I Teach Reading & Spelling

My passion is helping children become confident readers and spellers by teaching them how our written language works.


Parents often share feelings of frustration because they are unaware of how to help their child. The common advice to “sound it out” is not effective and causes confusion when met with a word such as sign. The approach I use builds a child’s understanding and confidence. I can tutor your child in reading, writing, spelling and specialize in dyslexia tutoring. 

Melane Culham

I am a reading specialist and educator with over 30 years of experience. I am passionate about teaching children to read and spell. When children begin to read with ease, their lives change. I am fortunate to be able to help foster this ability and be a part of the “a-Ha!” moment when it all starts to make sense.

What Parents Say about Me

Appreciation is a wonderful thing. My goal is to help your child improve reading, writing, spelling, and comprehension.
