About Grace

My first student was my severely dyslexic sister who was in 8th grade reading at 1st grade level. For years teachers told me she needed to read more and she was eventually catch up. Nothing worked until I found the Orton-Gillingham method. Not only is she able to read now but she is addicted to a series of novels!

I am trained and certified in the Barton System which one of the most comprehensive Orton-Gillingham based programs. The Orton-Gillingham method is the golden standard in teaching reading to children and adults with dyslexia. I have taken Lindamood-Bell's Lips training workshop on phonemic awareness for my most severely dyslexic students. I have also taken Susan Barton's 6-day graduate level Screening for Dyslexia seminar.

In addition to my O.G.-based training, I have taken countless Linguistics and Structured Word Inquiry courses to expose my students to a scientific approach to orthography. Every word has a story and meaningful reasons for the way it is spelled, even so-called "sight words!" Using SWI, students use critical thinking, expand their vocabulary, and improve reading comprehension.

Signs of Dyslexia:
- Terrible spelling (Number 1 sign of Dyslexia)
- Unable to sound out unknown words or nonsense words
- Unable to retain spelling words from spelling tests
- Slow choppy reading
- Relies on context clues when reading
- Makes guesses when reading

I tutor all students (ages 6 to adult) online using a screen sharing software. My hourly rate applies to 55-minute sessions.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Very Patient! Excellent Tutor!

Hiring Graciela has been the best experience and best decision I made. My daughter was struggling with reading and writing she was behind in her class. Now she is above her reading level and she is at the top of her class. If your child suffers from dyslexia, don't hesitate to hire Graciela she is an exceptional, patient and passionate tutor and always goes the extra mile.
