Englewood Tutoring Company Helps Thousands of Student

Dr. Emily Levy
Edna Dumas’ granddaughter used to get zeroes on her spelling tests. Now, the 6-year-old is getting A’s. In less than a month working with Dr. Emily Levy’s trained tutors throughout Bergen County, the first-grader no longer breaks into tears while writing her name on a worksheet because the words are transposed.
More than 6 million school-age children in the United States receive special education services. Almost half — some 2.4 million — are students identified with a specific learning disability. Close to home, approximately 200,000 children, aged 6-17, in New Jersey received special education in the fall of 2011, according to the U.S. Department of Education.

As the founder of EBL Coaching in Englewood, Dr. Levy has worked with more than a thousand children with behavioral disorders and learning disabilities – dyslexia, ADD, ADHD – in addition to students with poor study skills and reading, writing, and math challenges.

She started EBL Coaching in 2001 in New York and opened a New Jersey location in Englewood last year. Unlike other learning centers, EBL Coaching provides a one-on-one, multi-sensory approach with tools such as colored sand, magnetic tiles for hands-on learning and interactive white boards. Dr. Levy recognizes that there is no one size fits all approach to addressing children’s challenges and is trained in several methods. At EBL Coaching, she meets with each family for an initial assessment and then matches the child with a master-level learning specialist. She is in contact with the learning specialist on a weekly basis to check on the child’s progress. Dumas can attest to the program’s success. Kayla was in a previous program for more than a year and showed no progress. The teacher-to-student ratio there was 1 to 5. While still awaiting a specific diagnosis, she went ahead and enrolled her in the program. Dr. Levy has spoken at international conferences and served on education committees. Her Strategies for Study Success workbook series, which focuses on test taking, note taking and reading comprehension, is used in schools nationwide.
