I am a Penn graduate with NYC Certificate of Permanent Appointment & NYS Permanent Certificate Education, and I work with the Penn Literacy Network at the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education. A Title 1 Reading Specialist for seven years, my passion has always been to help students learn to read & read to learn, from elementary school to SAT preparation. My approach is student-centered, engaging, and fun. I listen, am patient, and encourage. I work one to one, on foundational skills, homework assignments, test preparation & reading for pleasure. My goal is to inspire curiosity, a love of language & learning in what can be a reading-rich world for each student.
Along with tutoring, I am an education consultant:
“Lois helped me bring my language learning strategies and workshops to the attention of leading charter schools. The roadmap she created, the letters, presentations, and proposals she wrote, convinced me of her deep understanding of my goals to build linguistic intelligence in all children and make a difference in their educational outcomes. Part strategist, part marketing, public relations and communications consultant, she is very effective.” -February 6, 2012, Evelyn R.
