Would you like to be more confident when speaking to others in social or academic settings? Would you like to use a stronger vocabulary and improve your grammar, spelling and writing style? My 17 years of experience in the speech and language public school setting, and newly acquired certification in teaching English as a second language, will support your dreams for better communication skills whether you are an elementary, secondary, college student or adult. I've worked with students with learning disabilities, autism, multiple disabilities, augmentative communication needs, and deaf-blindness. Are you a parent looking for communication ideas for activities of daily living? My degree in speech and communication, coursework in technology, and certification in ESL will enable us to work together to find appropriate and practical solutions for your communication needs. I'm a person centered planner with a focus on seeing you be successful in any setting.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I'm a retired speech and language therapist with 20 years experience with elementary students. My background in language provides knowledge of phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, and language development for the K-6th grade level student. In addition, I hold a tutoring certificate from the Pennsylvania Department of Education to tutor reading and math.

English

My experience with speech and language therapy in public schools might be a good match for you. In addition, I have an ESL certification if you are not a native speaker. Even if you speak English, we can practice grammar, vocabulary, and reading strategies.

You can help me decide if we are a good match by sharing your grade level and some details about your goals for learning.

GED

Understanding the questions in the GED is half the battle! My background in language can help you with the vocabulary and study skills needed for success.

Phonics

As a retired speech and language therapist in the public school, I have extensive training in phonemic awareness and phonics teaching approaches. In addition I hold a certificate in tutoring from the Pennsylvania Dept. of Education.

Public Speaking

As a retired speech and language therapist, I have experience teaching pragmatic and suprasegmental speaking skills. I've worked with students on strategies to use voice, volume, eye gaze, intonation and different purposes (persuasive argument, informational, etc.) for speaking.

Reading

I provided speech and language support to elementary age students for 17 years.

Sign Language

As a retired speech and language therapist, I worked with a deafblind student for 9 years. I am a certified WeeHands instructor who teaches parents to teach babies sign language. I have taken three courses on the use of ASL.

Speech

I have a degree in Speech and Language from East Stroudsburg University 1977 and 23 years experience between Montgomery County Intermediate Unit, Bucks County Intermediate Unit, and a private center in Pennsylvania. I recently retired in March, 2013.
