Although I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach, I primarily use Structured Word Inquiry which is helpful for students who are struggling with spelling as well as reading. The SWI process is s descriptive approach of student discovery that is engaging and motivating for students. I use a multi-sensory, explicit and structured approach to literacy and math.

I am an Educational Therapist specializing in working with students with dyslexia. Although I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach, I primarily use Structured Word Inquiry which is helpful for students who are struggling with spelling as well as reading. The SWI process is s descriptive approach of student discovery that is engaging and motivating for students. I use a multi-sensory, explicit and structured approach to literacy and math. I am trained by the Dyslexia Training Institute, as well as LEX and Real Spelling. I have also taken the Making Math Real classes of 9 lines (for multiplication) and 4 Operations (for addition/subtraction and long division).

I have a Master's degree in psychology and have worked with children for over 20 years. I can work with children of all ages. I have experience working with students who also have ADHD.

I have studied with a linguist on how the writing system works, including morphology and etymology. Have studied how Latin, Greek, Old English and French have influence our spelling. Have an understanding of how silent letters can be explained through etymology, the word's story through time. Able to explain the English writing system rationally so that it doesn't sound "crazy."

Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

I have had training in ADHD and executive functioning (EF). I've had training in educational scaffolding to assist with focusing, organization, reduced impulsivity, motivation and emotional regulation.
Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

I am trained in the Orton Gillingham (OG) approach by the Dyslexia Training Institute, which has the leading research for teaching reading and spelling with those with dyslexia. My training allows me to develop an individualize lesson plan for your student, rather than a scripted curriculum. This approach allows interventions to be targeted to a student's needs, which keeps the student interested and progressing at each lesson. I am also trained in Structured Word Inquiry, which focuses on spelling. It is a wonderful approach to learning spelling which focuses on the dyslexic student's strength of reasoning rather than the weakness of phonics.

Knowledgeable and expert tutoring for Dyslexic students

Structured Word Inquiry is an excellent way to approach spelling and improve reading skills. We are excited to have found a trained instructor with a broad scope of training for dyslexia. My son completed Wilson and SWI was the logical next step to remediate his spelling and reading deficits.
