About Annie

Hello! I am a reading specialist, consultant and private tutor. My love of literacy and teaching comes from working side by side with students and parents to achieve success for the student in and out of the classroom. I taught language arts and literacy in the classroom for over 20 years but have recently started my own business as a consultant, tutor and curriculum developer. I am excellent at identifying gaps in the reading achievement skills and designing an individual plan for closing those gaps (especially for the upper elementary and middle school students). I specialize in phonics, fluency, word study (vocabulary) and comprehension but am not limited to those areas. I am happy to work cooperatively with teachers and schools to support learning in the classroom. One of my goals for each session is to keep the student engaged, motivated and challenged without feeling overwhelmed or discouraged. I feel so fortunate to have a career that allows me to make a significant and positive impact on so many lives.

I have a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on reading. I am trained in the Literacy First process which is designed to close any achievements gaps in reading and to also accelerate achievement. Students with IEP's or 504 plans are well within my realm of experience. For the past 10 years, I have specialized in working with students who are below grade level in reading. I am comfortable teaching all areas of literacy for students in grades 1 through 6.

I am trained in Reading Pathways, Diebles and AIMSweb for phonics instruction. I have also written phonics curriculum for use in elementary and middle grades.

I am also more than able to work with students in the areas of spelling and study skills. Helping with executive functioning is skills is also possible.

I am generally available for tutoring Monday through Thursday during the school day or evening until 7 pm. I am flexible on scheduling. My base rate is $60/hour for an one-on-one session but can vary depending on services needed. I do offer a discount for small group session of two -four students. I have skill practice packages available - ask me for more details. I look forward to talking with you about helping your student find success.
