Liisa Freure is a former elementary school teacher in Toronto who received her M.Ed. from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. Liisa’s initial interest in research-based interventions for at-risk students began when traditional methods of instruction did not seem to work for some students. Then, after two of her own three children exhibited early signs of dyslexia, Liisa began to learn all that she could about strategies for intervention and remediation. Liisa now runs a private educational consulting and tutoring practice for students of all ages and trains teachers in the Orton-Gillingham approach. In addition to her background in Special Education, Liisa is certified as an education advocate and is a Fellow of the Academy of Orton Gillingham Practitioners and Educators. She has been actively involved with the Ontario Branch of the International Dyslexia Association since 2007 and has served in various roles including President.
