I love to read. There is nothing like sitting down to read some Edgar Allen Poe, Jack London, or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I have yet to teach reading or literature, but with my college work, I know it is only a matter of time. There are so many great works of fiction and non-fiction.

I have been teaching reading to all levels of native and non-native speakers for the past 10 years. With all my students, I use both bottom-up and top-down approaches to increase both speed and accuracy and overall comprehension. I also include instruction in sentence structure, vocabulary, and decoding where appropriate. I have structured 16- and 10-week classes as well as one-on-one tutoring sessions spanning several months and have a record of success in all these formats.
Jessica Q.
I received my undergraduate degree at Yale and trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading, literacy, spelling, and written expression, and have years of experience in tutoring students at all grade levels. The Orton-Gillingham approach (OG) is the gold standard of teaching literacy. Because it trains students to use the entire brain to learn, it is also useful in teaching math.I love working with students, particularly the ones who come to me with special challenges. The amazing part is turning the challenges into gifts.
