Red Panda Reading
Hi! I'm a mom, a tutor, and a former struggling reader. My daughter was diagnosed with Dyslexia when she was 10 years old. It was during the review of her neuro-psychological testing, that I realized I have experienced dyslexic characteristics like slow processing speed, letter reversals, and difficulty rhyming. In order, to help my daughter, I took a 9-month intensive class on the Orton Gillingham method. This approach helps children learn to read phonetically, in a systematic order, and with multi-sensory learning techniques. I want every student to feel confident as they read, spell, and write.
Lessons and Specialties
Learn - Play - Create - Grow - Know
Wonder if your child is dyslexic? Or perhaps you have a new diagnosis and are unsure what to do next? I can help you navigate this new and sometimes complex, difficult world. I would love to teach you about all the new brain research and specific learning strategies that can support you and your child. I will share what Orton Gillingham is and how it can help students to read. An informed parent can be a powerful advocate.
Sizzling Summer Camps
Summer is the perfect time to strengthen reading, spelling and writing habits and move ahead. My camps are designed for small groups and they include lots of games and hands on learning. We introduce Orton Gillingham and then practice what we have just been taught in a multi sensory way. Your child can choose to attend one camp or several based on your summer schedule.
Every student loves personal attention. I will build specific lessons based on what your child loves. We will go as fast as possible but as slow as your child needs in order to master the concepts and feel confident. Orton Gillingham will help your child read more independently, spell with more success and clearly write their words and thoughts.
