The Reading Fairy

Could your child use a Reading Fairy?

What’s a reading fairy, you may ask? Some people call us a reading coach or reading tutor. But I like to think of it as a fairy, much like a fairy godmother, who unlocks magic. In this case, it’s the magic of reading. Here’s what the Reading Fairy offers:

wandF – fun and friendly

A – affordable assistance

I – in

R – reading for

Y – your child

If you live in Sonoma County, California, I am available to work with your child to strengthen his or her reading skills, give them confidence in their ability to master reading, and make the learning experience fun and creative. I draw upon my training as a Waldorf teacher, as well as the latest systems in using phonics, developing phonological awareness, and emphasizing decoding skills. Above all, I am committed to transmitting the love and beauty of reading to children, supporting them to unlock their own imagination in the process.

The process of learning to read involves both the left and right side of the brain. On the one hand, there must be interest, love, imagination, and playfulness in order to enjoy reading. On the other hand, there is a definite set of rules and strategies that can be learned, to make the process of reading more successful. I bring both imagination and systems to the learning process, meeting the child where he or she is currently doing their best, and moving forward from there.

Please contact me for a free consultation to determine if your child’s needs and my skills are a good match. References are available upon request. I can be reached at lduggan care of [at] Math and writing tutoring are also available.
