My Name is Julie McFadden and I am the fourth grade academic tutor at Kenston Intermediate School.  I look forward to working with your child to help boost specific reading and math skills.  In return, it is my hope that your child will become a more confident student.

I consider my support as “coaching”.  Entrance into the program is established through a set of criteria, including diagnostic assessments, informal assessments and teacher referral.  Services are flexible and may change based upon ongoing progress monitoring throughout the year.

“Coaching” will be provided in a small group setting.  I will work closely with your child’s classroom teacher to select the best times to meet.  I am also present in some fourth grade classrooms (during language arts blocks) for assistance.

My goal is to help make this a positive and rewarding learning experience for you and your fourth grader!  If you have any questions, feel free to email me at
