About Cindy

I am a reading specialist with over 30 years teaching experience ranging from middle school to college. I have supported the instruction of SPED, ELL, GED and RTC placed students requiring academic support. As a newly retired teacher, I was fully trained in Common Core practices, and the application and interpretation of close reading, and formative and summative assessments. In conjunction with the current focus on the comprehension of non-fiction text, I have provided direct instruction to scaffold lessons in support of the cognitive development of higher order thinking skills. Additionally, I have the skill and training to assist students needing instruction in expository, or other written forms of expression.

I respond to the individual learner with sensitivity, adaptability, and humor. It is important for me to establish a friendly rapport and work to understand the best learning approach that works with the student. With patience, a smile, and positive time markers. I will provide direct instruction when needed, but will also guide the learner to guide academic independence.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Dyslexia

I am a certified reading specialist trained to provide explicit and direct instruction to dyslexic students. With over 30 years of teaching experience in both a public and private educational school system, I have the knowledge and skill to address, support, and promote the learning of the dyslexic reader/student.
My knowledge, experience, patience, and compassion are necessary components that make me a qualified instructor for dyslexic students.

English

My undergraduate degree was a B.S in English, in addition to the Master Degree in Reading. Subsequently, I have additional course work study and experience working with a broader range of LD students.
I have substantial classroom teaching experience with the middle school. In previous years, I have published some articles. I would hope to provide support to aid the development of stronger written expression as well as strengthen reading comprehension.

Reading

I obtained my M.S. in Reading and Language Arts. I have 18 post graduate Special Education credits.

Writing

I have been an instructor for many years and will bring that experience to my instruction.
I have expansive training and experience in the Reader's-Writer's Workshop model.
I have been trained and my instructional practices for three years were Common Core focused and implemented.
