Reading Tutor

Reading instruction targets the cortical regions of the brain. 

Jessie has the training and skills to recognize, evaluate and connect gaps in the pre-cortical, automatic regions of the brain and, as a licensed teacher, the ability to provide a multi-sensory, structured and intense system for those struggling with reading difficulties, targeting the cortical brain.

Using the Orton-Gillingham based Barton Reading and Spelling Curriculum, Jessie works one-on-one with students struggling with reading. 

Working with the knowledge that building student-teacher relationships are key, sessions will be in-person when possible, or online using the Whizzimo software.  The online process involves zoom and sharing of the screen and mouse to complete activities with the help of technology.  Relationships will be built and fun will occur with plenty of one-on-one face time, even through a screen. The only requirements for online work are internet capability and a laptop, desktop or chromebook that accepts app downloads (not a school device).  The gift of technology also allows students outside of our home area of the Twin Cities to participate in tutoring, too.

 

To bring the reading, writing, and spelling skills of a child with who struggles or is identified with dyslexia up to grade level, you need these 5 things:

  1. The right system
    We use the Orton-Gillingham -based Barton Reading and Spelling system

  2. The right tutor or teacher
    Someone who is well trained  see resume and background here

  3. The right intensity level
    At least twice a week, for an hour each time

  4. The right setting
    One-on-one tutoring is best

  5. For the right duration
    Until the student's skills are at or beyond grade level
