I began my journey into dyslexia tutoring when my son was identified as dyslexic. He was tutored using the Barton Reading and Spelling System, and it changed his life. As I watched my son go through the program, he regained his self-esteem, learned how to read and spell, and achieved the academic success he craved.
After witnessing my own child’s experience, I knew I wanted to help others who struggle with dyslexia. I sought training in dyslexia screening and obtained certification in the Barton Reading and Spelling System. In 2011, I launched Randak Dyslexia Services.
My team of trained tutors and I love to help children at all grade levels (and even adults) overcome dyslexia. We can't wait to meet you!
Randak Dyslexia Services has been helping people learn since 2011. We are based in Billings, Montana, and provide one-on-one tutoring and dyslexia screening locally. We can also provide these services via the internet and have tutored students across the world.
Possible Signs of Dyslexia:
Trouble with sight words (the, would, because, etc.)
Slow and inaccurate reading
Letter reversals beyond first-grade ("b" instead of "d")
Confuses left and right
Frequent ear infections as a young child
Difficulty remembering math facts
The screening determines if a child has the symptoms of not only dyslexia, but also of dysgraphia – a condition that frequently occurs with dyslexia causing difficulty with the physical act of writing. Finally, we give a brief assessment for Irlen Syndrome, a light sensitivity condition often coexisting with dyslexia. Screening results and suggested school accommodations are put together in a written report.
WE OFFER 3 DIFFERENT LEVELS OF SCREENING, SHOWN BELOW
Using the Barton Reading and Spelling System, an Orton-Gillingham-based program (the only type of program recommended by the International Dyslexia Association), we teach dyslexic students to read and spell in a way that makes sense to them and allows them to succeed. Owner Angela Randak is certified in the system and trains her tutors to use it.
*Reading and Spelling tutoring consists of 45-minute sessions offered either
twice or three times a week.*
Students with dyslexia often struggle with math as well. We provide multi-sensory, dyslexic-friendly, one-on-one tutoring and homework help for our math students.
