Orton-Gillingham Tutoring


Dii offers 1:1 Orton-Gillingham tutoring for students ages 6 to adult. The first step to getting started at Dii is to schedule a 1-hour consultation with one of our dyslexia specialists.


1-hour Consultation

Meet with a Dii multi-sensory specialist to discuss the learning needs for yourself or your child. Our specialist has over 15 years of experience working with the dyslexic community. Get your questions answered about multi-sensory learning, the Orton-Gillingham method, dyslexia testing and advocating for your child’s needs. Consultations are one hour long, cost $50 and are nonrefundable. Call 317-222-6635 to schedule a consultation appointment.

Summer Tutoring Options

Summer is a wonderful time for tutoring. Orton-Gillingham tutoring over the summer can help your student not lose ground in their reading. Many students often raise their reading level as well as their self esteem with summer help.

Sign up for our most common package Summer Maintenance.  This 6 week tutoring package for $880 gives your child access to twice a week tutoring all summer and still gives you time for that family vacation or camp.

Want more tutoring time?  Can’t commit to 6 weeks?   Summer is flexible and so are we.  Dii can customize tutoring over the summer.  Whether you have 8 weeks available for tutoring or just 3 weeks before the start of the new school year,  we will try to match you with just the right tutor to help your student.  Just let us know on the application.
