Welcome Shenaz Lilywala!

Shenaz Lilywala



Shenaz is trained in the Orton Gillingham (OG) approach and has been using and seeing success with it for the last 4 years in her 1st grade classroom. She is passionate about using the OG approach as it gives her the opportunity to provide explicit multisensory instruction that she wished she had. She strongly believes that each and every child should be able to read. She saw how powerful the explicit instruction was that she was able to help her struggling students grow while being a virtual teacher the whole year during the pandemic.

The Orton-Gillingham Approach




temp-post-image




THE ORTON-GILLINGHAM APPROACH






The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a multisensory, structured, sequential, and diagnostic way to teach literacy in reading, writing, and spelling. This approach is associated with one-on-one teacher-student instructional mode. Further, it's always focused upon the learning of the individual student. Orton-Gillingham Practitioners design lessons and materials to work with students at the level they present by pacing instruction and introduction of new materials to their individual strengths and weaknesses.


Space is limited for our certified Orton-Gillingham trained teachers, so please call and reserve your child's space today!

On Reading and Writing Instruction-

temp-post-image


Helping children of all ages thrive in reading and writing skills is the most important goal for the Teachers as Tutors team. Parents, let us face it, the Pandemic had serious negative effects on many children. In the early grades, k-2, children were often not able to access the basics of social skills such as developing relationships with others, use of expressive language and even development of basic phonics skills because masks impaired the children’s abilities to look at lip formations. Many students have learned to form letters incorrectly because they did not have direct instruction in forming letters. In the upper- elementary and middle school grades some students did not consi...
