Dyslexia Tutoring

 

All of our teachers receive expert training and have access to expert resources. No other dyslexia learning center in the Des Moines metro invests in dyslexia training and certification for their tutors like we do.

 

Aspire Academy uses the Wilson Reading System as its Orton-Gillingham method. All of our tutors are trained by the Wilson Academy at their three-day, in-person, 18-hour course, and all tutors then have access to the Wilson Academy web site for training videos and additional support. Reading is a life skill, parents are investing money and time...choose the best.

 

In addition, Heidi Kroner, Executive Director, has completed her Wilson Level 1 Certification, and she is working to complete her Level 2 Certification. She is one of only 12 people in the state with this certification level. Heidi keeps current with continuing education to stay up-to-date on the best methods to help kids with dyslexia.

 

We tutor from 3:00 - 6:30 Monday - Friday.

 

If your child attends a private school, we will consider tutoring at schools during the school day, dependent upon tutor availability and school permission.  We will also consider tutoring in your home before school starts, if their is a trained tutor available and open. A travel charge will be assigned for driving to your school or home.

Providing Notes to Students with Dyslexia
March 01 2018
Students with dyslexia find it almost impossible to take notes during a lecture. Dyslexia is a language-based learning disorder. Dyslexia makes it hard to write and spell, and taking notes during a lecture causes the dyslexic student to make a choice - do I listen and absorb the information, or do

"I just heard your ad on the radio today. Heidi helped our son a few years ago, and we are very thankful!! He is almost done with his first semester at the University of Iowa majoring in Biomedical Engineering! The SDS office at Iowa also accepted his dyslexia documentation so he was granted extra time to take exams, leniency on spelling/grammar and a distraction free testing environment. Thank you for all your help!"
