Our daughter, Anna, has been reading with Dedee for six months. With Dedee's help, Anna's reading "clicked" and she advanced an entire grade level.
Dedee is a wizard. Anna loves her, because she makes reading fun and easy. Our family is learning a lot, too!
We highly recommend Dedee and her brilliant teaching.

Dedee and I hae been homeschooling my 14 year old son, Ben, since he completed 5th grade 18 months ago. Ben has dyslexia and is also mildly autistic. He found it extremely difficult to learn while attending elementary school.
Since working with Dedee three mornings each week, Ben, who could barely read when he began working with her, has improved his reading to such an extent that he is just about at grade level.
His writing, grammar, spelling and vocabulary skills have improved significantly as well. Ben is doing work my husband and I never thought he was capable of doing.
Dedee, for the first time, has given us hope for his future!
Because I have witnessed Dedee's incredible teaching skills and her ability to relate so easily to our teenage son, I strongly recommend her as a literacy specialist for middle-school-aged students.
- Lisa Strid, Parent of home-schooled Middle School student
Dedee Lane is my literacy angel. She has been working with a student who entered my class with very low self-esteem and put forth very minimal effort. At that time, he was reading at a kindergarten level.
Since working with Dedee over the last several months, he is reading at second grade level and progressing every day in all subject areas. I believe that this is because Dedee taught him to believe in himself and showed him what an awesome learner he is.
He is truly a second grade star, and I have to hand it to Dedee because he wouldn't be where he is today without all of her hard work, dedication and love.
