Orton       Gillingham


Julie Boesky

Dyslexia Specialist/Reading Tutor

     I moved to Manhattan in 2015 after many years in the Portland, Maine area where I was first a classroom teacher and then became a reading specialist.  I am certified in the Orton Gillingham methodology through IMSLEC and the International Dyslexia Association.

      For the past ten years, I have worked with dozens of dyslexic children and struggling readers, helping them to build both their literacy skills and self esteem. I believe that my successes with my students stem from the neuro-science underlying the method, along with my students' hard work and tenacity, the support of their families, and the fun and creativity I build into our work.  No two students are the same, so I tailor lessons for the individual student while still maintaining the core components of the methodology.
