Offering intervention for reading, writing, and spelling
in-person or online
The mission of Pathway to Reading is to deliver the highest quality learning experience for children who struggle with reading, writing and spelling. PTR lessons are personalized to the specific needs of each student with the aim of getting them to grade-level reading as quickly as possible.
I believe all students deserve compassion, understanding, and the most current, effective evidence-based intervention available. It is my goal to help all students reach their academic potential. Sometimes success simply requires a different approach; a structured, explicit and multisensory approach where early diagnosis and intervention are critical.

ABOUT MARY JANE MARTIN M.Ed. (READING)
I am especially passionate about providing quality reading and writing instruction. I target individual needs with personalized, fun, and meaningful sessions rooted in evidence-based instructional practices. I love supporting children and families on their language/literacy journey! It is so fulfilling to help unlock a student’s ability in achieving literacy goals and building success.
Structured Literacy is distinctive in the principles that guide how critical elements are taught.
This approach is characterized by the provision of systematic, explicit and diagnostic instruction that integrates listening, speaking, reading and writing. Structured Literacy emphasizes the structure of language across the speech sound system (phonology), the writing system (orthography), the structure of sentences (syntax), the meaningful parts of words (morphology), the relationships among words (semantics), and the organization of spoken and written discourse.
Systematic and Cumulative
Structured Literacy instruction is systematic and cumulative. Systematic means that the organization of material follows the logical order of the language. The sequence must begin with the easiest and most basic concepts and elements and progress methodically to more difficult concepts and elements. Cumulative means each step must be based on concepts previously learned.
Structured Literacy individualizes instruction and meets a student’s needs. The instruction is based on careful and continuous assessment, both informally (for example, observation) and formally. The content presented must be mastered to the degree of automaticity. Automaticity is critical to freeing all the student’s attention and cognitive resources for comprehension and expression.
