As a parent or student you are looking for a smart, sympathetic and compassionate educator who knows how to help. I have been tutoring for eleven years now. I have spent a great deal of time in school. I have a PhD in Art History, an MFA in Painting and am currently working on a MS in Communication Disorders. I have taught preschool age to Graduate School. My current focus is language disorders. I so enjoy helping individuals of all ages master reading, writing and speaking skills. I also specialize in study skills, exam preparation, portfolio preparation, college counseling, math and science.
I have post-graduate training in Wilson Reading Program, Wilson Foundations, Animated Literacy and Sounds in Motion. Using a combination of these programs plus strategies gleaned from my long professional career, I work with students who struggle with decoding, phonemic awareness, reading comprehension, and dyslexia. I have experience working with ADD/ADHD students and Autism spectrum children and have developed strategies to help these young minds focus on reading and writing.
Initial reading assessment is often important prior to creating an individual plan for treatment. Follow-up materials are provided to the family to work with the young reader between sessions. The program is tailored to meet the child’s individual needs.
Besides being a specialist in Reading for K- 12, I also tutor Math and Science for the Elementary student and Reading, Writing, and Study Skills for the High School and College Student, as well as exam preparation.
