Orton-Gillingham Tutoring

The Orton-Gillingham instructional approach focuses on the learning needs of a individual student. This tool is intended primarily for work on skills associated with dyslexia. The approach is diagnostic-prescriptive: every lesson is personalized and each lesson is tailored to the student’s strengths and weaknesses as determined by the previous lesson. Skills in reading, spelling, and writing, including phonics, linguistics, rules and patterns of language, etc., are taught directly and systematically. The student receives continuous feedback and positive reinforcement.

  • Short term packages of specialty services offered at $120/hour

  • Long term or ongoing specialty services offered at $110/hour

SSAT Testing, Flex Testing, and Test Prep

Pine Point School is a member of The Enrollment Management Association and is an official test site for the Secondary School Admission Test. The SSAT is a standardized test given to students in grades 5-11 who are preparing to enter boarding school or private school. We offer a calm, pressure-free setting for both Middle and Upper SSAT testing for all students, including those who have approved accommodations. We offer the SSAT on select standard administration test dates each fall. Additional information about the SSAT and registration information may be found at https://ssat.org/

In addition to standard dates, we offer flex testing, available on most dates throughout the year. To inquire about and schedule a flex test for your student, you may submit a request. Please note that a student may only take the SSAT on a flex date once per academic year, and that it may not occur on a designated SSAT testing date. Flex testing must be scheduled with Pine Point School prior to registering through SSAT. 

If you are thinking of applying to secondary schools and would like some help studying, consider taking our SSAT Prep course, offered each fall, or schedule individualized tutoring in SSAT preparation. SSAT Prep and/or tutoring will help your student learn about and practice test-taking strategies and various ways to prepare for the exam. In addition, students will be able to take practice tests and receive feedback.
