Empowered Literacy LLC offers personalized K-8 tutoring services for reading and spelling using Structured Literacy and the Orton-Gillingham Approach. Sessions are offered to children with and without learning differences. Additional services for teens in grades 9-12 are available to those who are continuing in our services.
Empowered Literacy LLC is based in CT, but virtual tutoring is available.
Empowered Literacy LLC is run by Lisa Baker, M.A., A/OGA, C-SLDI.
At this time, tutoring services are only being offered online. I look forward to exploring the option of in-person sessions with students in the future.
Please reach out with questions about how I keep our virtual instruction highly-engaging and multi-sensory!
To empower students to understand and overcome their learning challenges, and feel successful in their reading and spelling skills.
An Important Message:
Over the years, I have learned the POWER in speaking openly with children about their struggles. Teaching a child about how their brain is working, and the ways our instruction is helping to rewire their brains to work more efficiently so they can read and spell more easily can be so empowering. Being open and honest with children about their challenges can help them learn that they are not alone, and that there is nothing wrong with them. This is the first step in helping children feel confident and become ready to access new learning.
A Personalized, Multisensory, Diagnostic & Prescriptive, Sequential, Incremental, Cumulative, Systematic & Structured Approach to Teaching Literacy Skills
“We prefer to think of this outline as an approach to phonics rather than as a particular method because we believe that the essence of a good program is its flexibility and adaptability and that a good teacher must be ever alert to the needs of individual pupils and resourceful in finding ways to meet those needs.” - June Lyday Orton
"If you do it right, you will be privileged to have transformed a life.” - Diana Hanbury King
