Balanced Literacy is the foundation from which QTI instructional methods are built

Literacy Support

Reading, writing, and word study support is the basis from which all QTI tutoring sessions will come from. We strive to build confident, proficient, life long readers through explicit skill instruction to reinforce: accuracy, fluency, and comprehension.

Life Coaching

While academics are often the priority for parents and teachers, often overlooked are executive functioning skills. These are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully.

Spanish Instruction

QTI owner and operator Jesse Howe is a second language learner of Spanish, and knows firsthand the pitfalls of language learning. Through many years living in Latin America he has gained a near native fluency and enjoys teaching students ages 5- 95 how to do the same.

Parents frequently ask if a literacy tutor is worth the expense. As you can see below from a few testimonials from satisfied parents, the answer is an unequivocal yes!


Jesse is fabulous. My 11yo son has made significant spelling improvement over the summer. Jesse took the time to get to know C and relate to him through mutual interests. He quickly determined his strengths and weaknesses and worked on his needs while building his confidence. C learned and applied spelling patterns in his reading and writing. He has always been reluctant to work on reading and spelling, however, C was always willing to work with Jesse. In fact, I’d even say he enjoyed it ;). Thanks Jesse!
