About Vivian

I taught in the Stamford public schools for 35 years. I also spent 17 of those years in the gifted department. When I retired, I went back to school and became certified in an Orton Gillingham reading program. I have been privately tutoring reading and math as well as substituting in public and private schools.

My children have all made amazing progress. I can supply you with dozens of references.

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 have been trained to use Orton Gillingham --Preventing Academic Failure (PAF)-- at the Windward School in White Plains. I have taken numerous courses there as well pertaining to the dyslexic child.

I have experience working with children with learning disabilities and am well aware of all the technology available to aid these children.
