Reading Restorations is a literacy program in Denham Springs providing one-on-one structured instruction to anyone who struggles with the written word. Twice weekly tutoring sessions are offered Monday – Thursday, from 9 AM to 7 PM.
One in five people have some form of dyslexia. And unfortunately, many never learn that they have dyslexia and do not realize that with proper instruction, dyslexia can be remediated. However, such instruction is expensive and out of reach for many who need it. What is more, we know that when the struggle is identified early, closing the gap sooner rather than later helps preserve one’s identity, worth, and dignity.
Reading Restorations is a local literacy mission that addresses the need for affordable literacy instruction in Denham Springs and Greater Baton Rouge.
One-on-One Literacy Tutoring Twice Weekly
If one in five people of the general public is dyslexic, then one in five of the children participating our after-school program the LANDers, and one in five of those who join our Saturday classes in the arts through the Young Artists’ Academy are likely struggling with reading, writing and spelling.
Reading Restorations is thus part of our O Happy Day! local mission for underserved communities in Denham Springs.
The children who need additional instruction in reading and writing are given one-on-one tutoring sessions two times a week. Funding for these sessions comes from donations to the O Happy Day! Ministries. We are extremely grateful for all those who continue to help us keep these programs available. Thank you.
Affordable Reading and Writing Instruction
Reading Restorations also provides tutoring sessions to all struggling readers, children and adults alike. We know how expensive it is to get the qualified help you may need for a student or adult struggling with reading and writing. Some families may even have more than one child who needs literacy tutoring.
We are here to provide an affordable option for those families and individuals in Denham Springs and Greater Baton Rouge who are looking for one-on-one reading and writing tutors for their struggling readers.
If you or someone you know is struggling with reading, writing, and/or spelling, contact us. Our twice weekly literacy sessions are offered Monday – Thursday from 9 AM to 7 PM.
Qualified Literacy Tutors in Denham Springs
Reading Restorations tutors are trained in a multisensory approach to structured literacy instruction which will assist students who are not able to close the learning gap in the regular reading classes.
Ellen DiMaria leads the program. Ellen’s teaching and homeschooling background is invaluable. In addition to having spent 15 years teaching 1st grade reading and then having spent 28 years home schooling her own children, Ellen has had first-hand experience with students who are not getting the multi sensory instruction they need to achieve their reading and writing goals. Her own daughter was one of those struggling students.
