About Janet

I am trained to work specifically with students with dyslexia in the Orton- Gillingham method to help students break the "code" of reading and spelling. I have had training in both Basic and Advanced levels of this method. This is a multi- sensory, sequential and repetitive approach to provide skills needed to read well.

Therefore, your child's lesson is specific to your child's assessed needs and not just the next lesson in a program. Phonemic awareness, fluency and sight word automaticity, comprehension, and handwriting skills may also be a part of the lesson.

I use materials that are child centered and engaging and always employ a "game" to reinforce learning and make the lesson fun.

For older students or students on a higher intellectual level, i interweave morphology such as Latin roots, prefixes and suffixes to give meaning to words when working on comprehension.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Dyslexia

I have been trained in the Orton-Gillingham teaching method with over 20 years of experience of on-to-one remediation.

I have received training in both Basic and Advanced levels of OG technique of teaching reading and spelling in a multi sensory, systematic, and a sequential approach.
I incorporate morphology (prefixes, suffixes and roots) for better comprehension.
I also teach writing strategies to help students better express their thoughts on paper, and can teach cursive writing if appropriate.
I have a BS in Speech and Hearing Communication from Miami University.

Grammar

I teach sequential grammar skills including parts of speech and morphology (prefixes, suffixed and roots and their meanings). I also teach the acronym C.O.P.S. (capitalization, omitting words, punctuation, spelling) to help students assess the correctness of written sentences. Students also learn to construct various types of paragraphs, to best express their thoughts on paper

Handwriting

I teach correct pencil grip, and correct formation of printed or cursive letters in a multi sensory and sequential technique. I use various sizes of lined paper depending on the ability of the student and group the letters into "families" so that students can remember their formation more easily.

Phonics

I have been trained in the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching reading and spelling. Phonemic awareness is an integral part in decoding (reading) and encoding (spelling) words. I do lots of phonemic awareness games and activities to help students think about the sounds of the word. From sounds we go to larger "chunks" of syllables or other morphology parts to help students decode or encode faster.

Reading

I have been trained in the Orton-Gillingham teaching method with over 20 years of one-to-one experience in remediation.
I have been trained in both Basic and Advanced levels of OG technique of teaching reading and spelling in multisensory, systematic, and sequential approach.
I also incorporate morphology (prefixes, suffixes and roots and their meanings) for better comprehension. I teach comprehension strategies and fluency skills if needed.
I have a BS in Speech and Hearing Communications from Miami University.

Spelling

I have been trained in the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching reading and spelling strategies and have over 20 years of experience helping students learn these strategies. I teach spelling in a sequential, multi sensory and structured approach, teaching the short vowel spelling generalizations first and progressing towards multiple spellings of long vowel sounds. I employ puzzles, manipulative, and games, so that students can learn strategies to be better spellers.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary assistance first requires decoding skills to read a word accurately. Mixing and matching words to meanings, making up stories and showing stories with Legos, is also a helpful technique to enable students to remember words for longer term. I have been trained in the Advanced level of Orton-Gillingham, so I also teach morphology (prefixes, suffixes and roots) and their meanings. These affixes help older students learn a great number of words in our language to provide comprehension clues.

Janet is very knowledgeable and organized with her sessions. She encourages my son and helps him build confidence. She does an assessment to find weaknesses and builds her plan individually. I highly recommend her!
