Irlen Syndrome Screening


About Me

Philly Photo.jpeg

I'm Paula Stone, Certified Academic Language Practitioner, IMSLEC Certified Dyslexia Tutor, ESL Instructor and Certified Irlen Syndrome Screener. My passion is reading, and it breaks my heart that some people struggle to read. My work with ESL students and Irlen Syndrome clients, introduced me to many children and adults who have difficulty reading for no obvious reason. My desire to understand this problem led me to dyslexia tutoring.

As a C.A.L.P., my specialty is structured, multi-sensory language education based on Orton-Gillingham principles. I tutor students remotely and in person using the Barton Reading and Spelling System and Kilpatrick's Equipped for Reading Success program. Because of my training and experience, I'm able to tailor the curriculum to meet the individual needs of each student. I'd be happy to talk with you about how I can help your child overcome their reading difficulties.

How It Works

How It Works

Dyslexia Tutoring


One-on-one tutoring for a minimum 2 sessions per week, using the Barton Reading and Spelling System.

Rate: $60/hour

A professional dyslexia diagnosis is not necessary to begin tutoring. If your child is struggling with reading and spelling, I'll identify and address their particular needs.

ESL Tutoring

One-on-one or small group tutoring available for reading, writing, grammar and speaking.

Rate: $50/hour


My office is in Whitefish Bay, WI.

Online tutoring is also available for dyslexia.


Irlen Syndrome Screening

•Are you sensitive to light?

•Do you get headaches or sleepy when reading?

•Do words move or jump off the page? (Yes, that's a thing.)

These can be symptoms of visual processing disorder, also known as Irlen Syndrome.
