What is the application process for your course?
We process applications on a first-come, first-served basis.
Upon receiving a complete application package, we will review it and then schedule a telephone interview with you.
If you are accepted into the course, you will be notified by email when to pick up your materials package that you will need prior to course start.
We close registration for the course once we have filled all the seats in the course.
I don’t have a university degree. Can I still apply for the course?
Yes, but you will not be able to receive certification through the Academy of Orton Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE), which sets the standards for certification.
Please visit their website for more info: www.ortonacademy.org.
Will I get a certificate upon completion of this course?
You will receive a letter stating that you have completed the requirements of the course.
Can I begin to tutor once I have completed the course?
Yes. However, it is highly recommended that you take the practicum.
What is the job market like for OG tutors?
There are three OG schools in the Lower Mainland, and numerous private tutoring agencies that prefer OG-certified tutors. You can also start a private practice.
