About Gina

I am a certified Reading Specialist who has been trained in Reading Recovery and Orton-Gillingham. I have been teaching reading to students of all ages for 16 years. I teach reading at an Elementary School in Milford, CT. I greatly enjoy working with emergent readers and watching them build and enhance their foundationAL skills.

I was a high school English teacher for many years and taught a variety of subjects such as Mythology, British and American Literature, Writing, and Vocabulary and Semantics. I have been trained in Orton-Gillingham and currently use Fountas and Pinnel's Phonics for targeted intervention groups.

I use what students know to help them construct new words.

I look forward to helping students develop not only their skills but also their confidence. I believe all students have the tools to get there, and I hope to help them use these tools.

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