Remediation, Tutoring & Homeschool Instruction Testimonials
“We had tried many, many types of programs and spent thousands of dollars to help our son, who had been diagnosed with a learning disability/dyslexia, to get him reading. A skill that was supposed to “come naturally” by 1st grade, was still eluding him in the 4th grade. While everyone else had moved on to chapter books, he was still struggling with The Cat in the Hat. I was at my wit’s end, as I saw our bright, talented, happy son’s self esteem and confidence plummet. Then we found Sheila!"...
We value every opportunity that we have to get to know our clients' families and work with their children.
Our client testimonials put in their own words what we accomplish with our students.
"We began searching for reading support for our daughter in 2008...Several people who I respect greatly highly recommended Lindamood Bell...We wanted to find a tutor who worked independently using the LMB materials and we found Sheila..."
"Upon entering the third grade we decided our son would be in need of reading services... The Lindamood-Bell style of tutoring had been recommended to us by our son's school. We liked the focus of LMB on imaging and really liked the fact that Reading Boosters would be able to offer the Lindamood-Bell style while adapting it to our son's needs and schedule.... The first year was hard work for our son as the strong foundation of skills were being developed and we definitely saw solid improvement in his decoding and word attack skills... Each year we made adaptations to his program which included LMB along with more personalized approaches and saw our son blossom in his overall reading/language arts skills. Each year our son's school would do an end of the year test for his overall reading/writing/language arts skills and this past year (6th grade) showed he had grown 9 grade levels since the beginning of third grade..."
"[The] Reading Boosters consultant that worked with our daughter was very professional and the personalize attention was very helpful. [The] Reading Boosters Instructor was trained as a Linda Mood Bell Instructor and really understood and used different methods to help teach our daughter the content and help her prepare for the 8th grade CRCT."
"My daughter loved working with her instructor. She really had a connection with her. She made the work fun and interesting. I was able to see steady improvement in my daughter's reading and other work."
"Our son is diagnosed with PDD, mild autism, ADD, and CP and is highly functional. He has a hard time with motor planning, reading, writing, and math... We researched and tried many programs for reading and math... After a friend recommended Sheila Durden/Reading Boosters, we decided to try her and the Lindamood Bell program for a summer session. The results were noticeable to us... We decided to ask Sheila to develop a full time home school program for our son for the following school year with the focus on reading and math. The school year was fantastic..."
"We have worked with Reading Boosters for more than 2 years now. Sheila, the owner, is a very talented individual and a nice person. She and an instructor at Reading Boosters have been working with my daughter and we have seen a great improvement since sessions began. Shelia and her instructors care and are very passionate about the children they are working with as if they are their own."
