    My daughter has grown in skill and confidence over the past year and a half that we have been with Symbols. Our tutor Melanie and all … More the staff we have met in our time at the centre have been warm, welcoming and friendly. The reporting and payment systems are clear and helpful for sharing our progress with our school. We are very glad to have found Symbols!

    My son has attended Symbols (Coquitlam) for approx 3 years now, specifically for their Orton-Gillingham teaching method, and has progressed … More significantly relative to when he first enrolled and initially assessed. He started out barely able to read even simple words, diagnosed as being two grade levels behind his peers, and feeling extremely unconfident in his reading ability to now being an avid reader of chapter style books. Currently he is now moving on to improve upon his writing skills.He has been with four different tutors during this time and all have been very caring, focused, and genuinely wanting to help the student improve and progress further. My son is not particularly keen on public school but he actually enjoys attending the tutoring lessons once weekly at Symbols. That says a lot!

    My son has been at Symbols for three years for writing and reading. He really enjoys being tutored by Alana. She's warm, smart … More and makes it fun for him. Im so glad I found this place because it has helped my son with his reading tremendously!

    Super impressed! Our tutor (Dana) is very thorough and efficient as she provides a recap of each session as well as outlining homework … More (in person and by email). The teaching techniques are structured to be fun and enjoyable as well, so kids actually look forward to attending. Well worth the investment!

    My son who is 9 and in grade 4 has been receiving help with his written output disorder (dysgraphia) for the last 4 months and I am … More blown away by the gains my son has made! Things I have worked on with him for the last couple years and have not worked they have got him rolling with in such a very short time. My son not only looks forward to going in the 2 days a week he attends but asks for extra homework to take home! Thank you Symbols! Highly recommend!

    Both my daughters have been helped immensely with their spelling and reading comprehension. My girls have gone from below grade level … More to honour roll. My oldest daughter told me after her first session that it was the first time a teacher understood her. I can’t thank Symbols enough!
