Using Orton Gillingham methods, I teach my students in an explicit, systematic and sequential way to ensure that the support I offer is meeting their needs and helping them succeed as a reader. The progress monitoring data I collect with students, guide me in making instructional decisions for upcoming sessions. I strive to create learning experiences for my students that are not only grounded in data, but also student interest and learning style.
Ashley is wonderful with children. She is patient, kind, fun, reliable, and punctual. More importantly, my child really enjoys his time spent with her.
My daughter loves working with Mrs. R, which eliminates a big part of the battle as a parent. When your kid is excited to go to tutoring you know it’s a great fit. I appreciate that she listens to what I feel like she needs in addition to the testing she’s had done. She is super easy to communicate with. My daughter has grown tremendously because she’s willing to look for the best method for my child. Highly recommend!
I use diagnostic data in order to make all of my instructional decisions. With initial data, I have a starting point of where to fill in phonics and phonological awareness gaps. Then, I use the anectdoctal notes and progess monitoring data I collect during the lesson, to plan for the next tutoring session.
I am a Blue Valley teacher who has experience in teaching or tutoring students K-5. I am trained in Orton Gillingham explicit and sequential methods and the Science of Reading philosophy; which I use daily to make instructional decisions. The lesson plans I create are time-consuming to create, but are specifically created with your child's needs in mind.
The tutoring lesson plans I create are grounded in Orton Gillingham approach, so they are sequential, explicit and systematic in structure. They are time-consuming to create, because every word, phrase, and strategy I use in my lessons, have your child in mind. The goal is to fill any phonological or phonics gaps they may have, in order to help them be successful readers and writers. Therefore, after discussing with many other Blue Valley Reading Specialists in the district, I set my rate at $60 dollars per hour.
