smaller_testimonialHi Melane,

The work that you have done with our son this past year is just amazing.  When we first met, his dad and I were desperate not knowing what we were going to do with our son and his problem with reading. The school was not seeing the problems we were seeing and the dr’s thought he would just figure it out.

Meeting you and working with you has been the best thing that has ever happened to him! He went from reading a handful of words to reading books!

He has worked so hard and he proved it today when he came home with a coupon today for a free pizza because he moved up in his reading challenges.

Thank-you for all of your help!

Hi Melane

I just wanted to thank you so much for being in our lives. Not only for the help with her reading, but for her self confidence, that is what I have noticed the most. I can’t even express to you what a blessing your work has been. I just couldn’t stop squeezing her last night, I am so proud of her, I don’t even know what to do. And I know how hard this is, I am seeing more and more that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I so believe in what you are doing, I would scream it from the roof tops. I believe that this will have an everlasting impact on the course of her life. I only wish it would have been presented to me. It’s upsetting that this is not more known, this should be more exposed.    I am excited to learn more of what you do, and I am so so so excited to watch my little lady flourish.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you Melane.


Melane Culham is exceptional with kids. Our daughter was severely delayed in her speech and language comprehension which made her extremely frustrated in all aspects. While working with Melane, she quickly made huge gains and became a confident, talkative, eager little girl. Our daughter is now reading and understanding books above grade level. My daughter said “Melane makes you want to learn and she makes you feel good about yourself.”  Melane is very friendly and she encourages kids in the most beautiful way.

As soon as I met Melane she made me feel comfortable and supported.  She was very easy to talk to and genuinely cared about students and their learning.  She showed great determination and a dedication to learning and education. She implemented different strategies to support my student and his learning which ensured he was successful and felt empowered.  Both myself and my student really enjoyed working with Melane as she was always positive and committed.

Melane has many great qualities which make her suitable in any teaching and learning capacity.  She builds meaningful relationships with anyone she meets and is a loyal and dedicated educator.
