Dyslexia

I have tutored reading for two years. I am trained in three Orton-Gillingham based teaching methods: Barton Reading and Spelling, Wilson Reading System and Lindamoode Bell LiPS phoneme sequencing program.

These multi-sensory teaching methods are specifically designed for students with dyslexia or suspected dyslexia.

I specialize in the Barton system. Tutoring follows a highly structured sequence. Students begin by building phonemic awareness and work through a logical sequence of mastery of the more than 40 phonemes and 70 graphemes in standard American English. Spelling rules, referred to as expectancies, are taught with mnemonics, songs or pictures to keep them accessible.

Phonics

I have tutored reading for two years. I am trained in three Orton-Gillingham based teaching methods: Barton Reading and Spelling, Wilson Reading System and Lindamoode Bell LiPS phoneme sequencing.

While designed for dyslexic students, multi-sensory teaching methods might be described ans "phonics on steroids." They each use phonics but guide a student through a systematic, logical sequence. The bells and whistles of an O-G based system enhance simple phonics and result in rapid learning for a student without dyslexia or other reading challenges. The LiPS system puts detailed attention on how the mouth, tongue and breath form each phoneme.

I specialize in the Barton System. Tutoring follows a highly structured sequence. Students begin by building phonemic awareness and work through a logical sequence of mastery of the more than 40 phonemes (sounds) and 70 graphemes (letter or letter sequence) in standard American English.

Reading

I am trained in three different Orton-Gillingham based multi-sensory reading programs: Barton, Wilson & LiPS. I have been tutoring reading for 3 years.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
