Tutoring

Reading Instruction for Students with Dyslexia

We offer tutoring using the Orton-Gillingham method. We begin with a simple assessment for placement and work with individuals and small groups of up to four students. We craft an individual program to suit the student’s needs.

The instructional program is highly structured, sequential, and relies on frequent sessions for best results. Tutoring is typically done five days a week during after-school hours.

After-School Tutoring Program
After-school tutoring is offered from September through June. The program is designed to accommodate various dismissal times, including the Bellevue School District and the Lake Washington School District.

Instruction in the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading will alternate with multi-sensory learning activities in order to allow for maximum instructional time for students with different arrival times.

Students should attend a minimum of 60 minutes per day for full benefit from the program. Students are encouraged to attend more than 60 minutes per day within the program hours.

Program hours in July and August for Tutoring Program students are flexible to allow for vacations and enrollment in recreational summer camps.

Flexible Instruction Program
The Flexible Instruction Program is available for adults, home-schooled students, and others who wish to come at times other than the regular After-School Tutoring Program hours. Sessions will be scheduled in one-hour increments.

Consultations
Hours may also be scheduled for consultations and extended discussions that exceed the progress reports included in the After-School Tutoring Program.
