Bay Area multi-sensory Tutor for Reading, Writing, Comprehension and Dyslexia

Approximately 20% of children (10 million students) in United States public schools have learning profiles that are not aligned with the expectations and teaching methodologies prevalent in mainstream school systems. These students are referred to as having learning differences or learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, ADHD or attention issues, and dysgraphia. As a result of not fitting in the system, they are often perceived as incapable of performing well in school, unmotivated or too challenged to keep up with their peers. These students often disengage with school, perform poorly and may not graduate from high school. The Reading Clinic works with a wide spectrum of learners, from struggling to uniquely challenged, and takes care to fit their approach to meet each students’ needs. The Reading Clinic uses and adapts research based multi-sensory programs to help children enjoy the learning process.

Since 1997, The Reading Clinic has been helping students become more successful in school through one-to-one tutoring in reading, comprehension, spelling, writing, verbal expression, language comprehension, and math. Using research-based, multisensory programs, The Reading Clinic delivers high quality and targeted interventions for struggling students. As an academic remediation and learning center, we focus on enhanced academic performance and self-esteem. We provide students with a safe and accepting environment, engaging them in an ongoing process of discovery. In our dialogue-based format, students are better able to follow directions, stay on task, take more risks, complete assignments, and feel good about themselves.

The Reading Clinic identifies a student’s basic needs and creates a tailored solution. The results are measurable, significant and most importantly, last a lifetime. We have 4 locations in the Bay Area, including San Francisco.
