Orton-Gillingham Certified Tutoring Program of Ohio
One-on-One Phonics-Based Instruction
Tutor Doctor Ohio provides one on one in home tutoring with certified Orton-Gillingham instructors. The Orton-Gillingham method of reading instruction was developed by Dr. Samuel T. Orton and educator Anna Gillingham. The Orton-Gillingham methodology utilizes phonetics and emphasizes visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles. Instruction begins by focusing on the structure of language and gradually moves towards reading. The program provides students with immediate feedback and a predictable sequence that integrates reading, writing, and spelling.
The Orton-Gillingham method is language-based and success-oriented. The student is directly taught reading, handwriting, and written expression as one logical body of knowledge. Learners move step by step from simple to more complex material in a sequential, logical manner that enables students to master important literacy skills. This comprehensive approach to reading instruction benefits all students.
The ability to read is crucial to the success of all students, and it is essential to success in our society. It is the academic skill that lays the foundation for all learning. The Orton-Gillingham method that is used by our certified instructors gives the confidence and skills to deliver powerful reading instruction to every child.
Children struggling with reading and those diagnosed with a learning disability will depend on a direct, phonics-based, multi-sensory approach to literacy instruction. The Orton-Gillingham approach will provide your child with a strong foundation of the English language. This success-based approach will give your child the confidence they need to become a successful learner as they progress to more advanced concepts.
