I have been in the role of a Reading Specialist in the Arlington and Hingham Public Schools for the last 13 years. I hold certifications in Reading (K-12) and Elementary Education. In addition, I have taught H.S. Special Education. Trained in a variety of specialized reading and writing programs such as Orton-Gillingham, Wilson, Rave-O and Empowering Writers, I am adept at meeting individual needs, levels and learning styles.
While building confidence by reinforcing strengths, I work to remediate areas in need of improvement. Whether it is working with struggling dyslexic first graders in phonics, building vocabulary with ELL students, guiding fourth graders in comprehending themes in literature or assisting high school students to write detailed, cohesive essays, my skills and experience are both broad and deep. Give a call to see if I would be a good match.
