1. My child is having difficulty in school. Should I
have my child tested?
2. How long will it take
for my child to get caught up?
The more you know about how
your child learns the better. We recommend having your child
be tested as soon as soon as you notice your child is
experiencing problems so tutoring may start right away. If
you would like more information about how to get your child
tested please go to the "Parent Resource" section.
3. What if my child needs
subject support during a tutoring hour even though they come for
Orton Gillingham tutoring?
How long it takes a student
to catch up varies depending on the student's learning
speed, learning style, and how well they retain information.
Our tutors work at the fastest comfortable rate for their
students. Students struggling to retain information will
take longer to catch up. The individualized pace of our
instruction, coupled with the multisensory methods we
employ, ensures each student maximizes their learning
potential, making for the quickest catch up period.
How fast students catch up
also depends on how much tutoring they receive. We usually
recommend students receive a minimum of two hours per week.
4. Will my child be with
the same tutor every time?
If your child is working on
something at school that they need help with, we would be
happy to help them and work on whatever it is in to the
5. How can I support my
child at home?
Ideally, students are
scheduled with the same tutor for each session.
6. Do you accept ESL
When the child is settled
into the program, the parents have a choice as to whether or
not they would like to have the program binder taken home
each session to reinforce and review what has already been
taught. We often recommend this with children who have
difficulty retaining information. We do want to stress,
however, that this is a choice and it is entirely up to you.
At this time, we do not
accept ESL children.
