My name is Lindsay Lesch and I am proud to be the owner and primary tutor for Academic Ascents, LLC.
Originally from Maine, I enjoyed spending time at the many lakes, on the ocean, and atop the snow-capped mountains. After graduating from the University of Maine at Farmington, where I earned a B.S. in Special Education, I pursued my certification as an Orton-Gillingham tutor. I have been working with students in a school setting, summer camps, and as a private tutor for over ten years. I am certified as a Dyslexia Practitioner through the International Dyslexia Association and have earned her Masters Certificate in Dyslexia Studies and Language-Based Learning Disabilities from Southern New Hampshire University.
In addition to my tutoring endeavors, I have seven years of teaching experience as a Special Education teacher. I am dually certified as both a Special Education Generalist (Ages 5-21) and as an Elementary Education Teacher (Grades K-6) My passion is to help every student experience success, especially in academic areas that are challenging. By working with every student to help them identify their individual learning strengths and needs, I empower students to maintain a positive perspective despite the challenges they face in school. Additionally, I enjoy hosting workshops for parents, teachers, and community members to develop a greater awareness of Dyslexia in the schools and community.
