About Maggie

I have a Professional Florida Teacher Certification and I have been teaching reading and tutoring for 25 years; parents will usually see a change in three weeks from a child not wanting to pick up a book to picking a book up and wanting to read. "That "aha" moment when a problem makes sense is quite satisfying and to be there with the student when it happens is a privilege."

I use a mnemonic approach to reading that incorporates a language based and general education curriculum. Once you know your students' special strengths, design strategies that utilize those abilities. If a student is great at drawing but has trouble reading, let her illustrate her vocabulary words. If a student shows gifts in knitting but doesn't understand place value, have him design a fabric art piece by knitting rows of 10. There are thousands of ideas and projects that can be created by combining a student’s strengths with a learning deficit.
