Why Does SDBC Tutoring Exist?

"Helping children receive the education they need."

Our tutoring program will include tutors trained in a modified Orton-Gillingham approach, which has helped many dyslexic children improve their literacy. This sort of tutoring is normally very expensive, so we're excited to make this quality supplemental education accessible to children who experience learning challenges due to dyslexia.

The SDBC Tutoring Program works with elementary-aged students who attend our local South Delta elementary schools. We are excited to be able to support our local families as they navigate the learning challenges associated with dyslexia.

All of our volunteers go through an intensive 30-hour training program which familiarizes them with the Orton-Gillingham Method and how to use it to meet the needs of individual students.
