I am a reading specialist and trained Reading Recovery teacher who has been succcessfully teaching young children how to read for 14 years in grades K -3. After assesssing a child's literacy skills, I use his or her strengths to develop confidence and proficiency in weaker areas.
I have taught phonics and spelling using the Wilson Fundations program in grades K-3, and use leveled fiction and nonfiction texts to strengthen comprehension and fluency. Areas of focus can include language, expressive reading, word analysis, writing and/or test-taking skills.
Before I had my own children, I started out teaching reading to high school students in grades 9 - 12.
