“Both my nine-year-old and my twelve-year-old made immense progress in their week with Sophia. They are now reading much more fluently and challenging themselves with their reading materials.
Sophia met them with warmth and professionalism and in a very short amount of time was able to create a connection that made the learning possible and meaningful. As parents, we are deeply grateful for the Davis method and particularly for Sophia as a gifted facilitator” -R.L.
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
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

I highly recommend Learning Tools. Sophia does an excellent job of teaching the Davis program. My grandson, age 13, recently took the math and writing program from her. Since then, he has made more progress in these areas than in the last three years in a school for dyslexic children! Sophia is knowledgeable, patient, flexible, and has great follow-up, too. Just wish we had found Learning Tools earlier! -Jan A
"Learning Tools made a huge difference for our family and with our daughter. We weren't aware the extent of her challenges until well into middle school. Inviting Sophia to support us eased the sense of overwhelm we had. She had a calm presence and a warm style that resonated with our daughter. We not only saw a significant difference in our daughter's reading comprehension and writing ability, but we were heartened by her engagement in the learning process. We'd recommend Learning Tools!" -Charlie

I'm so grateful for the dyslexia correction work that Sophia did with my son. He was a different kid after the first day. He was happy again. He now recognizes when he is becoming disoriented and corrects himself. Sophia spent time with my husband and I too and we can now identify when he is disoriented and also when he triggers on words while reading. We learned so much from her. She agreed to travel here (to Alaska) and spend a couple of weeks so that he could be in his home environment while going through the program and I think that helped him during this process. We were able to meet with his teachers and she provided the school with a presentation about dyslexia. We are so grateful and wish we had found Sophia from Learning Tools and the Davis Dyslexia Program sooner. -Starla
