Sophia worked with my son who is autistic and dyslexic. I can only describe what she did as a miracle...
he went from crying about math to asking his teacher to quiz him. Her compassion and understand ing of dyslexia is a true gift to my family! -Sarah

Chloe enjoys reading more than before....she feels a lot more confident about her handwriting. She knows which way the letters and numbers go, which was a struggle before. She is very proud of having done the program and she does not feel negatively about being diagnosed as dyslexic, she is actually proud of it because she feels like she is creative and smart and that it is truly a "gift". -Joanne

We were looking for a dyslexia coach for our 14 year old son. Having tried multiple methods and resources to help him, we eventually found Sophia and the Davis Method. What I love about this approach is that it celebrates the giftings of the dyslexic mind, i.e. a picture thinker, while teaching when and how to suppress these differences. Sophia, in particular, has been very encouraging and patient with the results and is continuing to stand by us to see the process through to the finish. -Sarah P
Learning Tools changed our lives. That sounds trite and made-up but it's true, my child's life was changed for the better after the session we did with Sophia. My kiddo has struggled with some cognitive and behavioral stuff their whole lives and we have always been quick to find workable solutions and supports where we need them. Last summer we decided there needed to be some math help to get through the deregulation of summer and bolster our kiddo until September so we called around and found Learning Tools. This program is so much more than tutoring. Sophia took a deep look into the way our child's brain works and how they are in the world. Every lesson reorganizes a concept that the brain can use more readily. There are tools learned and used in this program that my kiddo uses every day in any subject. If your child is struggling in school or life in general in ways that look extra difficult to you, do yourself and your child a big favor and look into this program. We will always be grateful for this life-changing program. Side note: our kiddo has always had "struggling" academic grades. We are amazed and relieved this year to be seeing all grades in the 80% and higher range for the first time ever. Thank you, Sophia! -Esther
Learning Tools changed our lives.
Sophia's ability to connect with children and draw them in to the program is remarkable. The Davis Dyslexia program itself is unique in the way it reaches children. I have been incredibly pleased with both the program and Sophia's work with my children. I have two very different children with different learning issues and she worked with each to bring out their best and help them to reach their goals that they set. After years of working with various programs and specialists, our older child is now well on his way to reading and catching up on his reading level. Though it has required diligence and hard work, it has been very worth it! Our daughter did the math program and it completely boosted her confidence and her skills in math. She is not filled with the same dread she was before. And as a bonus, it quickly improved her reading level to the point that she has become a non-stop reader. Sophia's knowledge and guidance through all of this has been immeasurable and I am thrilled to recommend her! -Anna Katherine

- My 13 year old daughter attended the Davis Dyslexia Correction Program through Learning Tools six months ago and already we are seeing a great improvement. She worked one on one with Sophia in a calm & welcoming environment for six full days. Since then she no longer avoids reading and writing and her enjoyment and confidence have increased significantly - this after years of suffering at school. Her level of comprehension and use of vocabulary have also improved enormously, as has her spelling, in a very short period of time. In her own words this is what she says about the Davis Program: “Afterwards it did help me with my spelling and my understanding of the meaning - especially hard words that dyslexics have difficulty with. It was very interesting the way Sophia taught me how to do the Davis Program. In the end I would definitely say that it has helped me a lot. You just have to have the will power & courage to continue with program.” We cannot thank Sophia enough for her commitment and dedication and would not hesitate in highly recommending her and the Davis program for those with dyslexia.
