About Gretchen

I am a Maple Valley resident who has been teaching in and out of the classroom for over 25 years. I received my B.A. from North Park University in Chicago, IL., in Elementary Education & Psychology, way back in 1991. My most significant experience, however, comes from being a parent. I am married to Kenton, and we have 3 children, all with incredible diversity in learning styles. Believe me, I know firsthand what it is like to experience both the thrill of learning when something comes easy, and the struggle when a task comes with great difficulty. Strong reading skills are the foundational building blocks to almost all other learning. It is my aim to build and fortify reading and spelling skills (in a fun and exciting environment), so your child can feel able, accomplished, and confident as he/she tackles the years ahead in school.


OG is a multi-sensory structured approach to learning (or re-learning) the roots of reading/spelling. It can be a powerful tool for persons who have experienced language processing difficulties, especially those associated with dyslexia. I am a trained teacher and am offering engaging tutoring sessions to help your child soar, not struggle.

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 am a trained teacher (K-12) who has worked in and out of the classroom for over 20 years. I use the Orton Gillingham approach (Sonday System) in my tutoring sessions, which is multi-sensory and is quite helpful for processing difficulties common in Dyslexia. It is a structured and highly individualized approach to tutoring.

Phonics

I have over 20 years experience teaching phonics & reading to all ages in public school settings, private school settings, and one-on-one settings. While tutoring, I use the Orton-Gillingham approach, which is multi sensory, emphasizing the phonemic roots of reading and the English language. This approach can be a powerful tool for use with persons who have experienced language processing difficulties (reading, spelling, and writing) especially those associated with dyslexia. I have tutored students with a wide range of skill levels and am confident together we can bolster the long-term learning achievement!
