I have a M.Ed in Special Education and I am a MA licensed special needs and elementary teacher. I have been tutoring the Wilson Reading System (phonic-based program) for eight years to dyslexic students and young learners.

I now tutor all subject areas, except high level math and science for students K-12. I teach to the student's learning style and have years of experience working with learning disabled students, especially language-based. Recently, I have been working with students on the Autism/Aspergers spectrum.

I make learning fun and can provide glowing references from satisfied students and parents. Learning should be an adventure and rewarding. I keep changing teaching styles until I find the right fit for your child so they will enjoy tutoring. When a student starts feeling confident from understanding the subject, it makes a huge difference in their school experience and self-esteem.
