Pride Learning Center Tutoring for students with dyslexia, auditory/visual processing difficulties and ADHD 4030 Birch Street, Suite 102, Newport Beach Phone (949)891-0125 email: info@pridelearningcenter.com Web: http://www.pridelearningcenter.com At Pride, we created a program that reaches every student, especially those who have been unable to learn through traditional based methods, whole-language or phonics programs. Pride's reading and writing program is based on Orton-Gillingham research and combines elements of listening, seeing, touching, and moving (auditory, visual, tactile and kinesthetic). The Pride program is very structured and follows a routine that begins with recognition of the letters, the sounds of the letters, and the sounds of letter combinations (phonemes). They first build a strong foundation for each student, fill in reading gaps from the past, and then move forward, step-by-step through practice and repetition. In addition to the one-on-one lessons with a certified Pride teacher, the students also utilize the latest advances in computer based reading technology to enhance learned concepts through a familiar multi-media interface. The Pride approach is unique in its ability to help students build lasting memories of learned concepts. Every child at Pride becomes an independent and confident reader!

Hey! I tried online tutors services and it was quite useful. I also often get help from professional writers like from https://ozziessay.com.au/ online service. They can do any assignment for you in time if you have some problems.

Math/Chemistry and Piano Tutoring:
USC graduate. I have worked with orange county homeschoolers for over 10 years tutoring math, chemistry, all elementary school subjects and piano. Math tutored through Calculus I. I work individually or in small groups. My students say I make the material easy to understand.
I am also a certified piano teacher for over 15 years. I train my students with music theory, utilizing
patterns in music and also having the student sight read the piece before leaving the lesson. Classical and popular music. Please contact me to discuss.

Need Help Teaching Language Arts to Your Child?
As a former public school eighth grade English teacher, I have found a new passion: teaching elementary students in my Laguna Hills home. The curriculum I use is Reading Street, and my students this year are in grade 2. I will be teaching these students again in grade 3, but I am also thinking of teaching another group of grade 2 students in the 2010-2011 school year. If you have access to the Reading Street Grade 2 or 3 materials and would like to have another teacher teach only language arts to your child this current school year or next school year, please contact me at reneeferrer@hotmail.com. Thanks!
