Anova Learning is part of the Neurolinguistic Learning Center. Since 2006, the NLC has been helping students in overcoming the effects of dyslexia, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Anova Learning does not simply offer assistance with subject content. Anova Learning provides Research-based strategies that address the underlying cause of student struggles to help make learning easier, faster and more fun.
My greatest joy is seeing "the lights come on" for my students, seeing them embrace learning, watching their confidence and self-esteem return.

In response to my own children's struggles with dyslexia and ADHD, I founded the Neuro-linguistic Learning Center.
Over the course of 15 years, we have helped hundreds of students in overcoming a variety of struggles in almost every subject.
What types of students have you worked with?
Approximately 80% of our students have been between the ages 6 and 16, 15% were adults purpusing college or career, and 5% were under the age of 6.
Approximately 60% of our students have been diagnosed with dyslexia, ADHD or Autism Spectrum Disorders; the remaining 40% had no official diagnosis with respect to their struggles.
Approximately 75% of our students have been male and 25% female.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I received emails from several parents who had purchaced my recently published book, "Cracking the Dyslexia Code", expressing their gratitude that their child was reading without struggle.
Several children were for the first time genuinely excited about school and learning.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Hire a teacher or tutor that will not only help the student catch up on missing content, but will provide the student with learning strageties specific to his or her sensory (learning) profile and help address any issues underlying the student's struggles.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
1) Do I learn best by EXAMPLE (being shown HOW to do something) or by CONCEPT and APPLICATION (being shown WHY to do something).
2) If I imagine my education as a block of swiss cheese, what holes in my education (missing information or concepts from PREVIOUS lessons/years) might be effecting my current struggles?
3) How will [this] teacher/tutor address MY specfic needs and help me achieve MY goals?
