Special Needs:


I have been a certified special ed teacher of elementary students for 25+ years, including specialized training for ADD/ADHD students in both a self-contained room and for short-term tutoring. Over the last 25 years, I have successfully taught hundreds of students with ADD and ADHD in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a Texas state certified elementary school and special education teacher with over 25 years of experience teaching in the public school system, in grades 1-6. I am responsible for both self-contained classrooms and one-on-one and resource teaching.


I am a certified elementary teacher able to teach all elementary students, but have always specialized in developing and teaching creative ways to learn phonics and other basic elementary subjects, especially to those with special needs. I have over 20 years of public school teaching experience, and have taught hundreds of children to read, including emphasis on phonics. Now my tutoring business is having this same special focus and it's a joy to help them learn.


Although I enjoy helping with all subjects, I am especially passionate about teaching Reading at all levels. My greatest joy is assisting children in learning to read better, and opening up a whole new world to them.
