My name is Katie. I am an academic coach, who specializes in the remediation of dyslexic and dysgraphic students. I have eight years tutoring experience mostly in reading and writing, but also in math up through middle school. I am trained in the following methods:
The Orton-Gillingham Approach
The Lindamood-Bell Approach
Visualizing/Verbalizing Comprehension Approach
Multi-sensory Written Language Approaches
Traditional Basal Approach
Touch-Math (multi-sensory math approach)
I have worked for bowman educational services, inc., EBL Coaching, and the Santa Monica Tutoring Club, and helped numerous students improve their grade levels in reading, writing, and math. I have also taught numerous dyslexic students who always struggled with reading, how to become competent readers and writers and to meet and/or go beyond their grade level.
I am additionally very strong when it comes to helping students who are dysgraphic, or struggle with writing, organize their thoughts and construct essays, research papers, creative writing assignments, etc.
Also, my students are comfortable relating to me, and I work really well with all ages, Kindergarten through high school and college, through adult. I particularly enjoy helping students discover their own unique talents, and encouraging them to use those talents both in and out of school.
