English? Reading? Writing? American History? Basic Math? Come learn with a former professor! Experienced with a wide range of learning styles, I will help my students succeed! My Ph.D. is in the humanities. I first began teaching in 1995 and since then I have worked with students from ages eight and up, including university students and adults. I have taught writing at the University level and worked as a writing tutor and writing coach. I have tutored students with dyslexia, ADHD, and brain damage how to read and/or do basic arithmetic.

As a tutor, I am patient and kind. I go over the material as many times as is necessary and keep encouraging the student. I am able to find the right balance between challenging my student and keeping up morale. If something isn’t working right, I will keep trying new techniques until it does. Right now I am tutoring three adults and five children all of different abilities and learning styles. I have a history of considerable success; some of my students have gone on to surpass their classmates. Find out how I can help you or your child to succeed.

Phonics

I have extensive experience in teaching children and adults how to read. I have used the phonics approach in teaching several of my children. I also know enough to determine whether this is the best approach to be used or whether other approaches might be used in addition or instead of phonics. I have taught reading for grades 3-6 as well as for an adult with brain damage. Altogether I have been teaching since 1995 and have been teaching reading with phonics since 2010.
