It has been my privilege to tutor students for the past 18 years. I have volunteered in the RISD school district, worked for 2 agencies, and now work independently. I do not tutor homework problems, but rather, I take the student back to the basics of reading skills, and help students relearn how to read, this time, correctly. Most of my students have some learning differences such as dyslexia, auditory processing issues, Asperger's syndrome and other issues. I have worked with students as young as 5 and as old as 47+. I tailor my curriculum to the needs of the individual. The only thing I assume is that he or she is intelligent and will succeed. Not long ago, a 9 year old student was failing at a local private school. After several months of work, he is now on the A-B Honor Roll. This was HIS work, with my skills methods giving him confidence to try.
