About Maureen

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.
