Genevieve is an academic and Orton-Gillingham (O-G) tutor. Her education includes a B.A. in Liberal Studies from California State University, San Marcos. She also holds a California Multiple Subject teaching credential with graduate studies in Special Education. In addition to O-G tutoring, Genevieve works with dyslexic and non-dyslexic students.
Genevieve uses a multi-sensory approach to help struggling readers, spellers, and writers to understand phonics, syllable division, spelling rules, and other concepts essential to reading and writing fluency.
Though she works with all ages, she has experience with middle and high schoolers who are beyond the typical age for O-G tutoring. These students often need both foundational phonics instruction as well as help in more advanced areas such as reading comprehension, essay writing, vocabulary-building morphology, and study skills.
Older students are sometimes particularly daunted by writing assignments. Just as O-G takes a step-by-step, systematic approach to phonics instruction, Katie follows these same principles when teaching higher-level skills, breaking them down into incremental steps and reviewing them until mastery. This approach can allow students to conquer their fear of writing and find a new voice as a writer and a new identity as a learner.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
