About Kristen

Hello! My name is Kristen T. I am currently an elementary special education teacher teaching reading, writing, and math. I teach with a strong focus on phonics skills, spelling, and writing. I enjoy teaching children from PreK-4th grade. I am a proficient user of Orton-Gillingham, a multi-sensory literacy approach. The Orton-Gillingham program uses multi-sensory techniques, focusing on auditory, kinesthetic, and visual, along with the structure of the English language. The items that I teach include: phonemes and morphemes, such as prefixes, suffixes, and roots; common spelling rules are introduced as well. This approach is beneficial not only for children with dyslexia, but for all learners. Often Orton-Gillingham is interpreted as a methodology only meant for reading remediation; however, the multi-sensory component impacts all children. The uniqueness of this type of instruction is that it allows me to capitalize on an individual child’s dominant learning modality while delivering instruction that will strengthen the remaining learning pathways.

I also enjoy teaching math and having training in the "Daily 3" for Mathematics. I use the "Daily 3" in my classroom and carry the ideas into tutoring. It helps children develop independence, stamina, and accountability in Math. The framework adapts to district-adopted curriculum and state mandates. It focuses on strategies used within the Common Core and helps each child develop a sense of independence, teamwork, and love for Math! I plan to utilize my experience in all subject areas as well as my knowledge of best teaching practice to help your child reach his or her best potential!
