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

Having Sophia come work with our son was one of the best decisions we made when he was 6-years-old. Sophia has an amazing patience with kids and was a welcome addition to our family as she came to work 1:1 with our son for a few weeks. The Davis program can help reset and retrain the family on how a picture thinker’s mind works, and provides individuals and families the tools they need to succeed and overcome their challenges. Sophia spends time training the whole family on how best to succeed in shifting our teaching and reading methods, and reset our plan. It takes work and practice, there is no easy button. However, since working with Sophia, we have seen positive improvement with our son’s confidence and comprehension with reading and learning new words. She is still there to counsel or coach us when we need help. If reading is a struggle for you or your child, I wholeheartedly recommend you work with Sophia. -Courtney (Mom of a Young Learner)
Best decision we made.
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.
“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.
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

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
