The comprehensive survey ensures a thoughtful, productive, and efficient initial meeting. You may email your answers and thoughts to these questions to restorativeliteracies / @ / gmail.com.
A gentle reminder: While Restorative Literacies is not a direct tutoring service, it can provide coaching on interpreting assessment reports completed by schools and/or outside agencies and the process of choosing a prescriptive reading program or tutoring services.
