I love to teach reading skills to young students in English or Spanish. I'm a "younger" retired preschool and elementary teacher of over 30 years. I have special training in Reading Recovery, which is used with struggling readers. I use manipulatives in my teaching and the children like my methods and learn. I am very caring, positive, and nurturing.
I have a California Bilingual Credential which specifies I can teach preschool through 12th grade and also teach Adults. I also have a Certificate stating that I had Master's Level training in reading methods. Included are all multiple subjects including handwriting, spelling and reading, writing, study skills and English.
I have special training in Reading Recovery from St. Mary's college in Moraga, Ca. It was a 2 year program. I learned special phonics techniques to teach struggling readers. Some of those techniques include using magnetic letters, spacing cards to separate syllables, journal-writing, using chalk to write on a green board, pointing to words as the child reads them and then going back to the full sentence the child wrote with fluency and comprehension.
I've had much success teaching struggling readers, hesitant readers, younger students ranging from 3.5 years old at Achieving Stars Academy in Milpitas, California and at various other public schools with kindergarten students, first and second graders also.
