Bio

I am a certified Orton Gillingham tutor. I specialize in teaching children with language based learning disabilities. The Orton Gillingham method is a multi-sensory method that teaches children how to read. I love to learn how kids think so I can customize the lessons so the kids learn the way that's best for them. Kids learn through games and activities that help them to incorporate language skills into all facets of learning. I am also a certified Handwriting Without Tears instructor....

I am a certified Orton Gillingham tutor. I specialize in teaching children with language based learning disabilities. The Orton Gillingham method is a multi-sensory method that teaches children how to read. I love to learn how kids think so I can customize the lessons so the kids learn the way that's best for them. Kids learn through games and activities that help them to incorporate language skills into all facets of learning. I am also a certified Handwriting Without Tears instructor. So I can help your Dysgraphic student too.

I am also qualified to tutor your student in all of his or her K through 8th grade subjects, including all aspects of English, grammar, phonics, vocabulary and writing; as well as math and science. I work frequently as a substitute teacher at a school for children with Dyslexia, ADHD, and other language disabilities.

Personally I have 4 children, 2 of whom have learning differences. I homeschooled 3 of my children through middle school, two of whom are currently high school now and receiving quarterly honors for their excellent grades. Please check out my profile and see how I can help your child love to learn!

I am available some mornings by special request in the summer.

Handwriting

In the Fall of 2013 I completed the Handwriting without Tears K-through 5th workshop. In the workshop teachers are trained to use multisensory strategies, lessons, and practical ideas to teach printing and cursive skills that promote a love of writing. Teachers are also taught to recognize common handwriting problems and apply simple, effective remediation techniques. Using these techniques and specialized manipulatives I am able to help students to learn to write or improve their writing.

Patient and makes the sessions fun!

So Far this summer, my daughter has enjoyed her tutoring with Regina. She is very patient with her and has made her sessions "fun". I look forward to working with her into the school year so that my daughter will have less struggles in middle school.
