Passion + Persistence
Marilyn is passionate about helping Orton-Gillingham teachers and other educators achieve their goals in the areas of literacy and mathematics. She is an Orton-Gillingham (OG) practitioner, trainer and advocate for students who struggle to learn math skills and the OG practitioners and teachers who teach them.
Marilyn has been involved with teaching literacy to children with dyslexia and learning disabilities over 25 years. Inspired to help her students who just did not get math, she has designed and taught OG Multisensory Math Training Courses which combine a unique full-participation approach to help students be successful and independent while working on their math skills and curriculum.
OG Academic Math Training Courses are designed to provide teachers, instructional support staff, Orton-Gillingham practitioners and parents with hands-on, interactive math training that will benefit the children they teach.

In addition to being an international speaker and OG Math instructor, Marilyn Wardrop is the Executive Director of the Prospect Centre for Multisensory Learning (Orton-Gillingham) in Surrey, British Columbia..
She is regularly celebrated for her easy to follow step-by-step multisensory teaching style and down to earth demeanor. OG (Orton-Gillingham) Math is an interactive, full-participation approach or teaching math that employs a flexible and fulfilling method.
When Marilyn is not teaching, she can be found outside enjoying the four seasons in Surrey and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. But if it’s raining, and it does rain a lot sometimes, she can easily be found at her favorite coffee bistro with a latte or americano in one hand and a great book in the other hand. Just like a perfect math equation, it’s great to be balanced!
