Gina: Doreen is an excellent tutor! She’s brilliant, kind, and an expert in dyslexia and the Orton-Gillingham Method. She is someone who continually seeks new information from a variety of sources to build her knowledge, make learning fun, and provide her students with excellent learning material. She’s always timely, well-prepared, and very patient. Doreen works very hard to help the student learn to “ own their learning opportunity,” provide tools to enable this, and eventually become so confident in who they are and their abilities that they can handle their work and situations on their own. She has been with my family for over six years, tutoring two of my four children. My older son she tutored from 3rd grade all the way to prep for high school! Today he’s a confident, brilliant student and person! We have Doreen to thank for part of that! We consider Doreen part of our family! I would recommend her to any child who really wants to improve their learning and feel confident in their abilities and who they are!

Rachel: She has been tutoring my son for three years and he is almost done with the program. She has helped him to achieve so much! He is doing fantastic! Reading above his grade level.
Trisha: Karen is a patient and very knowledgeable tutor in Barton. She has years of experience and it shows.
Lindsay:  Karen began tutoring my son within a week of our initial meeting. Within the 1st four months his reading level progressed beyond that of his years’ of school interventions! He has a long road ahead of him – but it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Without Karen Yunis he would not have even been in the race. Not only is Karen an excellent tutor but she is also very aware of my son’s well-being. She has accommodated our schedule so he can play sports, have playdates, attend last minute activities, and play outside on a beautiful day. We couldn’t ask for more!

Jennifer: Jane Gramenz is the most thorough, well-trained tutor we have worked with. As parents of five children and one who has dyslexia, we have extensive experience working with tutors. Ms. Gramenz has been working with our seven year-old since his initial diagnosis at age five and he is now a fluent reader, acquiring skills that are well above and beyond anything we could have anticipated. We deliberately postponed a move to Chicago because we couldn’t risk losing the momentum we have with Ms. Gramenz. She is that good.

Marla relates beautifully to my daughter. She is kind, empathetic, attentive…and knows how to both motivate her and support her – two tasks equally crucial given my daughter was 9 before we realized she was dyslexic. My daughter has made significant progress working with Marla AND she actually doesn’t mind the work most of the time – I attribute that solely to Marla’s style – her gentle prodding, her understanding of how to relate to children in a way that allows progress to be made (Marla works with many other children at my daughter’s school). Besides all of that, Marla is incredibly committed to learning all she can about how to teach children better and how to teach more teachers about literacy. She’s always taking new classes and workshops and learning new skills to improve her success as a tutor. She is a wealth of information about research and resources. I can’t recommend Marla highly enough.

Barton, own “programs” for science and math
Although most of my tutoring focuses on dyslexia, I am a trained scientist and can tutor in most areas of science, including Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Astronomy…. I have also been a long-term (3-5 months) middle school math substitute teacher. Additionally, I incorporate study skills into much of my tutoring. Without solid, good study habits, even the non-dyslexia student struggles.

Allison: Betty Macomber has been such an amazing help to our daughter! Not only does she offer the skills of a Certified Barton Tutor, but also the patience from being a Mom of a dyslexic student. This perfect combination has helped tremendously when working with our daughter during a tough time in the curriculum. From her own personal experience, she has been able to not only guide my daughter along the reading program, but has also helped to recommend other helpful steps in the journey of providing complete care. We are so grateful for all of her efforts!
Lindsey: She’s terrific!! We love her so much. She’s especially good with kids.
Julie: no comments
Jen: Betty Macomber is an amazing tutor and has been such a help with our boys!
Jamie: Betty is a certified advanced tutor for the Barton program, LiPS provider and Dyslexia consultant. Betty tutored my daughter and completed the Barton program with her. We are so very pleased with how much it has helped our daughter with dyslexia. Betty is warm, patient, skilled and so familiar with the material that she is able to easily help her students grasp the information and apply it, all within a comfortable, easygoing session. I highly recommend her!
Kimberly: I highly recommend Betty as your tutor. She is highly professional and knowledgeable on many levels regarding learning disabilities; dyslexia being one of those. She has a special rapport with her students, and does not lump them together. Her approach to each student is highly individualized. I have two children who are not only progressing, but excelling in certain academic areas, thanks to Betty’s leadership in tutoring.

Lisa: Candace changed my son’s life! She is amazing.
Jennifer: Candace is wonderful to work with! Both our boys find their time with her engaging and supportive.  My husband and I have been so grateful to have the support and guidance of her expertise with our sons’ learning. She is the best!!!
Julie:Candace is wonderful! She is so knowledgeable and has shared this knowledge with us freely! She has helped our son and understand what is going on and what he needs to do in order to work with the challenges he has. She has a special way of teaching and connecting with our son. He loves her and she gets him to work. She adjusts the sessions based on what our son can handle but she also pushes him when he can handle it. She knows him well enough to know when she can or can’t push him and he responses to it. I love watching her work with my son because she is amazing. She has been so helpful with ideas, websites, etc. as we’ve tried to work with the school to get our son what he really needs and not what ‘they’ think he needs. Candace was also instrumental in helping us find a neuropsychologist that we could afford in order to have our son tested. This has made everything from life at home, tutoring and school so much better for him (and our family). We are so grateful that she’s working with our son!

Margaret: Mrs. Anthony is thorough and professional, as well as compassionate towards the struggles these kids face. She totally understands the reality of what must be overcome, and has the means to make it happen for them. Yes, it will be expensive. Yes, it will take time, even a long time. But the cost of NOT giving a child the tools they need to succeed is…astronomical. She will also tell you if she can’t help you, and where else you might need to look. She is outstanding.
