Hello! I'm known as Nan, Reading Teacher, Ms. W, and the Book Lady. I have a bachelor's degree in Comparative Literature and a master's in Creative Writing. My passion is reading. I believe it is the foundation upon which all future success is built. As a special education paraprofessional and as a poet-in-the-schools, I've worked with struggling readers and avid readers. My tool bag includes patience, genuine respect for the student, humor, workbooks, flash cards, and games that engage mind and body. I'm familiar with several different curricula including PCI, Fundations, and Wilson.
I can help you or your child decode the English language, improve comprehension, and brush up on test or study skills. I've also discovered that I'm not bad with math. I can help your child with the basics and with automaticity.
