“Wendy is knowledgeable about dyslexia and is an amazing, well-trained Orton-Gillingham (OG) tutor. She understands her students and provides solid tutoring for children with dyslexia. She doesn’t promise a quick fix because there is no quick fix when working with dyslexics (you should stay away from someone who promises a quick fix or cure). What she provides is a consistent and structured environment for these kids. We know he will struggle all his life, but he now has the tools to succeed!” Wendy provides a customized, comprehensive approach for each child. She has a very hands on, colorful approach to learning which is perfect for kids. Also, she has ways to assess and track progress. I loved seeing (in print) exactly where my child was, what the challenges were, AND how he had improved. She also gave homework (which never felt like homework) to reinforce what he was learning. She is very personable, and her passion for helping kids is oozing out of her. Lastly, I will say that her personality, and ability to connect with and motivate kids is phenomenal! My son LOVED his time with Ms.Wendy” -M. Eisenberg

To Whom it May Concern:
I had the pleasure of working with Wendy Dobesh for the past two years as she was my son Henry’s tutor through the Dyslexia Reading Solutions for Children center in Moline.
Wendy is an excellent, patient tutor. My son is rather rambunctious, and has some focus issues in addition to his dyslexia, and she made sure to praise his effort consistently, and also let us know if there were issues he was struggling with. Her experience as a homeschooling mom really helped with her depth of knowledge on how to work with different students, and I she was always patient and prepared for my son’s sessions.
When Henry began the program he was a first grader, and he was not reading. When he first started, he had a negative attitude, and Wendy later told me that when he came back the first day, he dejectedly stated that he knew it was because he couldn’t read. Within a few weeks he was reading sentences, and his confidence only continued to grow during his work with Wendy. His last testing at school indicated he was reading on grade level, and he enjoys reading for fun as well.
Wendy will be the right choice of tutor for a wide range of students with dyslexia. She is knowledgeable, great at finding new ways to teach students, and wonderful to work with. Please call me at [removed] if you would like to speak in person, or email me at bennivan02 (at) gmail.com.
