  • Orton Gillingham trained tutor – Certified Georgia Teacher with 25+ years of experience –
    Anxiety, anger, frustration – these are the feelings that children struggling to read battle each day. LeAnn provides a safe, structured environment in which children’s fears are diminished and learning takes place. An Orton Gillingham multisensory approach is used to ensure that students become strong independent readers. Since each child is unique, LeAnn believes flexibility on her part is essential in helping each student reach his or her potential. After 25+ years of teaching experience, LeAnn draws from several different resources to help promote mastery.
    LeAnn is married to Scott Martin. They live in the Decatur area with their two children, Shepard (17) and Rebecca (14) along with their pets - a yellow lab, Barley, and their cat, George. Shep and Becca began their education at an Atlanta classical Christian preparatory school which helped pave the way for their homeschool model. LeAnn and Scott felt called to homeschool in 2008 and have been blessed in many ways as they have journeyed this path.
    LeAnn tutors reading/spelling, and writing for K-8. She will be starting a homeschool bi-weekly class for students with Dyslexia for the school year 2017-2018. For more information, please call or text LeAnn at 404.788.6077 or email her at slsr@bellsouth.net.
