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.

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!
Brooks: Emotional support for parents/children as they work through processing dyslexia and related issues.

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.
