Lucy @ Speaking of Language

I have several years' experience working with dyslexic students of all ages. My undergraduate education in communicative disorders, as well as my training toward certification in the Orton-Gillingham Approach (which is proven to work well with dyslexic students) have provided an excellent foundation. To work with students who have dyslexia, I use proven multi-sensory methods to teach phonics that include the following steps: - phonemic awareness: learning individual sounds and blending them into words - phoneme/grapheme correspondence: which sounds are represented by which letter(s)and how [more]

I recently (August, 2016) completed a full 6-day (40-hour) training in the Orton-Gillingham approach, which is one of the oldest and most effective interventions available to students identified to have reading challenges. Learning is an energetic and organized process that should leave room for fun. I like to help students of almost an [more]

Versatile Tutor with Experience

Working as a private tutor, I have gained experience with several students diagnosed with dyslexia. Because of the unique frustrations that come with this diagnosis, I have become adept at reducing students' worries and helping them become more confident and independent in their learning abilities. I have also done well with encouraging students to take advantage of accommodations to help ease the issues involved in having dyslexia. I am a current second year PhD student in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Missouri. I obtained my Master of Arts degree in November 2017 in Cl [more]

PreK - Elementary Reading, Math, Handwriting, Study Skills

I taught in a Reading Clinic, a group of sixth graders who read at a second grade level. I found books that met both their interest level and reading level. I planned lessons that activated their various sensory avenues and was very successful. I have also learned how to use Brain Gym to activate both sides of the brain. They are very simple exercises and take very little time to do, such as Lazy 8's, cross crawl, Brain Buttons, and so forth. I also utilize the Learning Breakthrough Program from Balametrics, Inc. and have a CD and instructional booklet for "Catch a Brain Wave Fitness Fun. [more]

Kind tutor who wants to make learning fun!

I have a decade of experience teaching children with various learning disabilities, including dyslexia, how to read. I have lots of fun with the children breaking down the sounds and learn the "rules" of reading. I've been using letter tiles for about 5 years now. I've also attended online trainings about dyslexia and the Orton-Gillingham approach. I have been successfully using a curriculum based on this approach with a middle school student. Gradually, we have seen her reduce word guessing and increase her decoding skills. [more]
