Melissa Berry

In her own words:

I have over 20 years of experience as an educator; including working as a certified elementary education teacher and a special education teacher; as well as my ESOL certification.

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



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!



Summer Literacy and Math Programs

Summer almost upon us and we are looking forward to engage your child in our new summer tutoring workshops taught by first-class certified teachers at our Alpharetta office. These workshops offer you a chance to help your child bridge the gap between their current grade in school and the next one quickly approaching at summer’s end.

We offer programs in Reading, Writing, and Math skills to children of all ages. Teachers As Tutors offers an advantage to other tutoring services, in that we specialize in the subjects that we teach, and the focus is on the individual learner. The students actually get one-on-one attention and the focus is on each child’s particular needs.
