About Maureen

My work life has always been about written communication. Early on I was pulled into the medical secretary field by my ability with medical terminology and my interest in medicine. I spent years transcribing important patient reports for doctors, making sure that they were done professionally and accurately.

In recent years, I began tutoring elementary school aged children who were having difficulty with reading and language arts. I have found this work to be very rewarding and the children I have tutored have made excellent progress. I decided to get specialized training in a program designed for kids with dyslexia. The system I use for working with dyslexic kids is amazingly effective. I am particularly proud of my work in this specialized field.

My love of, and patience with, children is my most important qualification. I am currently tutoring privately, as well as for "No Child Left Behind" services for underprivileged children. I will supply references upon request.

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.

Dyslexia

I am currently tutoring three private students with dyslexia. I use a specialized program for teaching these students, which emphasizes better skills with phonics. I use a well-known and widely respected program called the Susan Barton Reading & Spelling System, which is an Orton-Gillingham influenced multisensory systematic phonics program. Students with dyslexia have difficulty hearing individual sounds in language clearly. They also have confusion recognizing some letters that appear similar. The Barton program does an amazing job in helping the student to overcome these handicaps.

My students have done extremely well and I am thrilled to be able to help them improve this vital ability for learning.
