Orton-Gillingham tutoring is available for students of any age or skill-level.  At the first meeting, each student is given an informal assessment which allows the tutor to design a plan based on the student's individual profile.  Each tutoring lesson is then tailored to the specific needs of the learner.

O-G lessons address all of the essential aspects of literacy, with the goal of fostering a fluent, enthusiastic, and independent reader and writer.  Skills that are integral to all O-G lessons include:

  • decoding (reading)

  • encoding (spelling)

  • phonological awareness (awareness and manipulation of speech sounds)

  • phonics

  • basic morphology (prefixes, base words, roots)

  • spelling rules

  • reading fluency

  • reading comprehension

  • written expression

  • penmanship

  • basic grammar


Older or more advanced students may also learn:

  • advanced morphology

  • advanced grammar

  • how to plan various types of essays

  • outlining

  • revising

  • organizational and executive functioning skills


Orton-Gillingham tutoring can also be done remotely if geography prohibits in-person tutoring.  Our tutors ensure that lessons are still multisensory, engaging, and effective, even if they take place at a distance.
