I owned and taught in my alternative school, Hope School in Tacoma, Washington, from the first year we were certified as a private school in 1986 until the school closed in 2010. Students from prekindergarten to high school were enrolled. Special needs students were mainstreamed. Class sizes were small with a maximum ratio of one teacher to twelve students, and emphasis was on a highly individualized educational program with equal focus on the emotional, social and physical growth needs of each student. In my tutoring effort, I used the Slingerland Reading Program, most specifically for dyslexic students. I am a registered tutor in this method at the Slingerland Institute in Bellevue, Washington having done my training through Seattle Pacific University.

Phonics is best mastered with the presentation of short vowel sounds, followed by long vowel sounds, with blends and consonant digraphs being offered upon mastery of the vowels. This method is supported by the Modern Curriculum Press Reading Series. I used this method for five years in kindergarten and all students were reading by January.
Caring and helpful — My son had been recently diagnosed as being dyslexic.
