Help Improve Your Dyslexic Child's Reading and Spelling Skills with 3D Learning Experts' Online Tutoring Program
Commonly Asked Questions
ARE YOUR SERVICES THE SAME AS TRADITIONAL TUTORING CENTERS?
NO. We are not the same. Most tutoring programs don’t know how to help individuals with Neurodiversity. We tutor using Orton-Gillingham based curriculum, which is systematic and multi-sensory. The approach we use is completely different from that of your average tutor or center. We do not help with homework or fill in the holes in their learning. We go back to basics and build a strong foundation and build up from there. We individualize the program for each student based on the initial student intake screening and tutor's observation.
HOW IS YOUR PROGRAM DIFFERENT FROM OTHER TUTORING PROGRAMS?
We provide 1 on 1 tutoring to students using multi-sensory methods called the Orton-Gillingham Approach. This type of instruction was developed in the 1920’s specifically for Dyslexic students. The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a direct, explicit, multisensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive and flexible way to teach literacy to students of all learning styles, when reading, writing, and spelling does not come easily to individuals, such as those with Dyslexia.
DO YOU INDIVIDUALIZE?
Yes, we individualize our program to fit each student’s needs based on the initial parent consultation, student screening and tutor's observations.
CAN YOU TEACH MY TWO CHILDREN TOGETHER?
This is not an option because no two Dyslexics are exactly alike, and the program we use is designed for 1 on 1 tutoring. Allowing your child to go as fast or as slow as needed. Group tutoring sessions will not result in the same level of success.

AM I TOO OLD FOR TUTORING?
We tutor students from age 7 and up to adulthood. It’s not too late to end your reading struggles. If you are an adult who reads slowly, has trouble putting your thoughts on paper or is a terrible speller, we can help. One of our favorite O-G programs is perfect for teaching teens and adult students how to read and spell, well. It is not childish.
WHAT KIND OF COMMITMENT IS REQUIRED FOR TUTORING?
A one-year commitment is expected, however, we offer a "90 days: Love It or Leave It" option. If you find that the expected progress isn't met within the initial 90 days, we will cancel the contract. Your satisfaction remains our top priority.
DO WE HAVE TO PAY FOR ANY SUPPLIES OR MATERIALS?
We provide all materials needed for tutoring.
HOW IS ONLINE TUTORING DIFFERENT FROM IN-PERSON TUTORING?
The distinction between the two tutoring approaches is minimal. In the case of remote students, they meet on an engaging virtual tutoring platform where both students and tutors have shared control. We continue to use multisensory methods which are beneficial for students with Dyslexia. The main difference between online and in-person is our online students practice developing their typing skills, rather than handwriting skills. Students find enhanced concentration online compared to in-person sessions due to the comfort and tranquility of their familiar surroundings. We have found online tutoring to be highly successful for our ADHD students.
HOW OFTEN DOES A STUDENT NEED TO BE TUTORED?
Consistency is a key factor for achieving success. Optimal results are observed when students engage in two or more sessions per week, facilitating effective retention of the imparted knowledge. Given that individuals we work with often grapple with memory challenges, reinforcing information becomes essential for successful learning. Session duration can be flexible, ranging from 15, 30, 45 or 60 minute session, depending on factors such as the student's attention span, age, desired pace of progress, and the extent of Dyscalculia severity and presence of Autism and severe ADHD.
