About Martha

Hello, Parents!

A successful reader will be a successful student! I want to join with you in helping your child find that success!

For the past 44 years, I've been teaching reading to children and adults in several settings: in classrooms and in private homes; for 20 of those years I taught adult African women to read English with some becoming teachers themselves. Although I am currently retired, I still have love, patience, and a passion for helping struggling children and adults to overcome their learning disabilities, to reach their goals, and regain their confidence in school or the workplace.

I use an intensive phonics program designed for the following type of child or adult:

1. Those diagnosed with dyslexia or SLD (specific language disability).
2. Those with average or above-average intelligence, no deficits in sight or hearing acuity, but with below-grade-level performance in word attack, reading, and spelling.
3. Those students with problems in visual memory and/or discrimination needing a structured phonetic reading approach and multisensory teaching.

If any of these areas describe your child or an adult learner, please contact me through this website.

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.

Bible Studies

I am a Bible school graduate and was a missionary in Zambia for over 22 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an MA in Elementary Education and have taught for over 40 years in private U.S. schools and overseas.

English

I have taught elementary language arts for over 20 years, subjects such as grammar, reading, comprehension, phonics, spelling, handwriting, creative writing, etc. I like to make learning fun, yet productive work for each student.

Handwriting

I have taught handwriting to illiterate adults in Africa and to elementary children for over 40 years. I am well versed in pre-writing techniques, manuscript and cursive writing forms. Also I stress proper pencil holds and posture.

Phonics

I have taught intensive phonics using the Orton/Gillingham method plus other phonics methods for 40 years and am now retired.

Spelling

I use the Orton/Gillingham phonics/spelling method which will help your son in spelling. Also I like to use creative methods to help children remember spellings.

Martha began with going over the day for the session. It included using several books she brought with her and several we already had. The instruction included statements and question that required a response from either my wife or Martha which in turn required a response from the other. It took a few minutes for my wife to catch on but when she did things went very smooth for the rest of the 2 ho
