Bio

Having taught in the classroom in Public Schools, I have been trained in multi-sensory instructional teaching strategies.

I have a Master's in Education from the University of Denver. As a patient and skilled educator with many years of experience, I have attained strong results in reading, writing and spelling skills with elementary age students. Having taught in the classroom in Public Schools, I have been trained in multi-sensory instructional teaching strategies. In addition, I am able to modify or integrate the regular classroom teacher's lessons into my own tutoring plans.

For the past year I have provided individual lessons in reading and writing strategies to several elementary age students. I believe that because of my flexibility and patience, I have been successful in engaging children who struggle with academic skills. In addition, I have a "bag of tricks" that helps children stay involved with the lesson. These include contracting for specific reinforcers, a prize box, and much praise for effort.

I have been trained and have implemented methods of the Wilson system for teaching reading for the last ten years. Wilson is a research-based multi-sensory system for teaching reading decoding and spelling for the student identified with dyslexia or significant decoding deficits. Lessons for the phonetic basis of words are provided so the student has a specific method for reading and spelling. No longer does the child just guess or struggle with the written code of the English language.
