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.

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.
I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham Approach, Barton Reading program, visual processing methods, 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.
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!
As a CO licensed teacher with several years of experience tutoring students in Elementary Math, I have successfully helped many students to understand concepts, master skills, and overcome a fear of math. I regularly work with first through sixth grade students on number sense, math facts, addition, subtraction with borrowing, fractions, story problems, multiplication, long division, and prealgebra. Using a variety of methods suited to the student, it remains a thrill to see students comprehend and master their needed skills.
I have helped several students, whose first languages are Spanish, Russian, and Japanese, to make sense and obtain mastery of the English language. With patience and skill, I determine a student's level of knowledge and consistently build and increase his or her understanding of English.
As a CO certified teacher and a long-time tutor, I have successfully educated three students in a homeschool setting. I provided instruction with each of these learners in subjects that parents did not feel confident to teach. These subjects included elementary and middle school math, reading, writing, dyslexia, dyscalculia, and various learning issues.
I have many years of successful experience in teaching phonics. I hold a BA in Elementary Education and a current CO teaching license in Elementary Education. As a long-term teacher and tutor, I have enabled many students, with a variety of learning issues, to learn to read. The primary curriculum I use for teaching phonics is the Barton Reading and Spelling System.
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, Davis Dyslexia methods, and the Barton Reading program.
As a CO licensed teacher, I have successfully tutored several students with special needs: Dyslexia, Aspergers, 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 strategies into these learners.
