About Stacy

I have been tutoring struggling readers for over 2 years. Recently, I completed training and received certification in the Orton Gillingham Reading Teacher program. The OG methodology is an instructional approach that is multisensory, language-based, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive and flexible. It is intended to help those who struggle with reading, spelling, and writing.

I love the written word. I love how it opens the world up to us and gives us access to things we might otherwise never experience. Tutoring children (anyone, in fact) in reading is something that I absolutely love doing. There is nothing more rewarding than watching someone who could not read learn the English language. The look on their face is priceless. My goal is to help as many as I can in mastering the English language.

Every lesson that is done has grammar, reading and vocabulary elements in it. In order to be successful at reading, spelling and writing, proper grammar needs to be incorporated. An understanding of the meaning of language is necessary in order to fully understand the English language.

I have a deep understanding of the relationship between the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. While we have 26 letters in the alphabet, there are 44 sounds and 70 common spellings. I teach children each of these using all three learning pathways - visual, auditory and kinesthetic-tactile.

My thorough teaching of the English spelling rules and generalizations make me a great tutor for your child (or anyone else)! I teach the spelling rules and generalizations, as well as their exceptions, in a manner that makes it easier for your child (or you!) to master. All rules are done in a cumulative manner so each lesson builds upon itself.

Please contact me with any questions you may have. I will contact you as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you or your student!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Phonics

In addition to my Master's degree in Education, I received certification in the Orton Gillingham Teacher methodology on July 2, 2015 after completing a years' training and tutoring in the methodology. This program stresses total emphasis on symbol-to-sound and sound-to-symbol associations. I also use Barton Reading and Spelling phonic associations as a teaching tool. In order to reinforce phonic instruction, I utilize such methods as tracing and naming letters and sounds, sky writing and naming, using letter tiles and manipulations while making sounds, etc.
