About Ann

I am a retired special education teacher with 30 years of elementary classroom experience. My favorite part of teaching was helping struggling students with reading and math. It was gratifying to watch them build success as they gained confidence in their abilities.
The most effective instruction is research based. I have been trained in the Orton-Gillingham Approach of teaching reading. It is a systematic and explicit teaching of reading skills. Through multisensory techniques, a child will develop his/her own unique learning style.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a current Kansas teaching certificate and have more than 30 years of experience. During the summer of 2010, I completed the Kansas Reading First Academy. I attended the KU Learning Strategies during the summer of 2011. To become an effective reading tutor, I am completing my training and internship in the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading remediation. It has been developed to help children with dyslexia, but the methods are effective for all struggling readers.

Phonics

I use the Orton-Gillingham method of reading instruction. Lessons include the direct teaching of phonics (matching letters to sounds); phonological awareness activities (identifying and manipulating individual sounds); and structure of the English language(syllable patterns, prefixes suffixes, roots, and spelling rules. Lessons are multisensory, structured, and sequential. This method was developed for children with dyslexia, but it can be effective for all children with reading challenges.

Study Skills

I worked as a special education teacher for 25 years. One of my responsibilities was to help students with study skills. I helped them to organize assignments, maintain an assignment calendar, take notes and to read textbooks for understanding.

Patient tutor

Ann does great with my 6 year old son who is often argumentative and not willing to work when we first arrive. She encourages him and makes the lesson fun!
