Children with dyslexia and other reading and math challenges often find their way to tutoring programs and yet make no progress. What is it that enables Windy Row Leaning Center to give those children the gift of success?
First, our tutors are all trained (with over 100 hours of instruction and supervised tutoring) in the Orton-Gillingham method, internationally known for helping children to read.
Second, our tutors do not simply rely on one method: they have at their disposal several internationally known reading and math programs as well as other resources; they are encouraged to be creative in their approach; and they accept each child as an individual, with individual strengths and challenges.
Third, all our tutoring is one-on-one, precisely so that tutors can construct an individualized program for each child. A child is assigned one tutor and stays with that tutor throughout their time at Windy Row, unless special circumstances arise.
Fourth, after a decade of tutoring children of all ages and at all grade levels, our tutors understand that dyslexia, dyscalculia and other reading and math challenges do not define the whole child. The children who come to us are supported in their creativity and their enthusiasms. We work with the child.
Fifth, we are not here to make a profit but to help children who are falling further and further behind grade level in reading and math. Our tuition is based on a sliding scale; the top tuition just covers the cost of tutoring and keeping records. We provide scholarships, thanks to the donations and grants we receive and our annual fundraiser selling holiday wreaths. We aim to never turn a child away for financial reasons.
If you know a child who has attended other programs without success, please info [at] windyrow.org (contact) Windy Row Learning Center in West Peterborough, NH. We make a difference for children every day.
