I have tutored students full-time for the past four years in reading, writing, spelling vocabulary, and elementary math. I excel at helping students from elementary - high school with these challenges, and helping them improve their self-esteem and attitudes towards school. I specialize in dyslexia therapy, but I have success with all types of students who struggle with reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, and elementary math.

Reading, writing, spelling and vocabulary challenges don't end with elementary school. I have successfully taken middle schoolers and high schoolers with low reading scores and moved them to grade-level and beyond. I am a certified dyslexia practitioner using the Wilson program, but again, I have helped all types of students, not just students with dyslexia or suspected dyslexia. I can screen for dyslexia as well, if interested.

English spelling is very tricky. I teach spelling using the 6 syllable types, and present the spelling rules in a systematic, cumulative method that builds upon the previous rules taught. If your student is having a hard time sounding out words and memorizing the order of the letters, we work on letter sounds, and spelling logic so that they have tools to sound out words and remember letter order.

I love tutoring students of all ages. I can provide references upon request. I can provide on-line tutoring as well as tutoring out of my home, and the students home. Please contact me with questions.
