Each student with Dyslexia requires a specific program, uniquely tailored to her/his personal pattern of strengths and weaknesses. I begin where the student “is”, and skills and concepts are taught and practiced at a speed the student is able to manage. My teaching is based on a multi-sensory approach, because research shows that when people with dyslexia use several senses at the same time, the retention of information is greater. I have had training in several programs for advancing the academic learning for individuals with Dyslexia, and have had great success with programs that use “sound to letter / letter to sound” methods. I use exercises that teach strategies and promote automaticity in word recognition and syllabic-decoding, and teach a method of self-vocalizing while writing which aids in sound-spelling. Because of the nature of this disability, progress comes only through hard work. I am, above all, a compassionate and patient teacher. I recognize the frustration individuals with learning disabilities can have while trying their best to master the skills needed to succeed in school. For that reason, I introduce new and increasingly difficult work with scaffolds that will enable each student to become an independent learner.
I am a Nevada and California Certified Special Education Teacher with 10 years experience in assessment in program and intervention design, classroom accommodations and modifications, and behavior and goal and incentive plans. I am certified as a K-12 Generalist in Nevada and as an Education Specialist in California.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified special education teacher with 8 years of experience in assessment in program and intervention design, classroom accommodations and modifications, and behavior and goal and incentive plans. In addition, for the past 3 years, I have also been employed by a national tutoring company as a 1-on-1 tutor for K-8 students experiencing reading and math difficulties. In this position, I also assess the efficacy of programs and alter those programs for greater academic growth.

Elementary Math

I am a Certified Washoe County School District, Nevada and California K-8 Elementary School Teacher. I have extensive experience in Math Interventions to increase students' academic skills. I am trained in and have taught Everyday Math, Voyager Math, Holt Reinhart Math, the computer-based Study Island, and Algebraic Thinking for Elementary School Students. I help students engage in mathematical thinking to solve real-world problems.


I have been an English, Language Arts, and ELL teacher in Nevada for 8 years. I will help you pass writing assessments, take grammar and English tests with confidence, and improve your speaking and reading comprehension abilities. I have necessary and appropriate materials and methods for individualized instruction.


I teach grammar as a process, the first step of which is exposure to spoken and written language. In this way, the student begins to notice (with help) how grammatical features are used in a piece of text and how an understanding of those features allows an author to convey meaning. This growing understanding of these features and conventions then helps the student to summarize, explain and clarify meaning in spoken and written passages. Then, comes practical application: helping the student to construct text of her/his own, using the features, from the simple, (nouns, verbs), through the complex, (appositives, gerunds) in personal writing. It is only through the process of exposure and noticing, on a regular and consistent basis, that the brain can learn to automatically say what is and is not a correct form of stringing words together. That is when a person has learned "grammar."


I have 10+ years as a Special Education Literacy and Math Specialist. I am certified in assessments which identify all levels of phonics deficits and their associated remediations, including "Words Their Way", "Soar To Success", "Voyager", CeLL, ExCell, Slausson, Boehm, Chall, HM Assessments, Johns IRI, and Whole Language, to name just a few.


I am currently certified in Curriculum Associates Phonics For Reading (all levels), Curriculum Associates CARS and STARS Programs, Read Naturally, AIMSWeb Assessments, SRA Decoding Strategies (all levels), SRA Reading Mastery, H-M Pearson's Soar To Success and Words Their Way, HM Leveled Reading, DRA Assessments, and I have a personal subscription to Reading A-Z, the supplemental program that is used by many schools across the country, including schools in Washoe County.
