About Grace


Bio

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!

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!

Best tutor ever

After a lifetime of not being able to read because of my dyslexia, found Graciela and a little over a year and am reading still have a lot to learn but it is going well. Patient, understanding and accommodating

Patient and effective tutor

Graciela has been tutoring my daughter for 1.5 years and has made such an impact on her reading. I noticed my daughter struggled with reading in the 1st grade, but by the time she was in 2nd grade she was far behind the class. I hired Graciela as a tutor at that point and I have seen such a remarkable improvement in my daughter reading. She went into 3rd grade reading at a 2.6 and is now reading at a 4.5 mid school year. Graciela is now helping my 4 year old prepare for kindergarten. They enjoy working with her very much! She is more than a tutor to my daughter she is like a family friend. I highly recommend Graciela as a tutor.

Great Online Experience

Grace is terrific. She is engaging, patient and most of all fun! My son enjoys working with her. He is learning about new words in a manner that makes sense to him. I would highly recommend Grace without hesitation.

Very kind tutor and well structured program

Grace has been such a pleasure to work with! As a certified Barton System tutor she takes great care in helping our daughter decipher language working with her dyslexia. I really appreciate the explicit instruction that is specifically geared to help students with reading and spelling difficulties. Having a tutor that follows a curriculum to progress is very reassuring, making it easy to track results. Grace has been a perfect addition to our daughter's education. We are so lucky to be able to work with her even being so far from each other. We live in NY and our daughter is able to meet with Grace online while she is all the way in California! While our daughter continues to move forward at school Grace carefully guides her in working with all the complex rules of language after school. The work they do together supplements and reinforces her learning without holding her back. I know it is working because when we ask our daughter what they did in their session she speaks about the topics they are reading about and not just the rules and strategies. To her, Grace's instruction has become a natural process of reading. And that is the most amazing thing to see from a kid who started off with an apparent "allergy" to the printed word! We continue to work with Grace seeing our daughter immersed in reading and it's a great thing to see!

Excellent

My daughter has been tutoring with Graciela for the past month. We have already noticed a level of confidence when it comes to reading that she didn't have before. It is amazing to watch her begin to enjoy our reading time rather than dread it. My daughter looks forward to each session. Graciela brings a level of care balanced with professionalism to each session. I highly recommend her as a tutor.
