ADD/ADHD

Many of my dyslexic students also suffer from ADHD. These students with ADHD learn best with carefully structured lessons.I would also explain to the student what I want them to learn in the current lesson. Next I'd mention to the student how he or she should behave during the lesson.

Introducing Lessons

Provide an advance organizer. I also use templates to help organize the student.
Prepare student for the lesson by summarizing the order of activities planned. I'd also remind the student for example, that a review of the previous lesson will be followed by new information.

Dyslexia

I have been successfully teaching dyslexia and ADHD students for over five years using the Barton Method. The The Barton Reading & Spelling System is an Orton-Gillingham influenced approach to reading and spelling. All the latest scientific, independent, replicated reading research supports the Orton-Gillingham sequence and methodology as “best practices” when teaching reading to students with dyslexia.

I am creative in my teaching approach as well as positive and encouraging. My students excel with my cutting edge instructional techniques.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have over 20 years' experience teaching K-6th grade in: writing, phonics, math, and reading. Additionally, I have a teaching credential in English.

English

I am a certified Secondary English Education teacher with over 15 years experience in my field. I have taught: grammar, literature, composition, reading comprehension, and vocabulary. My teaching methods are to first, test the student to better identify their strengths and weakness, then I use poignant, current events and issues to spur on my student's interest and love of learning.
