About Wendy

Hello parents and potential students. My name is Wendy. I am a Certified Wilson Reading Program Instructor and mom of two wonderful elementary aged students. I began my journey into the Wilson Program with a desire and dedication to help my oldest child, who is dyslexic, with his academic struggles, specifically with reading and spelling. Fascinated by the process (a very systematic and specifically structured program) and excited by my son's progress, I decided to work toward becoming Wilson Certified and tutoring other children who need help with reading.

I believe that all children can learn to read and with patience, practice, and even some fun I can help them reach their full potential. The progressive successes they will achieve with this program will build their self-confidence and self-esteem; I look forward to watching that happen for them!

I can provide a letter of recommendation from my Wilson Program Mentor/Trainer upon request.

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 am Level I Certified in the Wilson Reading System.

Based on Orton-Gillingham principles, WRS is a highly-structured remedial program that directly teaches the structure of the language to students and adults who have been unable to learn with other teaching strategies, or who may require multisensory language instruction due to language based disabilities such as Dyslexia.

Reading

What Do I Love About the Wilson Reading Program?

• Frequent change of pace and short time spent (3-5 minutes) in the lesson parts. This keeps everyone's interest and attention, while supporting robust learning and durable memory.
• Use of sound cards to teach concepts. Students see as well as hear the concepts you're teaching.
• Multiple opportunities throughout each lesson and methods for students to learn and practice each word type and concept, both in reading and spelling
• Extensive controlled text for students to practice what they are learning
Methods and materials that teach students to "see" critical word components, like vowels, digraphs, suffix endings, syllables (colored sound cards)
• Materials that keep students actively engaged and provide multiple opportunities to demonstrate and practice what they're learning
• Flexible progression that allows the teacher to customize instruction to the abilities of the students
• Tools to help kids stop the "guessing habit"
• Quick and simple assessment tool (charting)
• Reading and spelling are taught simultaneously, thereby reinforcing the learning of both
• Lesson planning flexibility that allows the teacher to customize the lesson to focus on the student's particular needs
• Hands-on, multisensory methods and materials that keep students engaged, and enhance the learning input from multiple sensory sources
