I teach dyslexic children with the Barton Reading and Spelling System. Dyslexia is the reason a bright child has a difficult time learning to read, spell, and write. After spending many years in the education field I found that some children, beyond first and second grade, still have difficulties learning to read. Some of these children are dyslexic. I developed an interest in teaching dyslexic students. Dyslexic students I tutor are becoming successful readers, spellers and writers.
I received my first degree at Oregon State in Speech Therapy. I went back to school later to earn my Teaching Degree at the University of Oregon. I have kept up with educational standards with university classes, seminars and workshops.
I am a part time reading and math teacher and a dyslexic teacher. I love working with children. I teach reading with a phonic based approach, and every lesson includes a phonic lesson, a comprehension skill, and a vocabulary lesson.
When I teach math I focus on computation, concept and problem solving skills.
I have been a speech therapist and work with children with speech articulation, fluency, voice, and language disabilities.
Using interesting and stimulating methods of teaching helps the student want to learn. I value each student and want to help them be successful.
