I am a certified elementary teacher and reading interventionist with struggling students. I also have experience working with dyslexic students and have been trained by Neuhaus and Region 4. I use a hands on approach and work with a variety of materials and learning styles to help your child be successful in learning to read and develop a love of reading. Learning should be fun!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Dyslexia

I am trained in working with dyslexic students by Region 4 and also Orton Gillingham techniques through HISD.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am state certified to teach in K-6. Certification is available on request.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL for Harris Coounty Dept. of Education. I am ESL certified and I am fluent in Spanish.

Phonics

I am Texas certified in regular, ESL and bilingual education from early childhood to 6th grade. It is critical for children to learn the sound associated with the letter so they will be able to blend and decode words. Letter names will not help them read, write or spell.

Reading

I work as a reading interventionist with elementary students who are struggling readers with great success. The focus is on phonological awareness, comprehension, vocabulary and fluency.
