Tutoring Application

Thanks for your interest in Academic and Dyslexia Tutoring. We use the Orton-Gillingham Barton Method for tutoring students with symptons of dyslexia.

Please fill out this application and we will notify you of the next steps. Please note, a $25 non-refundable application fee is required for submission of all applications.

  • As parents and prospective tutoring students, we agree to abide by the rules of Wellmont Academy.
  • We agree to pay $55/hour to Wellmont Academy for our child’s Barton tuition, monthly, on the first of each month, through FACTS. We understand that there is an annual fee of $50 payable to FACTS in order to use this service if our family is not already using the service for our regular Wellmont Academy tuition payments. We understand that tutoring will cease if not paid for by the 3rd unpaid session of the month. We also understand that at any time, for any reason, Wellmont Academy may choose to terminate our student’s enrollment in Barton tutoring, making all payments and fees non-refundable if they see fit.
  • We agree that consistency in attendance is critical to achieving growth. We agree that make-up sessions will be offered for missed appointments by our tutor when 24 hours notice is given for sickness or a missed session. Make-up sessions will be offered according to the availability of the tutor. Missed sessions will not be refunded unless the tutor cancels and cannot offer a makeup session. Excessive cancellations without makeup sessions may result in the termination of services for your student.
  • Siblings of the tutoring student are not allowed to attend sessions, nor are siblings to be left without a parent on campus. Parents and siblings may wait together in the Administrative Office for sessions to be completed if the office is open. Students are not to be dropped off early or picked up late from sessions, as we cannot be responsible for the supervision of your child outside of their appointment time. Please notify our office if there are changes regarding the person picking up your student.
  • We agree that because Barton tutoring is based on the consistent repetition of material, summer attendance is also a necessity. Wellmont Academy will provide at least 6 weeks of summer tutoring, which is necessary to your child’s retention of the material. Scheduling can be worked out with your tutor to maximize summer memory retention and allow for vacations.
  • I agree that my student’s photo may be posted on the Wellmont Academy Facebook and Instagram sites for the purpose of celebrating accomplishment or promoting Barton services. I understand that their name and age will NOT be posted.
  • We understand that Wellmont Academy’s Barton tutors do not complete diagnostic tests, nor do they participate in advocacy work, or attend IEP or 504 meetings. They do not consult with or contact a student’s teachers or other extended relatives except by special arrangement and for an agreed upon fee.
  • If you wish to discontinue Barton Services, two weeks written notice is required.
  • Evaluation Included

    This application includes a free Barton evaluation to determine Barton placement.
