Orton Gillingham Associate level training (Enrolled)
I am an Orton Gillingham (OG) Reading Tutor and have attended the OG program at St. John's University School of Education program for students with learning disabilities in Queens. Also I have attended an Associate program of OG in Brooklyn. Orton Gillingham is a multisensory program for mastery in reading, spelling and handwriting. This includes an evaluation of reading and spelling skills and an individualized lesson plan that addresses the student's needs in these areas. Individual letter symbols and their corresponding sounds are used in visual, auditory, tactile and kinesthetic modalities. I will work with your child to discover his/her strengths and weaknesses and formulate a plan that will provide the tools to be a confident reader. I look forward to meeting with you and your child to assess his or her reading abilities.

Students will be sent a text the day before to confirm the lesson. Cancellations via text messages should be followed up with a phone call if not confirmed via text by the tutor.
Regina is a true professional. Her knowledge of the material is top notch. It is refreshing to see someone truly care about what they do and the people they are trying to help. All positive so far!
I like Regina because she is very patient and being a mother herself, I feel she understands my concerns as well as my child's. My daughter is very comfortable with her. I totally recommend her!!
Regina has been working with my little one for a few months now and has been instrumental in her progress in reading and writing. She is extremely patient and flexible and because of this can easily engage my daughter during their lessons. She also always provides me with feedback after every lesson and is willing to discuss any questions or concerns I have. Overall, Regina is truly a blessing and we are grateful to have found her!
My daughter has problem with reading, and in seven lessons with Regina she got 2 levels up, very very impressed by her teaching methods. Regina is a very responsible and patient tutor.
Regina has been working with my 8 year old son for several months now and he really enjoys his sessions with her. She is very calm and patient and he likes the multi-sensory approach!
After each session, she is very thorough and gives me a recap of what they worked on that day as well as the plan moving forward.
Regina has been an excellent tutor for our daughter. She is very patient and adjusts each session to meet our daughters needs. Would highly recommend.
We have been working with Regina for several months now and she is a delight. She is friendly, responsible and very patient with my 8-year-old who is both Dyslexic and has ADHD. My daughter is progressing nicely with her reading thanks to Regina's commitment and diligence.
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.
I have studied the Orton Gillingham method for tutoring students with dyslexia. I have six graduate credits from St. John's University in Queens, NY in educational counseling focusing on the Orton Gillingham course. A second Orton Gillingham course was with a private Orton Fellow who is affiliated with St. John's in Staten Island, NY. During this time, I have successfully tutored two students who were not able to read, and they have been progressing well following the tutoring sessions.
I have completed two full courses in Orton Gillingham, a phonics based method. Using this method, phonemes or all of the sounds of the English language are studied along with their corresponding graphemes using multisensory means. Mastery of all of the sounds and their letters is utilized in this approach. This program has equipped me with the tools to teach reading on the fundamental levels to students while eliminating the gaps that they may have in learning.
I am an Orton Gillingham trained grad student. Orton Gillingham is a course that focuses on reading and writing difficulties. Utilizing this method, I have successfully taught reading to students who could not read. I patiently teach them the sounds and letters of the English language utilizing multisensory modalities and special education techniques.
