Dawn Johnson is certified in tutoring struggling readers in the Barton Reading & Spelling System.  She has had a passion for empowering her students to overcome their difficulties in reading and spelling since 2006.  She offers consulting for those who want to learn more about dyslexia and she also screens using a battery of tests exclusively designed to determine if a child fits the specific dyslexia profile.
Dawn believes that by providing students with the tools they need to overcome their weaknesses and by giving positive reinforcement of their improvements (big or small) throughout their learning experience; they will come to realize their own ability to succeed.  A student’s positive self-esteem is crucial.  She places the utmost importance on building a student’s self-image reminding them that they are wonderfully made by God, our creator.
