"The Diagnostic Reading Assessment Package that Lynn provided helped to answer so many questions I had about my sons' reading levels. I also love that she provides tutoring right from the comfort of our home virtually. As a homeschooling mom of three I always worried my boys were behind. Now I can rest with ease knowing exactly where they are at and any areas they need additional help. Thank you Lynn!"

-Sonia H., homeschooling mother of three


You know you want to find solutions to help your child with their reading, but you aren't sure what's missing or where to start.

Let's face it--there's nothing more frustrating than trying to help your child with their reading and writing, only to feel like you're missing the mark and never actually helping them grow their skills. And there's nothing more disheartening than having your child breakdown because they don't understand what they are trying to learn.

You know that you should be having them tested and providing additional reading support. Maybe you've even tried different programs to help and guide them.

And yet, it's not quite working.


And I want to help you answer the questions about your child's reading skills, once and for all.

I'm a former public school teacher with 27 years of experience. In my career I provided reading instruction for struggling readers as part of the school's support team. I identified gaps in their reading skills ad then worked with the students to close those gaps.

As a mother, step-mother and grandmother I know how helpless it can feel when your child struggles with their reading. I created Tutoring With a Smile to help parents feel empowered and more importantly to help kids feel confident as they grow their reading skills through added support and tutoring services.


Imagine knowing how to help your child

Here's what that would look like....

  • Understanding of your child's reading strengths and weaknesses
  • Identifying the gaps in their foundational skills
  • Addresses the gaps in their education
  • Creating a plan to focus in on what your child needs to learn and work on
  • Feeling reassured that you are getting your child the help and support they need to succeed with answers
  • Three 1 hour tutoring sessions with your child to improve areas of educational weakness


This package not only has your child assessed but provides you with special tutoring savings to get them the help they need fast.

This Bundle and Save option allows families to first find out exactly where their child is by using a Diagnostic Assesssment.

The Diagnostic Reading Assessment is an amazing testing service, designed to help you hone in on your child's key areas of reading skills, so that you can empower them to improve their reading, comprehension and points of weakness.

The Diagnostic Reading Assessment Package was originally created to help public schools assess children and achieve understanding of gaps or troublesome areas in a child's education. While I use the Qualitative Reading Inventory 6th Edition to help test your child I also supplement with informal reading items focused on phonological and phonemic awareness.

If you are a parent of a struggling reader, or if you want to help fill the gaps and build confidence in your child's reading skills, this is an opportunity that I promise you will not want to miss.

The tutoring option included in this bundle is what really takes it to the next level though.

In this bundle you will not only get the assessment mentioned above but also gain 3 one hour tutoring sessions just for your child following the assessment. It's a great way to take the road map we've created (the assessment) and start working towards goals for your child's education through tutoring.

"Our daughter has shown improvement in reading, spelling, and writing. She is also showing increased self-confidence, empowerment, and is raising her hand more often in class."

 Stefany G., mother


I provide an interactive assessment experience instead of the traditional computer based standard.

Often times when a standardized test is done the child is testing on a computer alone. In my assessment I work with your child virtually but instead of a fill in the bubble test set up I guide them through a series of questions. I also provide parents with complete report of the test results, within 4 business days, which includes easy to follow and understand answers.

- STEP 1 -


Your child will sit down with me for a 60-90 minute assessment virtually. During this time I will conduct the assessment in a fun and interactive way to keep them engaged while gathering answers.

- STEP 2 -


Following the assessment I will meet with you for a brief overview and to answer any questions you may have from the assessment.

- STEP 3 -


A report of the test results will be emailed to you within 4 business days. You can then take the next steps toward tutoring or additional support to fill any learning gaps found.

- STEP 4 -

Tutoring Services

The final item in this bundle is the tutoring services. When you buy this package you also will have three 1 hour sessions for your child to use.

This is the BEST way to finish out the package since you will not only know where your child need additional help but also be able to provide them with the added support through tutoring in those areas.

You will simply schedule each session for your child and watch them grow not only their learning skills but also their confidence. As a parent there is no greater joy than watching our children develop confidence in their own skills.

Don't miss this very special opportunity to not only have your child assessed but to grab a great tutoring package as well.

Is an assessment or tutoring right for my child?

Does online tutoring work?

My students and I get to know one another and develop a rapport just as if we were meeting in person.   There are so many resources to use online that it is easy to individualize instruction and address the needs of your child.

Why should we choose you as our child's tutor?

  • My process works and children experience success.
  • Reading scores go up.
  • Test scores go up.
  • Motivation goes up.
  • Kids enjoy learning again.
  • They have fun reading.
  • Students experience increased self-confidence. 
  • My students smile more and so do their parents!
  • Homework takes less time.
  • Stress is reduced at home and school.

How does online tutoring work?

Tutoring sessions are held as ZOOM meetings.  Every student receives a personal code they will use each time they enter ZOOM.  We see and talk with each other, share documents, and go to online reading programs.

How do you pay for online tutoring?

Payment is made for sessions one month in advancethrough an online payment systems like Zelle, Stripe or PayPal. You can also pay by clicking the sales links above which will allow you to pay in multiple forms.

Do you help with homework?

Generally no.  My instruction is based on developing your child as a reader, rather than homework assignments.

What are the benefits of tutoring online?

  • Work with the tutor of your choice, no matter where you live in the world.
  • No transportation is necessary.
  • More consistent attendance = more consistent progress.
  • “Germs” are not an issue, yours, theirs or mine. 

Do you have a proven process?

Yes! I follow these three general steps which are to first assess foundational reading skills. Next I identify weaknesses in foundational skills and close those reading gaps. Finally, I set reading goals based on  your child’s level of functioning and build from there.

  • Be positive
  • Be encouraging 
  • Develop a rapport
  • Celebrate their progress
  • Challenge students “just enough”  
  • Teach from an overflowing toolbox full of programs and strategies that work
  • Be flexible based on what works for your child  
  • Based on experience and research, phonics (letter sounds) is an essential foundation for reading.  Learning phonics does not have to be boring or overly complicated, but it is essential.
  • Having taught hundreds of students to improve their reading I still love seeing them increase their reading levels, test scores, self-confidence and motivation.

What does online tutoring cost?

The rate is $60 for a one-hour session.

Two or more sessions a week are $55 per session. For the above offer I am offering a significant discount compared to my standard hourly price.

How long will my child need a tutor?

How long your child needs tutoring depends on many factors: 

  • How far below grade level are they?
  • What learning challenges does your child have?
  • How often are they scheduled to attend tutoring?
  • Do they regularly attend tutoring sessions?
  • How qualified is your reading tutor?
  • Do the students have parental support?

Do you tutor during the summer?

Yes, I tutor all year-round.  Students lose hard earned progress and momentum during vacations and holidays.  Even small losses set struggling readers back.
