    We were delighted with Christie. First, and most importantly, our son made great strides under her guidance. So great, that we felt he no longer needed help! She was incredibly patient and kind with him and our son really responded to … More her. Christie was also great with me and my wife. She provided thorough and informative updates on our son's progress and which exercises she was using with him, so we could reinforce what she was teaching him. All in all, we had a fabulous experience with Christie and would highly recommend her.

    Our experience with Theo was terrific. Theo was great with my son. He developed a positive relationship with him based on sincerity, respect, trust and a deep personal connection. In their lessons, Theo was encouraging, creative and kind. … More He helped our son understand how to differentiate the sounds he made when he spoke, and gave him great exercises to practice every week between lessons. Our son was sorry to have the lessons come to an end, but recognized that Theo had helped him as much as possible and it was time for him to stop. Theo explained to him (and us) how to keep working to get the last 5%, and encouraged him to keep working on the exercises on his own. I have recommended Theo to another parent who noticed my son's improvement and inquired for her own son.
    We are all grateful to have gotten to know Theo, and we greatly appreciate all the work he did to help our son.

    Theo is a wonderful Clinton Hill speech therapist. We were really pleased with him. Our son showed drastic improvement, not only in his speech but in his confidence.

    Alexa has been an enthusiastic, reliable, well prepared and caring teacher for our 6 year old daughter. She has been able to improve and increase our daughter's confidence lesson by lesson with patience and competence; through varied … More and productive didactic practice. Alexa has engaged our daughter in several activities that always kept her motivated and eager to learn literacy. My wife and I, both of us are educators, feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to observe Alexa's pedagogical skills. Alexa has had a big impact on our daughter literacy growth. Thank you Brooklyn Letters!

    We were absolutely DELIGHTED with Marsha's services. She was wonderful. We found her to be kind, fun, engaging, very knowledgeable. She provided us with clear instructions and additional written handouts each week. She engaged our … More son with different techniques and toys, and showed us how to use her techniques when we were interacting with him. I actually just texted her on Saturday - Our son finally said "more" - one of the target words we had been working on with her. It was a total joy to hear, and I had to share it with her - she wrote back immediately to congratulate us. I am so appreciative of her expertise, and wish we could have seen her for longer. I recommended her to another family in our neighborhood who is looking for a speech therapist.

Searching for a Westchester County Wilson Tutor?

Our Westchester County Wilson Tutor Travels to Your Westchester County Home:
Clarkstown Orangetown Ramapo

The Orton-Gillingham approach is used in the Wilson Reading System, a type of reading instruction. It is intended to assist students who are falling behind their peers in word decoding and children and adults with language-based learning disabilities. It is commonly used with elementary, middle, and high school students. Wilson Fundations is for students in kindergarten (k) through third grade.

The Wilson Reading System builds skills in a specific order over time. WRS students receive instruction in the following areas, according to Wilson Language Training:

  • Word structure for automatic decoding and spelling
  • High-frequency word recognition and spelling, including irregular words
  • Sentence-level text reading with ease, expression, and comprehension
  • Comprehending age-appropriate narrative and informational text
  • Reading comprehension with increasing levels of difficulty in narrative and expository text
  • Text structures for narrative and informational purposes
  • Information organization for oral or written expression
  • Proofreading abilities
  • Word recognition accuracy and comprehension self-monitoring

Wilson Reading System, like other Orton-Gillingham-inspired programs, employs a multi-sensory approach. It teaches the structure of the English language directly and systematically. Students learn to connect sounds and words using their visual, auditory, kinesthetic (movement), and tactile senses. WRS, on the other hand, employs more direct learning materials, such as concrete pictures, to assist students in focusing on decoding words without relying on visual cues.

Our Westchester County Wilson tutor, Kara, will undoubtedly have the necessary qualifications, but we also want to ensure a good fit in terms of interests and personality.

Having a strong understanding of the English language and some background knowledge of how it came to be the way it is can be extremely beneficial, especially at higher levels of Wilson tutoring.
