I am a certified elementary teacher, and my tutoring students address me "Ms. Margaret." My K-8 subjects include reading, writing, math, and dyslexia; I teach students with the Barton Reading materials and plan to become a certified Barton tutor in the near future. With several years of successful tutoring experience, I regularly provide parent references to parents of prospective students.

In addition to private tutoring, I also teach as a math tutor in a D-11 middle school. Teaching is my passion and calling. I have a friendly and upbeat teaching style while challenging, pacing, motivating, and holding students accountable for their learning progress.

Many times I find that students are smarter and more capable than they realize, and directing them in learning and toward increased confidence brings joy to me, as a teacher. I can help your child succeed also!

Dyslexia

I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham Approach, Barton Reading program, and Lindamood Bell strategies. In addition, I have completed three courses through the Dyslexia Training Institute in California. Currently, I am carrying out remediation with four dyslexic children. I will be happy to discuss your child's needs, answer your questions, and provide parent references.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a K-6 licensed teacher in Colorado and have helped many students learn and grow in their reading, math, and writing skills. I enjoy helping struggling students to understand difficult concepts and make progress in their needed skills!

Reading

My qualifications for teaching reading include experience with reading students and training in the remediation of reading problems, including the Orton-Gillingham Approach, Lindamood Bell strategies, and the Barton Reading program.

Special Needs

As a CO licensed teacher, I have successfully tutored several students with special needs: Asperger's, ADHD, FASD, bipolar, and Down's Syndrome. My teaching practice has been greatly influenced by the writings of Dr. Mel Levine, about the neurodevelopmental aspects of learning. At this time, four of my long-time students are special needs students. I especially love helping these students, to assess and strengthen their specific areas of weakness, as well as building lifelong learning strategies into these children.
