Language Development Tutorial Department
Suzanna Greer, a Fellow-in-Training of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators, is the Director of Camperdown's Language Development Tutorial Department. She has worked with dyslexic students at Camperdown for eight years. In addition to supervising teachers in the Orton-Gillingham approach, Suzanna maintains a daily tutorial schedule. She is completing coursework on a Masters Degree and welcomes the opportunity to share her knowledge and experience with our parents and the community at large.
Camperdown tutors have extensive training and experience in the Orton-Gillingham approach. Heidi Bishop, a full-time tutor and Director of Transistions and Training, is a Fellow in the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators. We have three Certified Level tutors on staff: Maxine Bennett, Stephen Cook, and Christine Smith, with a fourth tutor, Diana Carey, awaiting AOGPE approval of her application. And, Pat Porter, an AOGPE Fellow who taught at the school for 25 years, stills works with students and teachers on a regular basis.
Each of our content teachers have received training in the Orton-Gillingham approach resulting in a cohesive school-wide team. So, as students moves through their daily class schedules, they experience consistency in the manner in which they are taught.
