This means that all students who work with Read with Leanne are taught using evidence-based methods that have been proven to be effective in helping children become successful readers.

The Science of Reading

The science of reading refers to the body of research and knowledge about how we learn to read. A combination of linguistics, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and educational research has greatly advanced our understanding of reading development.

As a reading tutor, Leanne incorporates this valuable information into her curriculum to ensure that all students are given the best possible support in their reading journey.

Structured Literacy

Structured literacy is an instructional approach that follows the science of reading. It is a systematic and explicit method of teaching that focuses on developing strong foundational skills in phonics, decoding, fluency, and comprehension.

This approach is essential for struggling readers as it provides them with a clear and organized framework upon which to build their reading skills.

Why It Works

Structured literacy has been proven to be effective in helping students become successful readers. Providing a structured and sequential approach to learning allows students to progress continuously while addressing specific areas of difficulty. This increases confidence and motivation in reading, resulting in joyful and confident readers.

"When a child memorizes ten words, they can only read ten words. If a child learns the sounds of ten letters, they will be able to read; 350 three-sound words, 4,320 four-sound words and 21,650 five-sound words".

Our son was having difficulty reading and after only a few weeks with Leanne, his improvement was tremendous. The attention to detail Leanne provides is unmatched and her genuine compassion for our son is impressive! After a couple of months of Leanne’s sessions, his teacher stopped us (unsolicited) to boast about his positive development, proving the effectiveness of Leanne’s tailored approach. If you’re reading this and your kid is having trouble, contact Leanne now.

Leanne has been such a blessing for my family. I have 3 boys age 6 and 7, my oldest has some delays and between going to different therapy’s throughout the week plus homeschooling I needed something we could stay home for. I wasn’t sure how virtual learning would work when it came to phonics but I decided to give it a try, and boy am I glad that I did. My oldest has advanced greatly in the months since beginning with Leanne, my youngest as well was a bit behind where he should have been and I within just a few weeks he has become such a confident and aggressive reader. It’s a joy for him to sit down and read to his father and I. Leanne and virtual learning has exceeded my expectation and I’m so glad I gave it a shot.

Ms. LeAnne is the sweetest person with a loving, compassionate , friendly personality. My son used her support for the Language Arts tutoring when he was in Elementary grades and he loved her very dearly. He felt very comfortable with her and always looked forward to attending her sessions. She always rewarded the child for each of the session. I highly recommend Ms. LeAnne to anyone who is looking for a LA teacher..Ms. LeAnne, you are a wonderful teacher!! Thank you for everything and for the wonderful support. Our love to you.

So happy to have found Leanne for my children. I was waiting for a teacher to teach my child how to read and going into 2nd grade there wasn’t any form of learning how to read, I felt so upset and after just a couple weeks with Leanne my child was reading that it brought tears to my eyes. My other two children have been learning with her right away and my 7 year old is reading fluently. The program is fun, simple and not overstimulating on the eyes ! We love reading with Leanne !

The love for reading and teaching children to read with Leanne is just amazing. My daughter has learned so much and grown in not only her reading and comprehensive skills, but also in her overall confidence in such a short time. This program is invaluable. Not only are we seeing the progress at home, but her teacher is seeing it as well. She had amazing growth so far this year and I know she will only continue the growth. We are very thankful for our sessions with Read with Leanne.

Ms. Leanne is the best reading tutor - EVER (even virtually which makes her even more amazing!). My son was really struggling (5 year old) with even identifying all his letters. He just wasn't interested and had been embarassed at school for not knowing the answers so just reviewing ABCs with him was impossible. I hired Leanne, (who is very reasonably priced) and in about a month he is reading full words! He does all his classes virtual and I am amazed at how she keeps him engaged and follows his cues. Best money I have spent because reading is so important!
I cant say enough about Ms. Leanne, she is amazingly talented. Lots of patience, willingness to find the niche that works for each individual child. Both my children are complete opposites and bring there own challenges to the table. Leanne has a hidden talent of being able to find the best fit learning experience to mold for each one. I highly recommend her.
If it weren’t for Ms. Leanne, I wouldn’t be surviving this COVID homeschooling thing. Being worried about curriculum quality from our school and my delivery as the in-person instructor had me worried that my kids weren’t doing well in reading. However, Ms. Leanne has a well-structured and very engaging curriculum than has my kids thriving in reading.
Miss Leanne is every bit “the reading fairy!” She makes reading magical, fun, engaging, and so very personalized. My daughter (6), looks forward to her virtual sessions and Leanne does an amazing job keeping her engaged and on-track with her reading. She connects with her on a personal level and we’ve definitely noticed an improvement and confidence boost in reading with our rising first grader. Highly recommend securing a spot with “Leanne the Reading Fairy!”
Leanne is a miracle sent from up above. We could not have asked for a bigger blessing than her to get our daughter to where she needed to be and excel in reading. Our daughter was struggling with reading and Leanne executed a plan and within no time had her reading like never before.

Yoga storytelling implemented at Scheck Hillel

Scheck Hillel Community School in North Miami Beach has implemented yoga as a way to deepen and reinforce pre-literacy skills in Early Childhood students.

Yoga storytelling is part of this Jewish school’s approach to individualized education: nurturing learners in mind, body and spirit. The program’s instructional activity is designed to help the students visualize the story, resulting in strong comprehension, while obtaining the physical and mental health benefits of yoga as a form…

Miami Herald: At this preschool, kids learn downward-facing dog

A private Jewish school near Aventura is combining yoga with storytelling in the hope of teaching pre-literacy skills to its preschool-age children. Leanne Weinbrot of Scheck Hillel Community School teaches yoga poses to her class of 3- and 4-year-olds as she tells stories of bunnies and crabs escaping the clutches of wolves and crocodiles — all while holding a beaver puppet named Babs. The yoga poses she shows the students match the vocabulary they learn from the stories. Weinbrot said she believes incorporating motion into the classroom makes the lessons stick. Weinbrot, also a first-grade teacher at the K-12 school,…
