I have had two successful tutoring experiences. The first one was with a friend's daughter heading off to middle school just after being diagnosed with dyslexia. The second was last year, when I taught a homebound kindergarten student who was also bilingual.
I have my master's degree in educational technology, and undergraduate degree from Metropolitan State College in Denver where I graduated with honors. I majored in behavioral science and minored in biology. With an additional 36 credit hours, I graduated with my degree in elementary education.
Depending on the needs of the learners, I can create lessons or curriculum based on student interest. I have used Wilson Foundations, Fontas Pinnel Leveled Literacy intervention, among others, to meet the needs of all learners. I especially like working with students who struggle with dyslexia and have used online programs like Lexia with success.

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 a special educator for k-12 moderate needs. I like working to increase attention and build persistence. I build in to lessons and movement to allow for increased memory retention.
I have read Overcoming Dyslexia. It recommends Wilson Reading as a successful curriculum. I have trained and used Wilson in addition to Lexia. I have tutored dyslexic students successfully. I have my special education endorsement. I enjoy teaching decoding and discussing literature.
I am certified elementary school teacher with an endorsement in special education for moderate needs. I have training in Wilson Reading and Handwriting Without Tears. I am left handed and have excellent penmanship.
I am certified in special education by the state of Colorado. Teaching dyslexic and ADHD students needs to be individualized. Tutoring would allow me to plan for building on the skills and interests of the student. I love teaching and learning.
