Meet the Tutor

My  name is Casey Welsh and I am an Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators Certified Level Tutor and a Fellow in Training with the Academy of Orton-Gillingham offering specialized one-on-one reading instruction. Following the true Orton-Gillingham approach each lesson is specifically designed for the individual student's needs. Orton-Gilllingham is a multi-sensory, language based, structured,  cumulative, cognitive, and flexible instructional approach used to teach a student struggling with letter/sound relationships, reading, spelling and/or handwriting. While fifteen to twenty percent of children struggle with reading it has been difficult to assess the help they need in the Savannah area. Dyslexia has affected me personally , through my family, and has driven me to find a way to help others in our area and increase access of this scientifically proven teaching method to our city. I look forward to working with your children to help them crack the code!
