  • Your child will complete a one-hour informal assessment. The results of this assessment and any formal assessments your child has received will guide the planning for your child’s one-on-one lessons.
  • Strong command of the alphabetic principle is the foundation of reading and writing. If deemed necessary, this critical first step will be addressed through our unique multisensory printing method.
  • Your child will attend one lesson per week with a highly skilled and dedicated tutor. The lessons will be delivered using the Orton-Gillingham method. Lessons are multisensory and tailored to your child’s needs.
  • Lessons can be delivered online or in person. Online lessons can be very convenient, effective, and engaging. We are happy to discuss the format best suited for your child. In-person lessons take place in our bright and spacious tutoring rooms in NW or SE Calgary. We do not offer lessons in your home.
  • After each lesson, your child will be provided with a practice book covering the new material taught during the lesson. Practice should take no more than 15-20 minutes five times a week. The practice books are clear and divided into 4 easy steps that include targeted practice for reading and writing. This unique feature of Literacy Unlocked allows you, as the parent or caregiver, to observe your child’s progress in real-time.

“Kaitlyn has been supporting and teaching my daughter for 2 months and we have seen such an improvement. My daughter has begun to correct previous bad habits with the new set of skills Kaitlyn has taught Charlize. Charlize’s reading has improved, and she is beginning to enjoy it and take an interest in reading. Kaitlyn uses strategies and techniques that create a fun, educational environment for my daughter. My daughter says, “she is awesome” and we think so too!’
