Our Teaching Philosophy


Our students and their success are our TOP priority.

  1. We believe in quality tutoring given with high doses of emotional support. 
  2. We support students emotionally and academically as they conquer their reading and spelling challenges. 
  3. At Aspire, a child’s confidence grows with their improvements in reading, writing and spelling.
  4. Our students thrive because they discover that they can succeed.

Empathy and Empowerment - it’s in our DNA


Aspire believes in quality, trained professionals delivering Orton-Gillingham reading programs as designed. 


Personalized Services / Customized Locations

We don’t just tutor at our Douglas location.  Several private schools in the area allow us to come in and tutor children during the school day.  We also tutor at student homes if the location is convenient for the tutor and family. 


Aspire Academy will travel!

Customer Comments

"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!"
