I am a special education teacher certified in grades pre-k to grade 12. I taught for thirteen years. I have a bachelor's degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders and have a master's degree in Language Learning Disabilities. I am experienced in specialized reading programs, particularly Wilson Books 1-6 and LiPS. I also have a Speech/Language background which enhances my skills in the reading programs. I have seen success ranging from minimal to major in the tools that I use. I am currently using Wilson and LiPS with students I tutor and have seen success with each student.
Writing is also an area where I have seen success with students. I had training in several writing programs which I use with students I tutor. I focus primarily on adding detail to their writing. Other areas which are also addressed in my lessons are writing effective topic and concluding sentences, adding transition words, expanding vocabulary, and adding unusual words in their writing. These areas are assessed in the CMT's.
Let me prove to you that I am a "Tutor with Results."
