Tutoring Resource Providers

The Slingerland® Institute for Literacy maintains a database of tutors, educational therapists and screening professionals. The Institute is happy to provide you with this information, however, the Institute neither certifies nor guarantees any of the persons listed. They are people we know to have satisfactorily completed one or more Slingerland® courses, but we are not able to supervise them and therefore cannot warrant their quality. They are not employed by the Institute – they are independent contractors. Scheduling and price will be worked out between you and the professional. We hope you find the help you need; let us know if we can help you further. The primary caregiver bears the ultimate responsibility for choosing a professional and monitoring the student’s progress.
