I work with 35 students a day at a middle school delivering small group reading instruction in a public school. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish and a Masters in Reading and Literacy. I am licensed to teach Elementary grades 1-6 and Reading all levels by the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. I have also been a consultant for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to implement the latest scientific-based reading research and worked with several school districts to help them implement these practices. I have specialized training in several intensive reading interventions such as Orton-Gillingham, Visualizing and Verbalizing, Lively Letters, Sight Words You Can See, Read Naturally, and EmPower. I am familiar with other interventions such as Wilson, Project READ, and SPIRE. I have been a classroom teacher, reading specialist, reading coach, Title I reading specialist, and Title I Director. I have also worked at the New England Center for Autism and have working knowledge of ABA and behavior modification plans.

My specialty is joyful learning and I make tutoring sessions as fun, engaging and multisensory as I can.

Highly skilled, dedicated, compassionate and dependable! — Jenn is amazing. We were looking for a reading specialist that could help our 1st grade son with his reading deficiency. She met with him and immediately made a connection. Our son does not open up easily, but from day 1, he has been willing to work hard for her โ€“ which was all she asked of him when they met.
