Using the Orton Gillingham method and the Barton Reading & Spelling System, I am a private dyslexia specialist providing specific instruction for students who struggle with reading (K-12).  Students begin at their own skill level, but typically, students start in Level 1 or Level 2 to ensure that they have a solid knowledge of phonemes. The components of this proven method is multi-sensory and  includes systematic and explicit instruction in phonemic awareness, decoding (reading by sounding out), reading fluency and comprehension, spelling and spelling rules.

Students with dyslexia can significantly improve their reading and spelling skills when they are taught differently (using an Orton-Gillingham method).  As a dyslexia tutor, my reading intervention is customized lesson for each student by building skills that make sense to them -- a logical way that requires very little memorization.  With this training, students can succeed in school and use these reading skills as the gateway to all learning.  

Dyslexia and dyslexia tutoring do not have to be intimidating.  I am compassionate about teaching dyslexic students, I want to empower your child to feel confident in the classroom while having fun during our private sessions.
