Orton-Gillingham Approach

Working together to succeed!

 Literacy Together uses a variety of collaborative and interactive tools. I am able to provide students a truly immersive experience using multisensory and interactive lessons.  The students enjoy learning and I most definitely enjoy teaching them! As a result, students acquire the strategies needed to succeed in all areas of literacy.

I use a teaching approach called Orton-Gillingham. 

The approach is multi-sensory, direct, systematic, cumulative, and individualized to each student. It is most properly understood and practiced as an approach and not a curriculum. Orton-Gillingham has been scientifically proven to be effective for ALL students, and necessary for students with dyslexia.

Multisensory tutoring strategies make learning fun. Students should expect to play with their fingers in shaving cream, stand as they “stretch” their muscles to sound out words and use manipulatives to understand language and develop reading strategies. I teach the way kids learn best! Teaching students through this supportive approach strengthens multisensory associations and enables stronger channels of learning.  By using this approach, I train or retrain the brain to develop more efficient pathways to learning.  This improves working memory and leads to significant strides in reading.

 For your child to reach the fastest and greatest growth, one-on-one tutoring, two times per week is suggested.  Lessons are in person or virtual.  Each lesson is explicit, systematic, sequential, multi-sensory and individualized to your child's needs.  Lessons are 50-55 minutes 

Literacy Together is located in Fort Collins, CO.

I provide online, in-person, or hybrid tutoring sessions.
