Hi, I’m Nellie!

I’ve tutored in Portland for the last seven years.

I started using the multi-sensory Orton-Gillingham approach for literacy after seeing first-hand how Portland’s classrooms don’t meet the reading, writing and spelling needs of our children. This method works well for all learners but is essential for those with dyslexia.

I create individualized lessons to hone in on areas of growth for each student. I have a systematic scope and sequence, so each new lesson is based on prior learning.

  • I have experience teaching all ages and levels.
  • I tutor out of my home in SE Portland.
  • I typically see students 2-4 times per week in 45 minute sessions.
  • I have a sliding scale of $60-80 per session and bill monthly.
