Hi! I'm Lisa Key. I provide personalized, one-on-one tutoring lessons for reading, writing, and spelling. Though I specialize in dyslexia, my instruction is applicable to all students. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Washington, and I am Orton-Gillingham-trained at the Academy Associate Level, continuing to work under the mentorship of a Fellow. I also served on the Kent School District Dyslexia Advisory Committee from 2019-2021 to advocate for dyslexia-related professional development for public school teachers. I first became passionate about dyslexia after my son was diagnosed with it in 2017. Through private Orton-Gillingham tutoring, he has blossomed both in academics and with his self-esteem. My heart is in providing quality education and support to students and their families.
As an Orton-Gillingham Associate Practitioner, I am committed to providing high-quality, multisensory instruction that is explicit and sequential. Concepts are continually reviewed so the student achieves mastery. After an initial assessment, every hour-long lesson is tailored to the student and adjusted as it's needed. Lessons include games and a nurturing, supportive atmosphere.
Lessons are held in my home in Covington, Washington. It is a pet-free home with space for family members. I am fully vaccinated from Covid-19 and ask that unvaccinated children wear a mask during lessons. The work area and supplies are cleaned after each lesson.
Every student has unique needs for support. Tell me more about what you are hoping a tutor can do for you, and I will start on a plan to help you get what you need.
