About Margaret

My qualifications for teaching reading and dyslexia include training and use of the Orton-Gillingham approach, Barton Reading System, and Lindamood Bell strategies. Using specific teaching methods, students who struggle with decoding, fluency, spelling, comprehension, and writing can be successfully helped to overcome these problems. Individual lesson planning is provided for each student, according to his or her demonstrated strengths and weaknesses. It is important work that I do; I would be pleased to accomplish the needed help and remediation with your child.

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 trained in the Orton-Gillingham Approach, Barton Reading program, and Lindamood Bell strategies. In addition, I have completed three courses through the Dyslexia Training Institute in California. Currently, I am carrying out remediation with several dyslexic children. I will be happy to discuss your child's needs, answer your questions, and provide parent references.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a K-6 licensed teacher in Colorado and have helped many students learn and grow in their reading, math, and writing skills. I enjoy helping struggling students to understand difficult concepts and make progress in their needed skills!

Reading

My qualifications for teaching reading include experience with reading students and training in the remediation of reading problems, including the Orton-Gillingham Approach, Lindamood Bell strategies, and the Barton Reading program.

Special Needs

As a CO licensed teacher, I have successfully tutored several students with special needs: Asperger's, ADHD, FASD, bipolar, and Down's Syndrome. My teaching practice has been greatly influenced by the writings of Dr. Mel Levine, about the neurodevelopmental aspects of learning. At this time, four of my long-time students are special needs students. I especially love helping these students, to assess and strengthen their specific areas of weakness, as well as building lifelong learning strategies into these children.
