I am a newly retired teacher who has spent my career teaching reading and writing. I am trained in several different methods of teaching reading and assessing reading skills. I also have experience with special education students, as my master's degree is in mild to moderate special education with and emphasis on literacy.
My experience includes being a classroom teacher in grades K-2, reading teacher for grade levels K-5, intervention teacher for grades K-5 and an instructional coach for teachers teaching K-5. My philosophy for teaching reading and writing is to assess the students' abilities and then take them from where they are to where they need to be, using a multiple modality approach. Early reading intervention is my primary interest. Reading and Writing go hand in hand, and good instruction in one will improve the skills in both. I have tutored many students in the past with great success.
