Overview of the Orton-Gillingham Approach
The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a scientific, evidence-based, appropriate, structured, multi-sensory, spiraling, scaffolding and prescriptive way to teach literacy to students when reading, writing, and spelling are challenging. It was designed to remediate students with Dyslexia but can be used to teach any child to effectively read, write, and spell. It was developed in the 1930's by Anna Gillingham and Samuel Orton. This approach to reading has been proven effective for all readers whether typical or atypical. Using this approach, students build confidence and gain the tools and strategies needed to become successful readers.Read more about the Orton-Gillingham Approach
Wilson Reading System
The Wilson Reading System is a structured literacy program based on phonological-coding research and Orton Gillingham principles. The Wilson Reading System directly and systematically teaches the structure of the English language. Through the program, students learn fluent decoding and encoding skills to the level of mastery. The Wilson Reading System is designed for students from second grade up to adulthood and can be conducted one-on-one or in a group setting. Students who have deficiencies in phonological awareness and/or orthographic processing benefit from this type of program.
The Lindamood-Bell® Program
We offer various Lindamood-Bell® programs including the Visualizing & Verbalizing® program, Talkies® program, and the LiPs® program. Lindamood-Bell® programs focus on the sensory-cognitive processing necessary for reading and comprehension and teaches students to integrate sensory information to help them develop their language and literacy skills. Lindamood-Bell® programs can effectively help individuals from pre-kindergarten through adulthood by developing language processing that is critical to becoming a proficient learner. Lindamood-Bell® programs develop the imagery-language foundation necessary for reading, comprehension, and math.
How We Do Math Differently
Say goodbye to those traditional methods that have not been working. At Jamie The Tutor, your child will be exposed to new ways that make learning math fun and exciting. Does your child know their math facts but struggles with word problems and computation? Is your child struggling to remember concepts, math facts and formulas? Is your child struggling to remember the rules and steps to effectively solve math problems? Math does not have to be taught only using abstract techniques. Using a multi-sensory based approach while teaching mathematics sets students up for independence when completing math tasks. Our math experts are ready to change your child’s life.
