Improving Reading

Orton Gillingham-based Tutoring

Simplistic Solutions offers personal and remote tutoring using Barton Reading & Spelling or A-Z Reading (Project Read). These Orton Gillingham based programs are useful for individuals who struggle and are unable to learn to read in the classroom using other methods of reading and spelling.

The Orton Gillingham approach is a powerful instructional approach to teaching reading and spelling with these key features:

  • Multisensory – lessons involve all the major pathways to the brain: visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile
  • Sequential – Concepts are taught in a logical, well-planned sequence
  • Incremental – Each lesson carefully builds upon previous lessons
  • Cumulative – Includes constant and consistent review of previously taught concepts
  • Individualized – The unique needs of every student are met
  • Phonograms – English is simplified by teaching letters and letter combinations known as phonograms
  • Explicit – Students are taught exactly what they need to know in a clear and straightforward fashion
