I am a certified Reading Recovery teacher with over twenty years experience in the classroom and at the district office. I have spent my career working with students who struggle to read. I also am able to help train parents on strategies that will help their children succeed in school. My training has taught me how to diagnose reading difficulties in students of all ages. I was motivated to train as a reading teacher because I was a struggling student myself in middle school. Years later I am proud to say I have taught hundreds of students how to read.

With each student I begin with a reading test to pinpoint reading difficulties. I have had extensive training and experience in phonics and reading comprehension. I am also able to help students in writing, which is a direct reflection of reading skills.

I have worked with students of all ages in reading and I strongly believe that all students can learn. Let the road to success begin!
