Edge Fearless Learning

How Do We Help?

We are frustrated by the one-size-fits-all approach to teaching. Every learner is different, and those differences should be celebrated. That’s why our approach to learning is different at Edge. 

We use a one-on-one teacher-student or small group instructional model that is individualized according to your student’s needs. Teachers are always focused on the learning needs of the individual student and design lessons and materials to work with students at their current level by pacing instruction to their individual strengths and weaknesses.

Early identification of a learning difference is the key component necessary to help students achieve academic success. Our tutors will help and guide you through the proper screenings and assessments. A free consult is available for the options that are available for your area of concern.

Screen & Assessment

In the same way a doctor screens and assesses for a health condition before determining the diagnosis and prescribing a plan of treatment, our method follows a similar process:

Screen and assess to determine the conditions present


Understand the cognitive and learning strengths


Create a plan of action for individualized support and accommodations

Understanding the Brain and Learning

Research shows each of us have a different way of learning and do not process information in exactly the same way. Each person has a unique and specific way of receiving and retaining information that is most optimal for them. For some, this may be through auditory processing, while for others it may involve the need for a visual cue to fully understand a concept. Through neuroimaging, researchers have observed that children are able to process information most effectively when they are engaging all of their senses – listening, watching, and touching. This multisensory approach to learning ensures that all students, regardless of their learning preferences, are provided with multiple ways to learn and understand information.

The Orton-Gillingham Methodology

The Orton–Gillingham Methodology was the first teaching approach specifically designed to help struggling readers by explicitly teaching the connections between letters and sounds and guiding the student through the process of the mechanics of reading. This methodology can also be applied to understanding mathematics.

A major component of the Orton-Gillingham approach is that it must be multisensory, aligning perfectly with how we know our brains learn best. We ‘retrain the brain’ using proven multisensory literacy and math methods that allow students to hear, see, and touch letters and numbers to improve reading and math scores. Our approach exercises all of the body’s senses through a multitude of lessons each building upon the previous lesson, which instills mastery as the student progresses.

The Orton-Gillingham Approach is effective because it is:


which involves at least two or more senses, including sight, hearing, and feeling


because there is an evident connection between lessons and instructors clearly explain what they are teaching and why it is important


as the students become proficient in each concept before proceeding to the next lesson


because of the constant monitoring of student responses to track progress and plan the following lessons


as the ideal student-teacher ratio is low (1:1 or 2:1), making it easy to accommodate the individual needs of the students

All of our tutors have been trained and credentialed in the Orton-Gillingham approach or related multisensory methods. Our instructors take the time to understand specific strengths, gaps, and weaknesses of individual students to formulate customized learning plans that break down concepts into manageable segments.

Teaching to the Edges

Edge provides tutoring services to create fearless learners. We provide virtual and campus-based tutoring that specializes in helping students (age 4-24) with language-based learning differences, and homeschooled students thrive in their education.

By teaching to the edges with compassion, as well as utilizing our specialized evidence-based assessment techniques, we are able to discover the ways your child learns best. In addition to helping gifted and homeschooled students, we can identify and overcome a variety of visual and auditory processing differences including:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Auditory-processing disorder
  • Dysgraphia
  • Visual-processing disorder
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
