keneiker.com is an online platform for helping children with dyslexia learn to read, spell, and enhance their academic growth. With deep, working knowledge of the original Orton Gillingham method, phonics, linguistics, etymology, morphology, and phonology, Ken Eiker is different from other online dyslexia specialists and reading tutors.
Working with Ken online, your child will learn why English words are spelled the way they are, they will gain knowledge of the structure of English, and they will understand language in a way that is meaningful and lasting.
Every child is seen as a distinctive learner. Ken believes that parents know their children best and he listens and seeks insights from them about their children's strengths and struggles with dyslexia. Strong working relationships are created with every child. Your child will be nurtured both academically and emotionally, via one-to-one tutorials with one of the most highly qualified dyslexia specialists you will find.
Sometimes, Jenny the beagle will pop in to meet students and listen to them read and spell, too!
During Ken's experience as a reading tutor and dyslexia specialist, he found that children can be more engaged and focused when they work with technology.
To leverage his students' enthusiasm for learning, Ken uses Whizzimo, the finest digital teaching platform for Orton Gillingham based multisensory reading and spelling instruction in the industry. Used in tandem with Zoom, the tutoring is live, face-to-face, and highly interactive. In relationship with Ken on this platform, your child will progress and gain confidence.
Most children will be able to read on grade level within one to two years if they consistently attend lessons 2-3 times per week. It takes two to four years to complete the entire Orton Gillingham based instruction and those who do usually read at the ninth-grade level or higher.
For more information about the Orton Gillingham method, please call or send Ken an email and he will personally schedule a time to talk with you about your child's particular needs and how the program would be tailored to him or her..
