About Regina

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.

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.

Dyslexia

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.

Phonics

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.

Reading

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.
