About Claudia

Dear Student,

I am a highly qualified reading instructor who has successfully increased the reading levels of elementary, middle, high school, and college students by one to two grade levels. My position as a reading specialist and member of the International Reading Association provided the opportunity for me to share current methods of reading strategies with students. I am able to teach a student how to use phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension strategies to read written content. In addition, the student will learn how to use critical reading to interpret content and engage in independent reading to become a stronger reader.

As a I child, I enjoyed visiting the library to find and read good books. I still visit the library to find exceptional texts, and I also encourage my students to read independently when they are not studying at school. I believe that it is necessary to make the reading process inviting. I intend to integrate contemporary and classic texts into instruction to help you become successful with reading text.

I look forward to meeting and working with you!
