To reach grade level expectations one must progress at a rate that exceeds the norm.  At Great Minds you will notice the increased rate of progress without question.     




Reading instruction is one-on-one and is suitable for children and adults.  Students will strengthen foundational reading and spelling skills, which in turn improve fluency, accuracy and comprehension.   

Cost - $35/session.


Intake evaluation for reading and spelling/dyslexia screening (required):  

An intake evaluation/dyslexia screening with Marianne Jylha is required for new reading students.  Marianne will determine skill levels in the areas of fluency with letter/sound/word recognition, decoding, spelling, writing and irregular sight words.  Difficulties will be compared to traits of dyslexia in order to plan instruction appropriately.  Results will be discussed immediately upon completion of the screening.  Please indicate in advance if you would not like to discuss the possibility of dyslexia.  

Cost- $75 


Written dyslexia report (optional):

If the student demonstrates the probability of dyslexia during the student screening, we will provide you with a written report. This multi-page document can be shared with educators and used to plan strategies for learning success. 

Cost- $50
