Orton-Gillingham Trainer

MaxScholar is a rapidly growing company in the reading intervention space. We have
developed an exciting new program to help teachers teach reading to low performing students,
using the Orton-Gillingham approach. Our program starts with very strong teacher-training,
uses self-developed instructional materials, and provides a software program to give these
struggling readers the drill and practice they desperately need to become successful readers.
We have a very large presence in NYC, Florida, Georgia, and Arizona, but are growing very
quickly all over the country.

We are looking for teachers who have formal training in the Orton-Gillingham approach,
preferably certified, and with experience in using the approach with students. It is a chance to
work in a very tech-savvy company all of whose employees are committed to making a
difference in the lives of those children. You could become a very important person in the
future development of this company.

You must be good on the phone, great in person, and totally committed to the OG approach as
the best program to teach phonics to students who often never received that foundation. We
want you to become an OG trainer for us, helping out with webinars for new schools, in-person
professional development for new and existing schools, and for schools who were referred to
us for information. You must be good on computers and be knowledgeable in Google Docs.
You will receive immense personal satisfaction, not only in working with the students, but also
in working with teachers, many of whom have never received formal training in how to teach
reading. We will encourage you to share your own ideas about how to incorporate the OG
approach in the curriculum of schools and give you the opportunity to express those ideas.

If this job description sounds like you, please send in your resume to Dr. Deborah Levy, our

PLEASE, if you do not have OG training, do not apply for this position.
