Retired Elementary School Teacher Available for Tutoring

During my 35 year career as a classroom teacher, I worked with students exhibiting signs of dyslexia in the regular classroom (mainstreamed), in Special Education classrooms and as a Learning Handicapped tutor for mainstreamed students in a public school setting. Dyslexia is often seen in young children who are reversing letters and numbers. Some of the techniques I've used are: 1. Having children use large muscle movements to "write" letters and numbers. 2. Having students practice writing letters and number using crayons, chalk, water and paintbrush and even tracing numbers and letters [more]

Anne - Passion For Tutoring People With Dyslexia

I was trained in the Barton tutoring program for people with dyslexia and related reading difficulties. It employs the Orton-Gillingham research and teaching methods. I successfully tutored a seventh grade student at a middle school last year. He won the award for 'the most improved student of the year.' He got A's on all the exams I prepared him for in his language arts class that used the Orton Gillingham method. On the last few tests he scored 100%! I have all six sets of lessons from the Barton tutoring program. [more]

Experienced Educational Specialist

As a resource specialist I worked with many children with "dyslexia". Dyslexia is a medical term, which we were not permitted to diagnose in our school district. An umbrella term for a low reader, it is characterized by a lack of fluency, omitting and substituting letters in words, omitting "small" words (in, then, the etc.), forgetting a word which has previously been decoded and skipping lines of text. The reader often has the sense that words are moving on the page. Children with dyslexia need systematic, sequential and frequent periods of reading instruction. often text needs to be enlarg [more]
