About Yvette-Marie

Over 35 years, I have worked to improve the reading and language skills of students who had some difficulty with vocabulary and reading comprehension. I have also spent much of my career working with individuals with learning differences and special needs, to help them achieve independence and confidence. My students range from very young elementary school children to older adults, and I find it thrilling to work with every age group, every population.

The experience of learning to read and write well seems to be the same for all, regardless of age. When students start to get better, there is a sparkle in them that is simply amazing to me.

For over 19 years, I have taught English courses at several colleges in my career. They are as follows: methods and materials courses in reading and English in teacher education courses and reading courses for the state’s EPI (Educations Preparation Institute) courses. As well, I have designed some of the courses myself.

My background in teaching phonics is extensive, as I had taught English and reading in a private high school for students with special needs. The primary methods of phonics instruction were Orton-Gillingham and Wilson methods.

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.

Phonics

I have a Master's degree in Reading, and I have taught students with learning disabilities. These students had severe reading difficulties that included dyslexia. My most effective method for teaching these children was a phonics method known as Orton-Gillingham. I have training in this method of teaching phonics as well as the Barbara Wilson Method.
