Founder of FUNDAMENTAL LEARNING
Liisa Freure, M.Ed., OCT, Fellow/OGA, SLDS/CERI-IDA
Liisa Freure has over 30 years of experience in the field of education. She 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. This led her to go beyond her Special Education Training, to become certified as an education advocate and a Fellow with the Orton-Gillingham Academy. In addition, Liisa is trained in Structured Word Inquiry and continues to expand and enrich her understanding of language. Liisa now runs a private educational consulting and tutoring practice for students of all ages, consults with schools and clinics, speaks at conferences, and trains parents, teachers and other professionals in Structured Literacy. She has been actively involved with the Ontario Branch of the International Dyslexia Association since 2007 and has served in various roles including two terms as President.
