I am a certified teacher with 15 years teaching experience, 13 in Reading Intervention and 6 in Dyslexia instruction.
I begin with a thorough assessment of each student to assess their reading deficits, and determine a reading level at which to begin. I am able to assess for dyslexia characteristics and tendencies and work with students accordingly. I use a variety of techniques with each student, including manipulatives, computer programs, games, and leveled reading texts. As the student progresses, their reading level is gradually increased until they are reading at grade level. I do not have a one size fits all approach to tutoring, realizing that every student is different and unique. I custom fit my tutoring to each student to give them exactly what they need to progress.
I have had excellent success working with students in this manner, and can show previous student progress over the course of a school year if desired.
I was a Dyslexia/Reading Intervention Specialist in the Pasadena ISD in Pasadena TX for six years. I received my dyslexia training through PISD along with some classes offered through Neuhaus in Houston and a workshop offered through Scottish Rite Hospital in Dallas TX.
My training included assessing for dyslexia as well as dyslexic tendencies and characteristics, and then working with the students to help them compensate/overcome their reading difficulties.
I am certified in the state of Texas to teach grades 1 - 8. I have taught 3rd, 5th, and 6-8th grade reading improvement.
I worked for Sylvan Education Solutions (Sylvan in Schools) for 7 1/2 years, where I was trained in the teaching of phonics. I use several methods with the students including oral, computer and written lessons.
I have taught 6th through 8th grade reading improvement and was a Dyslexia/Reading Intervention Specialist in the Pasadena ISD. In addition I was a reading instructor for Sylvan Education Solutions where I worked with students to improve their reading skills. In total I have 14 years experience in teaching remedial reading, and 6 years experience working with dyslexic students.
I have taught spelling for a number of years to children with dyslexia, as well as third and fifth graders. I have used a multi-sensory approach as well as the traditional approach. I am currently taking a class in Scientific Spelling to further help students with spelling difficulties.
I have taught vocabulary for a number of years to both on grade level and below grade level students. Vocabulary instruction is both beneficial in reading and writing. The larger vocabulary a person has, the better his/her reading and writing ability.
While employed in Pasadena ISD as a Dyslexia teacher, I spent time working with the students on their writing skills as well as their reading skills. Also, having taught 3rd and 5th grades, we worked on writing skills so the students would be prepared for the more intensive writing they would be doing on their state writing tests in higher grades. Writing, as all other subjects builds upon itself, with the student making progress from year to year.
She made learning fun for my daughter — Kerri was a good reading tutor. She was patient with my daughter and had a variety of learning tools such as computer games, board games, flash cards, worksheets and just plain reading. She was always very prompt and flexible in scheduling. I believe Kerri's tutoring kept my daughter from regressing over the summer so now she is ready to do her best in 6th grade. I would recommend Kerri. ...
