About Heather

My favorite part of teaching reading has always been the one on one instruction. Teaching a student to read, write, and love stories is one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done. We make alphabet books if we need letter work, we make sticker stories, and we read lots of patterned, leveled stories to build our confidence and skill. I work from what the student already knows to build their knowledge and skills.

I will administer diagnostic tests that will give me an instructional picture of your student so we can start where they are and work from there. I try to tap in to the things that students like in picking reading materials as much as possible. I am patient and will build rapport and establish a safe place for your student to take risks with their reading skills.

I have worked as a Reading Recovery trained Reading Specialist in elementary schools for 9 years. My expertise is in teaching the youngest, struggling readers acquire the keys to become literate and love reading (K-2).

I can't wait to start reading with your little one! Please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons.
