I have always struggled with reading. I was a dyslexic who never mastered phonics, yet I successfully compensated for my decoding and encoding weaknesses in school through memorization. During my junior year in college, I had to take a course in anatomy (with a lot of new multisyllabic words) and I knew these words were going to be very difficult for me to decode and memorize. I decided to do something about it and find a reading specialist.
I was unable to find a tutor who was willing to work with an adult, until I found Linda. Linda was so patient with me, and I felt that without Linda it would have been almost impossible for me to have succeeded in that course. With Linda’s help, I was able to receive a grade in my anatomy class that I was pleased with.
It was during our tutoring sessions that Linda introduced me to the kinesiology technique. It took me a little while to warm up to the idea, since kinesiology is an alternate technique that is “out of the box”. In hindsight, I feel a bit foolish that I waited at all. Kinesiology has helped me tremendously, not only with my reading but also with many aspects of my life. My memory just seemed to have naturally improved. I took my GRE exam for a second time after the kinesiology sessions, and my score increased by 200 points. Everything seemed to be easier after the completion of the kinesiology technique. I am currently pursuing my graduate degree.
