We provide specialized online dyslexia, writing, and math tutoring that will make your child a successful learner.

You will feel relief watching your frustrated child love learning again.

Your bright, capable child cannot continue to fall behind academically.

Does the following sound familiar?

Your child is having difficulty learning to read.  Everyone says to give it more time, but your instinct tells you there’s something wrong. It shouldn’t be this hard for your child.

Your child has a hard time recalling basic math facts and is frustrated while trying. Now they hate math class, and completing homework brings everyone to tears.

Your child can’t write a complex sentence or a paragraph that makes sense. They still forget punctuation and capital letters at the beginning of every sentence, despite years of instruction.

Your child has been receiving Response to Intervention (RtI) Academic support for years but nothing seems to be getting better. Shouldn’t there be more progress by now?

We have teachers who solve these problems. Our certified dyslexia, writing, and math practitioners teach the way kids need to learn, resulting in increased confidence as skills improve.

Our hearts break when we see children struggling to learn.

Heather has been the best addition to my daughter’s education. We’ve only been working with New Paltz Multisensory for two months and already I see a confidence in my daughter and an eagerness to learn that I’ve never seen before. Heather has become an irreplaceable tutor and an advocate for our girl.

Parent of a 3rd Grade Student

My daughter who is 11 has struggled with reading. It is super challenging for her and makes trying really negative.  Since working with Heather’s team she is actually super excited to work with her teacher which is something that I have never seen.  Just today in the car she picked up something and read it and was like Mom I read it!!!  I can’t begin to explain how happy it made me to hear her excited to actually read on her own.

Parent of a 6th Grade Student

After many frustrating years of my child being overlooked in the public school system, I reached out to New Paltz Multisensory for help. In less than a year of working with Heather regularly my child’s reading, confidence and overall understanding of language has exploded, and she can now participate in school with full confidence. I don’t know what we would have done without this help and support. Heather has transformed my child’s educational experience.

New Paltz Multisensory, Explained

At New Paltz Multisensory, we know you want your child to be a successful learner.

Children with learning challenges like dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia need instruction based in the science of how the brain learns.  The problem is your child may not be getting that instruction at school, leaving them below grade level in reading, math, or writing. You feel powerless to help as you watch their frustration grow.

We believe every child will learn to love learning when material is presented in an accessible way. We understand the anguish kids feel about not being able to crack the code of reading while classmates soar ahead, or being stuck on multiplication tables while peers have moved on to division.

New Paltz Multisensory has the tutors and resources to solve your child’s learning challenges. Every literacy provider at New Paltz Multisensory is a certified dyslexia practitioner, trained in systematically breaking down information for learning. Through structured literacy, writing instruction, and multisensory math instruction we have solutions for your child’s learning needs.

Here’s how it works: 

  1. Contact Heather and set up a time to talk about your child’s learning needs.  
  2. You’ll share what your child excels at, as well as their areas of challenge.  We’ll discuss whether a literacy assessment is appropriate for your child, or whether it makes more sense to simply begin educational remediation through tutoring sessions.  
  3. Your child will be paired with a tutor who will be their guide on the journey to learning.

Contact Heather today so you can stop watching yet another school year pass by without your child receiving the help they need.  Get ready to watch your child love learning again!
