Mission Statement

NanKids Tutoring is a private, virtual-based learning disabilities tutorial service, based in Atlanta, Georgia, dedicated to improving the academic lives of children whose struggles are due to a specific learning disability often referred to as dyslexia and dysgraphia. Nancy Lindenbaum, the owner of NanKids Tutoring, is a dyslexia tutor who uses a re-education process, which includes Orton-Gillingham phonics that will affect all of the academic subjects to help make school easier. A re-education process, which includes Orton-Gillingham phonics, is used that will affect all of the academic subjects to help make school easier. The focus of the tutorial sessions is to remediate the students’ weaknesses and activate the language centers of the brain using a multi-sensory approach to reading and written expression.

NanKids’ mission is to help students become independent and confident in reading, writing, and thinking by teaching cognitive and self-advocacy skills as well as by helping the student to discover his or her own strengths and weaknesses.

Multi-Sensory/Non-Conventional methods to enhance proficiency and enjoyment of reading, writing, spelling, and math.

Individuals with dyslexia often have very creative minds and gifted intellect. However, they frequently struggle to learn reading skills and achieve math proficiency through conventional methods in traditional settings. As an experienced and trained dyslexia tutor, I employ Orton-Gillingham phonics to help children and adults with dyslexia and dysgraphia overcome and compensate for their unique learning challenges—empowering them to reach their full potential. Contact me today for more information about my tutoring services. I can’t wait to help enhance your proficiency and enjoyment of reading, writing, and math.

– Letter from a Student, Lindsay, Age 18
“After our son began working with Nancy, we noticed immediate improvement due to the fact that our reading tutor used Orton Gillingham phonics. He was eager to read books to his sister and to us and showed a completely different attitude towards learning. Because we used an ADHD ADD tutor his attention span and concentration so improved that his spring report card was exceptional.”
– Peggy & Roger, Parents of Alan, Age 6
“Nancy’s compassion and professional expertise supported Joshua through a difficult time. His reading level improved 4 grade levels in 5 months! She had the keys to tackling his dyslexia. Joshua wanted to share his successes with Nancy long after the tutoring relationship was finished.”
– Elizabeth, Parent of Joshua, Age 8
“When my son, Trevor, was diagnosed with dyslexia in the 2nd grade, he began tutoring with Nancy. Trevor is now in the 7th grade. When he took the Iowa Basic Skills Test, he scored at the freshman college level in reading. She was very patient, no matter how frustrated he got. He now reads for fun and doesn’t treat it as a chore.”

– Mimi, Parent of Trevor, Age 9

“I am a 37 year old successful artist and master printer who worked with Ms. Nancy while in 2nd through 4th grades. While reading and writing seemed impossible, Nancy’s persistence was instrumental in my ability now to read 30-40 books a year. Often when I read, I think about her.”

– Trevor, Age 37
