Orton Gillingham Tutoring

Orton Gillingham is a multi-sensory technique, respected as a highly successful approach to tutoring children who experience challenges with reading, writing and spelling.

The Orton Gillingham approach is most often associated with a one-on-one teacher-student instructional model. The Orton Gillingham approach always is focused upon the learning needs of the individual student. Students with learning difficulties need to master the same basic knowledge about language and its relationship to our writing system as any who seek to become competent readers and writers.

However, because of their challenges, they need more help than most people in sorting, recognizing, and organizing the English language. Language elements that others might acquire easily must be taught directly and systematically. Orton Gillingham explains the “how” and “why” behind reading and writing.

Our team of therapeutic tutors teaches literacy skills in a step-by- step, systematic, and sequential manner using the proven Orton Gillingham method. Your child will feel nurtured which will be reflected by a gain in self-esteem and confidence. We are confident that your child will learn to love to learn!

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers To Questions You May Have

My child is having difficulty in school. Should I have my child tested?

The more you know about how your child learns the better.

We recommend not putting off the tutoring while you wait for your child to be tested. If your child is already experiencing problems, then start tutoring right away.

The first hour of tutoring is a diagnostic where an Orton Gillingham tutor will identify areas your child needs specific help with.

If you would like more information about how to get your child tested please go to the Parent Resource section.

How long will it take for my child to get caught up?

How long it takes a student to catch up varies depending on the student’s learning speed, learning style, and how well they retain information.

Our tutors work at the fastest comfortable rate for their students. Students struggling to retain information will take longer to catch up. The individualized pace of our instruction, coupled with the multi-sensory methods we employ, ensures each student maximizes their learning potential, making for the quickest catch up period.

How fast students catch up also depends on how much tutoring they receive. We usually recommend students receive a minimum of two hours per week. Only one hour a week of tutoring is insufficient time to make real progress.

How can I support my child at home?

We often recommend sending review work home for children who have difficulty retaining information.

We do want to stress, however, that this is a choice and it is entirely up to you.
