Welcome to Smart Start Tutors!

Hi! I'm Alexa, the Owner and Founder of Smart Start Tutors, LLC. I am a certified Reading Interventionist, Orton Gillingham trained tutor and former elementary educator. I am also a wife and mom to twin 5 year old girls and a baby boy.

 

When I was in school, I struggled to read and write with proficiency and often felt inferior to my peers. It wasn't until my middle school Resource Teacher took an interest in teaching me by taking into account my learning style and interests that I really began to see the talents that were always within me.

 

My passion for teaching struggling readers comes from my desire to help all students become successful readers by discovering their unique learning style and drawing upon their strengths to overcome their challenges. All it takes is a teacher that believes in you and can help you to believe in yourself! 

Unfortunately, many parents don't realize that they can easily help their child overcome their struggles with 1:1 online tutoring from a certified educator and sessions that target their child's specific needs and goals. Get started today with a FREE Discovery Call!

Why Smart Start Tutors?

Why is Smart Start Tutors different from other online tutors?

We create and implement individualized reading intervention plans.

 

We take into account each child's unique learning style, personality and interests. 

Our highly engaging sessions are designed for students with a wide range of abilities including those with Dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, emerging readers, and developing readers.

 

Unlike other tutoring companies, we do not throw worksheets in front of your child or spend time on areas of reading that your child has already mastered.

 

Instead, we use research based, multisensory techniques to reach your child at their EXACT level of need which allows us to help them make the most progress with results that will last them a lifetime. 

We are dedicated to closing the reading gap while instilling confidence and a love for reading in every child.
