About Laura

I am a certified Orton-Gillingham tutor with a degree in Education from the University of Akron. For the past 9 years I have been providing one-on-one remediation to elementary students with reading difficulties using the Orton-Gillingham multisensory approach. This approach is scientifically proven, phonetically based, sequential - and fun too! Each lesson employs auditory, visual, and kinesthetic pathways to enhance learning and memory. Using this approach gives your child the tools needed to persevere in their reading achievements.

When given the proper instruction students with reading difficulties can learn to read. My students with dyslexia have made immense progress and have improved self-esteem and confidence. I look forward to helping your child reach their reading goals.
