Math Tutoring (Orton-Gillingham)
Our highly-specialized, multi-sensory Orton-Gillingham math program helps students learn the why of math in an explicit, direct and multi-sensory manner. This program takes the abstract concepts of math, and with practice makes them concrete. Not only will you or your student learn the math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), but also the vocabulary of math, the strategy of solving word problems, time, money, measurement, fractions, percentages, decimals and more.
Abstract to Concrete
For example, concepts such as “addition” and math facts such as 1 + 1 = 2 are taught in a logical and sequential manner. Meaning that we start with the basics to learn the building blocks of math. Once addition is mastered, we move on to subtraction, multiplication and then division. Our tutors teach one concept at a time to mastery, before moving on to the next, based on the pace needed for you or your student to learn.
Our intensive Orton-Gillingham math program will provide you or your student with the tools and confidence necessary to become successful in math!
Students learn how the abstract number “1” equates to one block, visually. For example in addition, they draw one block, plus another block, to prove that this equation 1 + 1 equals two. By using manipulatives to “see” the problem being solved, students learn to prove that the equation is correct, turning abstract numbers into visual and concrete solutions. Abstract becomes concrete, and with practice becomes “hard-wired” into memory.
