Kaini Gu, Ms. Ed
Educational Therapist, Founder
"Working with Kaini has been a very positive experience for our son; not only did we see improvements in his academics but also his self-esteem. He is more confident when reading. After an assessment , she was able to specifically identify areas to remediate. She has strong knowledge of the subject matter and helped develop techniques to strengthen key areas. She is supportive, patient, and engages with a fun and effective approach. As a parent, her insight and guidance has been invaluable to us. She was always open to meeting with teachers and other school personnel. We have been so fortunate to work with her."

"Kaini worked with my daughter in Orton-Gillingham reading instruction through 7th grade and into 8th grade. My daughter has language based learning difficulties and is also an English language learner. Her expertise in both realms was very evident. My daughter loved working with Kaini! They developed such a wonderful rapport beyond reading and language instruction. Because of Kaini our daughter made great progress!"
Parent of an 8th grader
"I have had the opportunity and privilege to work closely with Kaini Gu during her Orton-Gillingham training. As her primary instructor and supervisor, I observed her ability to grow professionally and to become an excellent diagnostic/prescriptive teacher.
Kaini brings a positive attitude and a real sense of enthusiasm to the work she does with each student. She distinguishes herself with a strong work ethic, excellent organizational skills and a passion for understanding and teaching all types of learners. She worked hard every day to ensure each student’s success."
