Language Tutorial Instructor
Individualized Language Tutorials are an essential component of The Greenwood School’s curriculum. Implementing diagnostic-prescriptive teaching practices and reflecting on our students’ daily performance allows tutors to design a program of study that addresses individual language needs. Tutors prescribe a comprehensive literacy plan that incorporates research-proven approaches and programs (Orton-Gillingham, Wilson Reading System, LiPS). Tutorials include all components of literacy instruction: oral language, phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, fluency, vocabulary, morphology, and reading comprehension. We are seeking a highly trained tutor who understands the complex literacy needs of students with dyslexia and other learning differences.
