Danielle Geberth received her Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from S.U.N.Y. Cortland and a Master’s of Science degree in Education-Reading from C.U.N.Y. Lehman. Working as a Speech Therapist in NY, across several different settings, Danielle worked with a wide range of students ranging from kindergarten to twenty-one years of age. Incorporating the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Danielle effectively provided speech and language therapy and reading instruction.
When Danielle’s husband retired from the NY State Police in 2014, they happily moved to Mount Pleasant with their four daughters and two puppies. Shortly after settling in, Danielle took a position with Trident Academy, working with students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Language-Based Learning Disabilities. The following year, she taught third grade, teaching all subjects, and provided Orton-Gillingham (OG) – based reading intervention. Danielle obtained her Certified Level of certification from the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE) and aspires to become an AOGPE Fellow. Danielle has been trained in Project Read’s writing program, Framing Your Thoughts (FYT), and in Marilyn Zecher’s multi-sensory approach to math instruction. Both teaching methods encourage a hands-on, systematic approach to teaching writing and math.
In all tutoring sessions, Danielle closely follows OG principles, which are essential keys to making steady progress. Each lesson is personalized, multi-sensory, and designed to provide continual review to ensure consistent understanding of the concepts. This instruction is direct, systematic, sequential, and provides continuous positive feedback. After seeing the ‘magic’ that happens with the OG, FYT, and multi-sensory math approaches, Danielle is passionate about helping students learn to read, write and understand math. With steady success, her students grow in confidence and motivation to succeed academically.
