The approach I use draws children in, fosters growth especially when started early, and is supported by research. There have been exciting advancements in the understanding of reading and spelling development for both English Language Learners and English speaking students who are struggling; call me to discuss your child’s progress. Our initial conversation can help you see how what I offer could be helpful for your child.
What word comes to mind when you and your child discuss English spelling - weird? unpredictable? crazy? Now imagine how children feel when they learn that English spelling is NOT weird or unpredictable or crazy! Making sense of our English language clears the way for learning to happen; the excitement when children have access to this understanding is amazing.

My passion is helping children to become confident readers and spellers. I have a Master's of Education and nearly 30 years experience as an educator. Call me--let's get your child reading!
Melane Culham, M.Ed.I am a Reading Specialist and educator with nearly 30 years of experience. I am passionate about teaching children to read. When children unlock the reading maze, their lives change. I am fortunate to be able to help foster these skills and be a part of the “a-Ha!” moment when it all finally starts to make sense. I acknowledge that parents can feel frustration when their child is clearly talented in many ways yet struggles with reading. I have the tools to not only help children learn to read but become more confident readers. Let’s remove the effects of overlooked reading difficulties on a child’s self-esteem; let’s change the perception of children who see others around them learning with such apparent ease that they come to the (unfortunate and incorrect) conclusion that they are just “not smart.” Let’s get your child reading!
