Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Phonics, Special Needs tutor

My name is Limor and I'm a certified and experienced English remediator. I specialize in the Hickey program, which is a special language technique for teaching dyslexics, developed by Kathleen Hickey and based on the Orton Gillingham approach. It is a highly structured, cumulative, phonic-based technique which incorporates multi sensory methods to optimize learning. It is suitable for any age range, widely used and has proven to be very successful. Your child would not only feel the improveme... [more]


Reading

As a Dyslexia tutor, I specialize in working with students who find it difficult to acquire literacy skills. I have 10 years' experience in working with students with reading difficulties, and I use a unique technique which is very structured, phonic-based (emphasis on decoding), and at the same time fun to work in and will add to your child's self esteem.


Spelling

As a Dyslexia tutor, I work with students who find it hard to acquire literacy skills. With the improvement of reading skills and decoding, writing skills and spelling also improve. I use a unique technique, which is phonics-based, that will help your child improve his/her spelling and writing.


Phonics

I am a certified English remediator and the technique I specialize in (The Hickey Program) is all about phonemic awareness (phonics). I will help your child acquire the skills he/she needs to decode (read) and encode (write) words. I have ten years' experience in tutoring phonics and have helped many students. I am very patient, I think outside the box, and I work with my students according to their needs no matter how long it takes. I believe every student wants to be good and deserves the chance to succeed.


Special Needs

I am a certified and experienced English remediator, and as such I am qualified to work with students with various learning disabilities and special needs such as dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, behavior/mood disorder, APD, speech/language delay, to name a few. I have 10 years' experience in working with students with LDs. I have also tutored students with APD and hearing impairment.


ADHD

I have first hand experience with ADD/ADHD as I have a 28 year old son with ADHD and have gone a long way to get him to where he is today. I am also a certified English Remediator, qualified to teach English to students with specific learning difficulties, and I have a tremendous amount of experience tutoring and coaching ADD/ADHD students. I also volunteered (for 4 years) in a non-profit organization in order to promote ADD awareness among parents and teachers. My in-depth study was on ADHD and its Management at Home and at School, with emphasis on the emotional aspect, the latter being my passion and the guideline in my work.


Dyslexia

I am a certified dyslexia tutor with 10+ years of hands-on experience. My certificate is accredited by the British Dyslexia Association, and it certifies me to work with students with different learning disabilities which go hand in hand with Dyslexia (ADD/ADHD, for example). I also have a BA in English Linguistics and Literature, Linguistics being my major. I use the Hickey Program as my anchor. It is a highly structured, phonic-based, multi-sensory program based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. I also use multi-disciplinary techniques, like neuro-cognitive techniques, techniques to strengthen auditory and visual skills, techniques to improve spelling and spelling memory, and more. I put a lot of emphasis on sound processing and on word and language structure. I work with what works best for my students and tailor the lessons accordingly. I believe this is the best way to go, as each student processes information in a different way and in a different pace. I try to make the lessons fun and use games and out of the box ideas to keep my students engaged and to optimize learning.
