I'm a retired teacher and reading specialist with nearly 40 years of experience, and I believe reading is an important life skill that everyone should have. For children and adults alike, I focus on strengthening the necessary foundation students need for decoding, comprehending, and reading fluently. Direct one-to-one instruction can really make a difference for a struggling reader, so let's work together to help you realize your full reading potential.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have earned an M.A. in Education and taught in the Public School System for 23 years. I also hold a Clear Specialist Instruction Credential in Reading from the California CTC authorizing me to teach Reading and Language Arts.

Phonics

I hold a Clear Specialist Instruction Credential in Reading through the Commission on Teacher Credentialing in California which authorizes me to teach Reading and Language Arts.

Spelling

As a reading teacher, I teach phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, fluency, and comprehension. Spelling is developmental and you must first be able to hear the sounds of the language to become proficient in spelling. It is my belief that if you have or develop phonological awareness, then you can become a good speller.
