We are two schoolteachers, married 30 years, whose passion is to make life better for children. Sybil is the primary, full-time tutor, since Robert is a full-time special education teacher for Gwinnett County.
Sybil has taught for 15 years in public and private classrooms and as a reading and math tutor. She has a tutoring certificate from University of California Berkeley. Sybil is a Dyslexia Consultant and Screener, and she has been trained and certified to tutor two Orton-Gillingham methods for reading disabilities, including Barton Reading and Spelling. Additional trainings by Lindamood-Bell and Handwriting without Tears have provided further tools to address reading and handwriting problems. Sybil previously served children for another 10 years as a social worker for children with learning problems in a major children's hospital, and as a children's librarian.
Robert has taught for 23 years in public classrooms and as a tutor. Both have taught youth with ADD, ADHD, and Aspergers.
We have a son, who attended Gwinnett County schools for 7 years. He is a senior at Princeton University.
