I am a licensed reading specialist with over 10 years experience in education. I currently teach reading in a public elementary school. I have a Master's degree in Reading and am also licensed in early childhood education and elementary education. I love teaching young children how to read and helping older students improve their reading and writing skills. I can help your child with alphabet knowledge, phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, fluency and comprehension as well as written responses to literature. I use a wide variety of materials to provide a multi-sensory approach to phonics and have a large library of leveled books targeted to different reading levels. I look forward to helping your child become a skilled and confident reader.
