About Ilona

Hello, I am certified in three states K-6, Special Education, and Pre-school. I am certified in Orton Gillingham which is a multi-sensory reading program.

It helps students with dyslexia and students struggling with phonics and/or reading succeed. Orton Gillingham was used to develop programs such as Wilson and Read 180. I studied the program for two years about 6 hours a week through Farleigh Dickinson University. I taught students from age 5 to 16 how to read, write, and spell. The lessons are each written based on the mistakes your child makes, so it is not a package program. I will have to spend 40-80 minutes planning their lesson and about 60 minutes to implement the lesson.

I differentiate all of the lessons I plan when I am in the classroom and tutoring to make sure it is going to meet the child's needs. I enjoy teaching reading, writing, and mathematics by teaching students to use and apply different strategies. I have implemented many programs including Framing Your Thoughts, RAVE-O, Visualizing and Verbalizing, Orton Gillingham, Touch Math, and Investigations. I have experience in public and private schools in pre-school to middle school helping students with different educational needs. Please contact me with questions, I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Autism

I am highly qualified in Special Education in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. My first two years teaching I was at a private special education school working with students who had multiple disabilities including: aspergers and autism at the elementary level.

I helped create social skill events (gift exchange/luncheon) with a teacher who worked with students at the high school level. I instructed and implemented social skills lessons at least twice a week to teach basic social skills such as eye contact, turn taking, manners, and more. Over the summer I implemented discrete trails to children who were in preschool. I had experience in other school placements in self-contained classrooms and resource rooms as well as working with adults in a day program.

Dyslexia

I am certified in Orton Gillingham through Farleigh Dickinson University. Orton Gillingham is a multi-sensory reading program that inspired the creation of Wilson, which I was trained in last year. Orton Gillingham and Wilson are highly effective for students with dyslexia and struggling with reading. I have worked with students from ages 6-16 to work on their phonemes, spelling, reading, and writing. One student I worked with only knew 3 consonants and 1 short vowel, now he is reading fluently. I have implemented phonemes in one-on-one lessons for over two years. I have implemented group lessons in a classroom setting for 3 years.

Handwriting

I am highly qualified in Elementary Education (K-6th), Pre-school - 3rd grade, and Special Education in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. I am certified in Orton Gillingham and trained in the Wilson Reading system. I have a working knowledge of Handwriting without tears from working it into my lessons while students are writing in the classroom. My first two years teaching I was at a private special education school. Currently I am working with students who are having difficulty with reading, writing, and mathematics. I had experience in other school placements in self-contained classrooms and resource rooms as well.

Phonics

I am certified in Orton Gillingham through Farleigh Dickinson University after two years of studying. Orton Gillingham is a multi-sensory reading program that inspired the creation of Wilson, which I was trained in last year. I have implemented phonemes in one-on-one lessons and in a classroom setting. I have been teaching for three years and I also studied the whole-language approach in my undergraduate years.

Reading

I am Orton Gillingham Certified and Wilson trained.

Special Needs

I am highly qualified in Special Education in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. My first two years teaching I was at a private special-education school working with students who had multiple disabilities including: aspergers, autism, dyslexia, epilepsy, PDDNOS, ADD, ADHD, and cognitive impairments. I had experience in other school placements in self-contained classrooms and resource rooms as well.
