Teacher and Young Student

Rohn Marie Crichlow

American Montessori Society Teacher

& Literacy Advocate

We have been working with children for over 20 years.  Realizing the main issue of student's academic success was their reading ability and reading habits.  We aim to instill an innate love for reading. We believe in building a positive mindset and confidence by recognizing students' strengths and efforts.  

We are here to, create a partnership with students and parents, and even school teachers when welcomed. We strive for attainable goals set by the team.  Parents can expect collaboration with transparency and consistency. Contact me today for an initial consultation.

My Philosophy

I believe my role as a literacy advocate and educator is to nurture and encourage the lifelong learning of my students. Through one-on-one tutoring, classroom discussion, and even the use of humor, I hope to prompt students to think creatively and explore their natural curiosity. I want my students to feel that no question is too silly to ask. I am strongly committed to regularly assessing students' comfort and engagement in addition to their mastery of the material. I believe that regular testing of concepts is important, but students also need to feel like confident, resilient learners.

I praise students not just for mastery of the material but also for critical thinking, effort, curiosity, and creativity. I lead by example, always working to improve my own skills in these areas as an educator. Creating a welcoming space for learning is so important, especially for the youngest learners. As a reading coach, I am acutely aware that I am defining the experience of learning to read for my students. I work hard to make that experience a positive, nurturing one.  Education is not a one-size-fits-all discipline, and I believe it's essential that my approach is tailored to the specific learning needs of each student. I get to know the students as individuals so I can appropriately support and challenge them academically.
