Welcome To Literacy Education Center

The Literacy Education Center is a learner-centered academic enrichment facility that promotes life-long success by building great readers, writers, and speakers. The mission of the reading center is to accelerate your child’s inner gifts, talents, and creativity based on his or her learning style. Everyone succeeds!

As an experienced professional and educator, LEC provides private one-on-one tutoring sessions to help students improve their educational performance, develop study skills, prepare for academic examinations or gain occupational skills. I offer feedback, assess students’ academic needs and design individualized plans that support learning success. As a reading expert and experienced teacher in the field, I am confident in managing students from different age groups and learning capabilities. My tutoring services include reading, writing, math, and all other Language Arts related needs.

Homework Help
I hear from so many parents that “schools are not like the schools I remember when I was a child!” I agree! I am with you and totally understand (remember I have a school-aged child). 21st century learning is more fast-paced with a more advanced curriculum. LEC is here to help your child with homework assistance that will reinforce what was taught during the school day through critical thinking. Homework time should be fun and not stressful for you or your child.

“She taught him how to strategize and analyze the use of the proper words. His average grade in Reading was in the 70’s. After three weeks of tutoring his grades moved to 90’s and 100’s.”

Learning should be personal and intentional.
