I am a Certified Academic Language Therapist and a Licensed Dyslexia Therapist. I have a Masters of Education degree from the University of Texas in Arlington with a triple literacy focus. I am certified by the Texas Education Agency as a Reading Specialist and Master Reading Teacher. Additionally, I am certified in Special Education (K-12), English Language Arts & Reading (4-12) and English as a Second Language. I began my teaching career as a special education teacher but quickly realized how many of my students were dyslexic. In order to assist these students, I sought and obtained training in the Orton-Gillingham method, a multisensory structured language approach, through L.E.A.D (leadabcd.com). I am a member of the Academic Language Therapy Association and the International Dyslexia Association, and I attend their conferences annually. I have been teaching using the OG approach for the past seven years with excellent results. Often, I have had students ask me if I am dyslexic. The answer is, "No." Due to the close relationships I have developed with my students, however, and due to the number of books and research articles I read regarding dyslexia, I closely relate to students with dyslexia and their special needs. I enjoy working with students and am immensely passionate about what I teach. If your child is dyslexic, needs to be taught reading and written language skills, and needs more help than what he/she is receiving at school, please call me. I do work full-time during the day, so tutoring sessions would need to be scheduled for evenings and weekends. I look forward to working with your student and in making a difference in his/her life.
