I specialize in basic reading instruction for struggling readers including those with dyslexia. I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach and have over ten years experience teaching elementary and middle school students. I have recently added Pre-K5/kindergarten readiness to my resume. The O-G approach is a phonics based, multisensory, proven approach to teaching reading, spelling, and writing. It is specifically designed to meet the needs of dyslexic students and other struggling readers. I am trained in Project Read (a compatible program) as well. I use materials from SPIRE, All About Reading, and other compatible sources.

I also tutor math for the elementary grades. Whether I'm teaching a child math or reading skills, I strive to include interactive methods and learning games to engage the child's interest. I have plenty of experience working successfully with students with attention deficits. I use an individualized reward system to motivate each child.

Sentence and paragraph composition are included in the curriculum. Spelling instruction includes sound spelling, spelling rules, and irregularly spelled sight words. I use fun mnemonics for most short but difficult sight words (i.e., "Want has a little ant in it"). Handwriting and cursive instruction may be provided upon request. Vocabulary growth is emphasized in reading lessons.

I assess each student's needs and individualize the instruction of math skills. I utilize manipulatives for hands-on learning, use mnemonics (memory aids) for mastering math facts.

Direct, step-by-step instruction, practice to mastery, and continuous review of phonetic concepts are the cornerstone of successful phonics instruction. Instruction in the basic syllable types and syllable cutting patterns helps dyslexic readers 'break the code' of sounding out words of all sizes.

I have completed a 2-week training course and a practicum in the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading instruction for dyslexic and struggling readers. My practicum included 10 tutoring sessions observed by a certified O-G senior fellow. I have 5 years experience tutoring dozens of students in the phonics based O-G program. I also have a week or more of in-service training in the Project Read approach, a phonics based offshoot of Orton-Gillingham.

Knowledgeable and very patient tutor.

Ms. Yvonne is so patient and very knowledgeable. She really makes learning fun. My son looks forward to his weekly tutoring session with Ms. Yvonne. She is highly recommended.

Valencia , 4 lessons with Yvonne

Great experience with Results

She is very patient and understanding, but also effective. Over 3 months of tutoring with Mrs. Jones, my daughter’s test scores have improved and she now shows an interest in reading. My daughter looks forward to her sessionsand is not as apprehensive about reasons as she once was. I’m happy that I chose Mrs. Jones to help my daughter work through her reading challenges.

Excellent Tutor

Yvonne is extremely patient with my 11 year old son who is dyslexic. She is able to keep his attention by using interactive learning methods. He enjoys his time with her. I will be using her on a regular basis and would highly recommend her to others!

Beth, 7 lessons with Yvonne

Works very well with children

Uses different techniques to build my daughter's handwriting skills, also showed me a few things that I could do differently to help her learn. Very pleased with the lesson, look forward to more lessons in the future!
