Tutoring

 

At Katrina Dreamer Tutoring, we tailor sessions to students’ needs. In particular, Katrina works with students who are neurodiverse, especially those who have ADHD, dyslexia, reading and writing delays, processing issues, executive function gaps, and other learning differences.​ She is trained in Orton-Gillingham at the Academy Associate level. We also have a highly skilled upper level math tutor, Danielle Drogalis, on staff.

Help your child move from struggling to successful.

 

With 20 years of experience working with students in all grades, Katrina is an expert tutor who can help your child succeed. She helps children move through fear and resistance to feel more confident and comfortable with school.​

Orton-Gillingham trained professional

 

Katrina is trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach at the Academy Associate level and continues to be supervised by a fellow. O-G helps students close gaps in reading skills and is the gold standard of dyslexia intervention. Her students have seen significant gains through this approach.

More than traditional tutoring.  

 

Depending on your student’s needs, Katrina also incorporates mindfulness, meditation, energy work, guided imagery, active imagination, art, and dreamwork. She teaches students how to access their inner strength and intuition to help them make better decisions and overcome obstacles.
