About Vicki

Reading therapy offers students a sequential, cumulative, and comprehensive approach to teaching reading. This method is designed to especially help students with dyslexia, but can aid anyone struggling with reading. Some concepts emphasized are the 44 speech sounds, alphabet, syllable types, syllable division patterns, structural analysis, Latin roots and Greek combining forms as well as comprehension strategies.

With 13 years' experience in this method (as a Certified Academic Language Therapist for the past 10) in individual and group settings, in homes and in schools, and with a wide array of ages, I offer hope for those who are discouraged by past failure! With the right method anyone can learn to read.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an elementary school teacher since 1976. I also hold a master's degree in reading through the University of Central Arkansas (1984). I am trained as an Academic Language Therapist and have assisted scores of struggling readers since 1997.

Phonics

As a classroom teacher I have taught mainly in the lower elementary grades and in schools that emphasized the importance of a good foundation in phonics. Although no longer a classroom teacher, I am trained as an Academic Language Therapist. We are trained in intensive phonics and are generally quite successful in helping struggling readers.
