About Gail

My name is Gail, and I understand what your son or daughter is going through. As a child, I struggled with reading. It was really frustrating! I was fortunate to attend a private school with a great reading instructor. She taught me phonics and I learned to read. She was my reading instructor from fourth grade until mid junior year of high school. I not only learned to read in her class but I also began to believe in myself. I went on to graduate with a B.A. in sociology from the College of Saint Catherine.
This is why I am passionate about tutoring students who are dyslexic or need help with reading. I have made a career of teaching students who need academic support. I have been a special education paraprofessional with Saint Paul Public Schools for 10+ years. I have been tutoring students privately for 2 years. I am trained in Orton Gillingham level 1 and 2. I continue to grow as an Orton Gillingham Tutor through participating in professional development workshops at Orton Gillingham Specialists of Edina.

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.
