I started Successful Learning because I am passionate about providing services to individuals in the dyslexia and related learning-challenged community. There is a great need for services that bring about real change, and we endeavor to provide those services.
I am currently able to continue tutoring a few students which enables me to connect in real-time with our tutors and student needs. I can continue to survey the needs of students from their early school experiences to their working needs as employed individuals.
I love seeing the positive impact tutoring brings to the student and their parents, the confidence that is built, and the hope that is born for their future!
