Bio

I am experienced and certified to teach English from kindergarten to college age students. I have trained in the Orton Gillingham approach to work with students with dyslexia. It all began when I went to China to teach. I spent 4 years teaching English and 2 years learning the Chinese language.

I am experienced and certified to teach English from kindergarten to college age students. I have trained in the Orton Gillingham approach to work with students with dyslexia. It all began when I went to China to teach. I spent 4 years teaching English and 2 years learning the Chinese language. Since then I have taught English at the community college level and for eight years have taught and trained K-12 teachers best practices in teaching in the public school system. After receiving a Montessori certification in 2012, I was a Lead Teacher in a Montessori Lower Elementary classroom for 4 years teaching 6 year old to 9 year old students.

Since training in the Orton Gillingham approach I have truly seen the best method in teaching students how to read through a multisensory approach. My current students have made great gains in reading through the systematic and multisensory approach of Orton Gillingham. The first session I will assess the student to see their strengths and areas of need. Then I will set up goals for the student that I go over with the parent. Once we start tutoring I give parents progress reports monthly as to what goals the student has reached and what areas they still need work. Once the student schedule is set up a 24 hour cancellation policy is in effect. You will need to cancel any session 24 hours in advance or will be charged for the time.

Dyslexia

I am qualified to tutor students with dyslexia because I have completed 80 hours of Associate Level Multi-sensory Structured Language Education Coursework for The Orton-Gillingham Approach for teaching reading, spelling, and writing. Plus, I have finished 60 hours of practicum work where I worked one-on-one tutoring a student throughout a school year and participated in observations by my practicum supervisor.

Great tutor

My son loves working with a Helen Mary. She’s on point, kind and firm. Already after two sessions we’ve seen an improvement.

Dyslexia Expert!!

Helen Mary has been a wonderful asset to my 15 year old daughter who struggles with reading due to dyslexia. She relates perfectly, and over the past few months have seen a vast improvement with my daughter's skill. Highly recommend!
