I'm Gina! I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary and Special Education. For the past 25 years, I have been working with special needs students in grades K-5. During this time, I have mastered the art of explicit instruction, use of visuals, frequent feedback, and effective use of positive reinforcement.

My extensive background in reading instruction includes Level 1 and Level 11 Wilson Reading Certification. To receive this certification, I completed comprehensive online word study courses, tutored both individual students and a group of 6 students, and had supervised lessons to demonstrate my ability to teach students using a multisensory structured language approach.

I have had the pleasure of working with both learning support and autistic support students for my entire teaching career. Currently, I am teaching autistic support students using the Verbal Behavior program. I have been able to greatly increase my students' communication skills using intensive one on one instruction on needed verbal operants (manding- requesting / tacting- labeling/ intraverbal- answering "wh" questions/ listener responding- following directons/ motor imitation- imitating fine and gross motor movements/ echoic- repeating sounds and words).

I would love to have the opportunity to work with your child. Through effective instruction coupled with varied reinforcement, I am confident that your child will make great academic growth. Please contact me to schedule your child's first session.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I currently teach autistic support students in grades 3rd-5th. Our classroom is part of the Autism Initiative Program. Intensive one on one teaching sessions that address needed verbal operants (manding- requesting/ tacting-labeling/ intraverbal- answering "wh" questions/ listener responding-following directions/ motor imitation- imitating fine and gross motor movements/ echoic- repeating sounds and words) are delivered to my students. In addition, I am trained in applied behavior analysis and know the major role that reinforcement has on my students' success.

Mrs. Murphy is an excellent tutor. My son did not know how to read and with a few lessons my son is reading now little by little. YES he is reading. She is amazing my son has ASD and she is very patient, now she is teaching him beginning sounds, blending words, and ending sounds plus much more she have taught him. thanks to her, he no longer has difficulty and he is very confident. I am very happy and glad that my son is working with her. I highly recommend her services.
