I am a licensed teacher (Elementary, Secondary, Learning/Behavior Specialist) with a wealth of experience teaching and tutoring students for over 25 years. I have an MA in Special Education. I have taught in public schools and private tutoring centers. I have a great deal of experience with the Wilson Language System, an Orton-Gillingham approach that greatly increases the reading ability of dyslexic students and other students struggling with reading. I also tutor in Common Core math skills, helping students develop number sense, and I help students apply study skills in content area courses.

I am patient and encouraging. I use a variety of materials and techniques and include educational games and activities to make learning fun.

I enjoy helping students reach their potential as students and increase their confidence. I would be grateful for the opportunity to help your child increase skills and enjoy learning.

Wilson Reading

My son is making great progress through the Wilson Reading program with Maureen as his guide. In just a few weeks, I've already seen great gains and more confidence in my son's reading.

Good start

Our first lesson went well Maureen tested my daughter to assess where she was using some fun games which my daughter liked. She is enthusiastic about her next lesson so I am happy.

Knowledgable, patient, and effective

Maureen is knowledgeable with the 2nd grade curriculum and familiar with the Common Core standards. She has strengthened my child's base understanding, and is now helping him grasp 3rd grade concepts. I have seen a marked improvement in his math test scores! Thanks Maureen!
