Hello. My name is Mary, and I am a teacher at a 5 Star public school. * I am an Orton Gillingham trained instructor with many success stories working with dyslexic students. * After extensive summer tutoring, all of my dyslexic students (grades 1- 3) have shown gains in their FAST scores from the previous spring to fall. * If your dyslexic child is motivated to make huge gains this summer, please consider me as your tutor. * Individualized approach. * No contracts. Flexible scheduling. *... [more]
I hold a B.A. in communications and a law degree from Hamline University School of law. I have two courses left (taking this summer session) to fulfill requirements for a second bachelor's in elementary education. I have tutored Continental Math for accelerated math students and K-5 subjects for at-level and below level students.
I am qualified to teach phonics because I have completed 80 hours of Level 1 and Level 2 training through Orton-Gillingham of MN. This training included observation by a master Orton-Gillingham trainer during a practicum. I also have experience using the phonics PRESS interventions through my school. Currently, I am a 1st - 4th Grade Reading Interventionist at a public school.
