Reading Writing Connection

Qualified Instructors

The Reading Writing Connection instructors are highly qualified and trained professionals committed to your child’s success.  Dyslexics learn differently, so our approach is different.  It is one that effectively facilitates a learnilng partnership between the student and instructor.


Since 2008, the Reading Writing Connection has been helping students with reading and spelling through one-to-one tutoring in comprehension strategies, decoding the alphabet, reading, spelling,  writing and language comprehension. Using the research-based, multi-sensory program Orton Gillingham we see results.  We focus on the basics of learning to read, enhanced academic performance and self-esteem. We provide students with a safe and accepting environment, engaging them in an ongoing process of discovery and success.

We are always looking for great instructors.  If you are interested in learning more about taking the Orton-Gillingham instruction training please call us at 517-787-8620.

The Reading Writing Connection is seeking five instructors for one-on-one dyslexia instruction/tutoring.

Each instructor must successfully complete the Orton –Gillingham Training offered by the Reading Writing Connection.    This course is designed to serve teachers, parents, home schoolers, administrators, service providers, tutors, literacy coordinators, educational therapists and advocates, who wants to improve their knowledge of dyslexia and their ability to help those affected by dyslexia.

    I would love to enroll into your training program. Could you let me know the dates in 2013 that it will be offered? I am a full time educator and would enjoy becoming a part time instructor with the reading and writing center.

    Thank you for your time in responding to my message.

      Kathy, Sorry for the delay in responding to your inquiry. The site did not notify us of your comment. We just completed instructor training in January and will offer this again when we have a minimum of four students. I will contact you via email and give more details. You would love being a part of this organization since the impact we make on our students is huge. We give the gift of reading. Thanks for your interest.
