Mary Saghafi

Hi I’m Mary Saghafi. I’m a reading tutor. I have taught in all elementary grades. I have Orton-Gillingham training (OG Classroom Educator certified AOGPE). I recently earned my Dyslexia Advocate certification from the Dyslexia Training Institute so that I can continue helping families who are struggling to get appropriate services for dyslexia. I have been helping students with reading issues and dyslexia for 10 years now. I love talking all things teaching! I believe that humor goes a long way when asking students and teachers to do hard things! I am excited to share with Shannon and learn along with all of you!
