It’s All About Literacy . . .
Words™. . . that’s the name of the company.
But what’s it all about? It’s all about literacy, all about kids, all about families. Words are part and parcel of this effort, this goal, and the number one goal is to educate.
That’s what drives Kelly Lewis, founder and owner of Words™.
She wants to make sure every kid has an opportunity to learn, to understand, to grow . . .that’s the foundation she used in starting Words™.
Kelly Lewis, founder and owner of Words™
She had been in public and private education, teaching and serving as a reading and literacy coach. She decided to leave the public school sector because she wanted to reach and teach more kids and families.
Words™ is a two-fold operation. Kelly does consulting and she does intervention and instruction, where kids have trouble reading. She steps in and helps the kids; sometimes that means educating the parents and the rest of the family as to the best way to help the student.
She doesn’t work with pre-school children but works with parents to teach them how to train their kids at home and prepare them for pre-school and school. Parents learn what to look for, what to expect in schools, what questions to ask of the school system and their child’s teachers.
A native of Williamstown, Massachusetts, she moved to Redondo Beach when young. Later, she attended San Diego State. She received her teaching credential at National University then, after spending nine years in Chicago, she returned to San Diego county where she began her mission in life and founded Words™.
She has plenty of opportunity to exercise her teaching techniques as she has two children, almost five and seven years of age.
Her office is in Carlsbad, in the La Costa Town Center, at the corner of La Costa and El Camino. She offers 90 minute sessions in homes or for organizations; she has presented seminars to church groups, on board military bases and, of course, will tutor both in the home or in the center.
She teaches in both a group dynamic as well as one-on-one. Often, she finds ideas flow better in a groups setting. A group will never be more than five students at a time. Whether a group setting or one-on-one depends on the child. She measures what form of teaching would be best for the child.
