Patient Dyslexia/ID Reading Tutor

I taught special education for 6 years and had many dyslexic students that were never able to read until they were exposed to multi-sensory structured phonics. Not only is multi-sensory very important but using hand motions for sounds and sight words are also very helpful. I have studied how reading programs work and have supplemented some with sight word programs that I have created myself. I also had many Intellectual Disabled students who greatly benefited from multi-sensory instruction and sight word practice. I use an Orton Gillingham, multi-sensory approach to reading with structured [more]

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]

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]

I have taught students with a range of learning disabilities, including those with reading disorders (Dyslexia). 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]

Enthuastic and knowledgable Special Education Teacher/Behavior/Autism

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]

Highly Effective Teacher seeks to create life-long learners

I hold a B.S. in Special Education and have about five years of experience working with students with language and communication disorders, including Dyslexia. I became interested in working with students with special needs when I was in high school; a summer spent volunteering at Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters in Norfolk, VA convinced me that this was my calling. Ever since, I've spent as much time as possible learning about the variety of different ways that disabilities can affect both life and learning. In college, I accepted as many teaching practica as I could: pre-K pre-l [more]
