The Founder, Diana Myers-Finch, M.Ed., is a certified teacher in Florida and California. She is also an internationally certified Reading Recovery Interventionist with training in:

  • Reading Recovery
  • Orton-Gillingham Methods
  • Multi-Sensory Learning (MSL)
  • California Early Literacy Learning (CELL)
  • Words Their Way
  • Many Structured Phonics Programs  


Diana's intensive training and extensive experience make it possible for her to "go down the rabbit hole" with a struggling reader and effectively "fill in the hole" so that the foundation becomes secure and further instruction is effective.

Our approach is to thoroughly assess the learner and then devise custom instructional methodology by combining all of the above modalities strategically, based upon the individual learner's needs.

These methods are effective at all ages and are compatible with all educational programs.

Services are rendered in person or worldwide via Skype.
