Specialized Tutoring Services

My primary focus is to provide explicit, structured, multisensory instruction, customized to meet the the specific learning needs of each individual. I use a multisensory approach that aligns with Orton Gillingham methodology. While this is ideal for individuals who have been diagnosed with dyslexia, my services may be beneficial for struggling readers and writers who lack a specific diagnosis. Read below to learn more about the different options I provide.

Playing with Letters

1

Get Ready to Read!

We can help our youngest learners prepare for reading success by developing phonological awareness skills. These sessions include well-designed, engaging, multisensory activities to help children accurately hear sounds within words. If appropriate, these sessions may include activities to support letter recognition as well.

Build Foundational Skills

These sessions focus heavily on foundational reading and writing skills through engaging, multisensory activities. The phonics instruction is explicit and aligned to a progression of skills. These sessions also include activities to reinforce phonemic awareness skills, as needed.

2

Beyond the Basics

These sessions are ideal for older readers (6th grade and beyond) who still need a review of foundational reading skills, but would benefit from more sophisticated learning content as well! These sessions include a review of phonics skills, along with instruction in Greek and Latin roots as well.

Professional Development

My primary goal is to help teachers become more knowledgable about the characteristics of dyslexia and ways they can help support dyslexic students in their classroom through instruction that aligns with structured literacy. I offer an interactive, workshop-style presentation in which teachers will immediately apply instructional practices and receive/create materials that can be carried back to their classrooms for use. Read below to learn more about the topics addressed in my professional development presentations.
