minutes sessions, at least two times per week using multi-sensory, Orton-Gillingham based systems. Students will work on:
Developing self esteem
Teaching techniques that lock in information
Teaching multi-sensory spelling
Continually testing comprehension
Sight word tricks
and much more.

Considerations Before Scheduling an Intake Session Believe it or not, ADD/ADHD students often perform better remotely! We do not recommend tutoring for everyone. Remote tutoring can be successful for many students, but not all. We can determine this during our remote intake appointment. Online tutoring should take place in a distraction-free, quiet area of your home. Please make sure that other siblings, pets, etc. are in another location during the tutoring session. We encourage all students to use of headphones, whenever possible. :) Remote tutoring somet challenges to work with, from time to time. Be prepared that sometimes sessions have to be reschedule or cut short. In the event of computer problems, we will make every effort to reschedule the lost time. If remote tutoring isn’t a good fit for your family, we will refund any unused portion of your tuition paid, the first month, that’s our guarantee.
