As an educator, I have had over 30 years of teaching elementary grades, training teachers, designing reading curriculum and directing a major school district's reading program. In addition, I have written over 30 reading books and teacher's manuals for grades K-6.

In tutoring children I diagnose their needs and design lessons so each child will improve their reading skills and achieve their full potential.

I also provide multiple opportunities for children to master their skills in phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, grammar, and writing.

My lessons include practice pages for students to use between lessons.

As and elementary school teacher I also provided private after school tutoring lessons so students could accomplish all the skills for their grade level. I also trained other teachers on techniques for providing private tutoring lessons. After receiving my Master's degree, in reading specialization. I was hired to conduct teacher's training workshops around the country for teacher's utilizing a new reading series in grades k-6..

In my evaluation of each individual student's needs I diagnose phonics, grammar and comprehension skills. Then I design material to help them learn. I get to know the student's academic needs and adjust the lessons so they can achieve success. Over the years I have designed programs and written textbooks and workbooks that I have used to help children succeed.

My love is to tutor children on a one-to-one basis with the goal to have them succeed in school. I continue to write educational materials for two publishing companies. A list of my published reading textbooks for teachers and children are available upon request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Great tutor in writing

Dolores is a very organized teacher with extensive teaching experience. My son made progress in writing after tutored by her for one and half month. She also provides good practice homework in between tutor class.

Chen, 9 lessons with Dolores

Patient, Resourceful & Intentional

She went over vocabulary and helped my daughter with sentence structure. She also left my daughter homework to do it at her own pace prior to next meeting to help her work on sentences. She test my daughter to learn which is the best way she learns, she has looked over homework my daughter is getting from teacher to best be able to help her! Ms. Dolores is very intentional and am very happy with her tutoring my daughter.

Terrific reading and writing tutor!

Ms. Dolores has been a wonderful tutor to my son for the last several months. She is very patient, kind, and encouraging. She has the learning curriculum for my son's grade and teaches to that, which is very helpful. She is prepared each week with a lesson, the tools, homework, and her own books that she provides for my son to work on every week. He is always excited to work on his online assignments. She makes learning fun, interesting, and no pressure! We truly appreciate all her help and would definitely recommend her.

Perpared, Kind, Encouraging

Dolores is very impressive tutor, well educated, kind and very well prepared. She brings a lot of different tools with her to help the kids and make it interesting. She understands that not all kids learn the same way and has different tricks to help them.

Debra, 1 lesson with Dolores

My child easily engaged with her.

Dolores was not only prompt in responding to my inquiry. My husband and I were seeking a tutor who could work with our daughter to maintain the skills she learned (so as not to regress), as well as prepare her for Kindergarten. Dolores was well qualified. Upon meeting her she was well prepared and my daughter was easily engaged. My daughter cannot wait until she meets with Miss Dolores again :)
