Dyslexia

I am a former elementary school teacher with a strong interest in literacy development. I have hundreds of hours of tutoring experience, and I have worked with kindergarten aged students through adults.

I spent two years training and working at a clinic for children and adults with developmental dyslexia. My experience at this clinic convinced me that ALL students can learn to read, regardless of their level of impairment. Based on the work I did there, my tutoring sessions are systematic and individualized. They are also multi-sensory, as recommended by the International Dyslexia Association, focusing on oral motor awareness in addition to auditory and visual cues. This approach has been proven in NIH-funded studies to be effective in the prevention and treatment of reading disorders.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education and 7 years of experience as a classroom teacher. I have experience developing and implementing hands-on lessons in reading, writing, science, math, and social studies for kindergarten through 5th grade students. One of my strengths is the ability to evaluate the learning styles of my students in order to use visual, auditory, and kinesthetic approaches to make lessons meaningful and effective for all types of learners.

Phonics

I am a former elementary school teacher with a strong interest in literacy development. I have specialized training in helping children and adults who have struggled with reading, writing, and spelling. I use a systematic, individualized approach that helps students learn phonics rules and know how and when to apply them.

There are some students who just need an extra boost, while some have legitimate reading disorders. I have worked with the entire spectrum of struggling readers and spellers and believe that all students can be successful if they are taught well.

Study Skills

I have a many years of experience working one on one with students from elementary school through college, helping them plan and organize their work space, their assignments, and their time. Using the individual learning strengths of each student, I teach strategies for identifying the tasks that make up an assignment and the best ways to prioritize those tasks. I work on making sure students understand exactly what the assignment is as well as ways to understand and remember the material. We focus on note taking, reading strategies, and time management.
