Kaitlyn, our head tutor and owner, has her Bachelor of General Studies from the U of C, Bachelor of Education from the University of Otago in New Zealand, and over 100 hours of Orton Gillingham training from the Orton-Gillingham Online Academy and The Reach Learning Centre in Vancouver. In addition, Kaitlyn has completed a supervised practicum and is a certified Orton-Gillingham Practitioner. She worked as an elementary school teacher for ten years, teaching in various settings, from private to public and French immersion classrooms. She has additional training through the Dyslexia Center of Georgia, where she learned the game-changing handwriting correction technique from Jill Ham.

Kaitlyn found her passion for helping children with dyslexia after her two sons were diagnosed several years ago. She has seen firsthand how exceptional the dyslexic brain is and what it is capable of with the correct methods of instruction and a dedicated teacher. She aims to connect with each child and create a learning environment that is supportive and fun!

“Literacy Unlocked came recommended to us by our daughter’s school, she had been struggling with spelling and writing assignments.  With Kaitlyn’s tutoring, our daughter improved in a number of literacy skills.  We have seen her become more confident and the quality of her school work has improved.  Both of our children now have been able to work with Kaitlyn.  Her method and approach with students makes it easier for parents to practice literacy skills at home, without a struggle.
