Individualized reading instruction using Orton-Gillingham based instruction in an online format.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 6
Students will learn to read (decode words), build vocabulary knowledge, improve spelling and writing skills, and increase reading fluency.
Homework Offered
There will be no "assigned" homework, but I can share activities that caregivers have the option of using at home with their child to help improve their reading skills. In my experience, children who are immersed in literacy experiences (from school, home, and tutoring) make the most progress, and the combined efforts can even close the existing reading gap completely.
Assessments Offered
I use informal assessments to discover where to begin with a student, as well as for monitoring progress, and for making instructional decisions.
Grades Offered
Please have a piece of textured material in which the student can trace their finger over as needed (it can be fabric, textured paper, sandpaper, clay in a tray, etc.). This will be needed from time to time to assist with letter-reversal work and spelling.
The online "Whiteboard" app/function that we used for writing/spelling instruction was Jamboard (which is ending services in 2024); we are moving to a new writing platform called Miro.
