I am the owner/director of Learn Joy Tutoring and a Dyslexia Specialist in Utah County. I am an experienced Barton Reading and Spelling System Tutor. I graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelor of Science Degree. I majored in Special Education and minored in Autism Studies. I have taught Life Skills Special Education at the High School level and I have taught Resource Special education at the Elementary School Level. 

I have an immense passion for helping students Learn Joy through their ability to read. There is nothing more exciting than seeing a student fall in love with the joy that comes from learning. I have decided to dedicate my life to creating light bulb moments for children. 

My whole life I have been drawn towards children, specifically children with special needs. I pride myself in my ability to connect with these individuals and for making a difference in their educational experiences. The Barton system has enabled me to make an outstanding difference in so many students lives. This program is phenomenally designed and extremely effective. My goal is to touch as many lives as I can, using the Barton Reading and Spelling system.

Tutor

I am a Barton Reading and Spelling System Tutor. I graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I just finished my student teaching in the 2nd grade and loved it! The best part was being able to help the students who struggled in reading find their confidence in reading and watch them progress. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing tutoring system and I can not wait to help more kids find confidence in reading. I'm excited to make a difference in each of my students lives.

MAKENNA TURNER

Tutor

I am a Barton reading and spelling tutor who is currently working on a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at Western Governors University! I also work as a Para-educator and a substitute teacher which allows me to see a wide variety of ages and learning levels every day. I have loved teaching and working with kids my entire life but have always had a special inclination to children with disabilities because I grew up with a cousin who is blind and has autism.
I am a firm believer that building up a child's confidence is the most important role of a teacher/tutor because it is a critical first step in creating a safe learning environment. Having confidence allows a child to believe they can learn more and ultimately, allows them to do so. I am so excited to use the Barton program while I get the special opportunity to tutor your kids and teach them new skills!

JESSICA BENNETT

Tutor

I am a Barton Reading and Spelling System tutor. I received my bachelors in Elementary Education at Brigham Young University, with a minor in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language). I have been teaching second grade the last few years, and have loved every moment. Watching children develop a love of reading, and feeling empowered to tackle new reading material is incredibly satisfying. There is no better feeling of pride than watching a child dive into a book and love it! I am committed to helping students discover their love of reading by making learning applicable to them. I cherish building relationships with students, and watching their excitement grow as their confidence does!
