Hi!
Thank you so much for stopping by my profile today to learn about my background. Did you know that the human brain was never meant to read in the first place? Interesting, isn't it? Of all the things our brain does, reading is the number one most challenging thing it does for us every day (especially in English), yet most of us take it so much for granted. Language is nothing more than sound. Our alphabet has 26 letters in it, yet, it has 44 sounds! Each of those letters has a...

Hi!
Thank you so much for stopping by my profile today to learn about my background. Did you know that the human brain was never meant to read in the first place? Interesting, isn't it? Of all the things our brain does, reading is the number one most challenging thing it does for us every day (especially in English), yet most of us take it so much for granted. Language is nothing more than sound. Our alphabet has 26 letters in it, yet, it has 44 sounds! Each of those letters has a combination of sounds, equating to a word when said and read correctly. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is where the disconnect mostly happens.
As a Certified Dyslexia Therapist, I can assess where specific struggles begin in the reading process.
First and foremost is that my style is unique or perhaps unconventional. I treat each child individually in their classes. I model every lesson to the best learning method for my student.
What does that mean? Well, people all learn differently. Some are tactical learners, others are visual learners, while others are auditory learners, yet others are linear learners or a combination of thereof. We must find a suitable method to introduce the lesson for proper "sound" retention. This "sound" and the right assistive technology will work wonders and bring your child up to and even above grade level in record time! It can work wonders in math too.
I would love to help your child learn to love to read, write, and enjoy math. All I ask is to commit to at least one hour a visit twice a week for optimal performance. Anything less will be lost in the time left between classes. We trust the process.

Marketing

For over 25 years in Sales and Marketing, I have not only seen but lived the change from the Yellow Pages to Social Media and beyond. Because of the Sales business' I've been in I have had to not only keep up with the times, but be AHEAD of the times! I have taken mini-courses, live seminars, college classes, Chamber of Commerce trade classes, and local business meets with regard to marketing, and how to more effectively use today's social media to our utmost advantage. Learn who our audience is and what area of purchased time would give us the best ROI in the quickest time frame. Or Is a quick ROI really what we need at a specific point in our physical year? Another Marketing tool to think about.. In the seminars, webinars, leadership classes, Chamber of Commerce Keynote functions focusing on Marketing in person, on flyers, via telephone, displays, display ads, print ads, television or radio ads, social media ads and Podcasting. and so much more, Marketing is an enormous part of our economy and a business' make or break point in many cases. It has to be done, but it must be done with wisdom and at swiss watch timing. Timing is EVERYTHING in business, especially when it comes to marketing. Currently I run a business, and must market myself. I use many of these skills and method of marketing and Podcasting for informational marketing in my line of work for my clients. Information is power! I have been a member of many organizations such as the Better Business Bureau, Local Chamber's, Professional Women Chapters. Here I have had to make presentations, speeches, sales pitches, and run point on several committees with authority, confidence, and maintain an appropriate time frame to keep my audience's attention. Know when to have props, or leave behinds, or visuals to aid in bringing home my point. I believe these experiences make me fully qualified to assist a student in Marketing.

Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

I was born with Dyslexia, and struggled with it all through school, college and much of my work career. Where my parents thought I was lazy and not placing my full attention, or just didn't care, I was punished and had many parent/teacher conferences about my performance. I began working at the age of 18. I lost a few jobs because I made mistakes with overages or shortages on my cash draw that I couldn't explain. One day a manager took interest in me because the mistakes I made were consistent. She asked me several questions, and asked me to read up on it, and to be tested. I tested positive. After being tested, I learned how to, "RE-learn" what was taught to me in school. This time I got it right! For the first time learning was fun, interesting and I understood it! What I didn't understand at the time was-why-I was comprehending the material so well and so fast. Mostly because I didn't care. I didn't want to look a gift horse in the mouth. I just accepted it, and ran with it. Years later, I began to study more about Dyslexia, and continue to do so. I understand more now. Today, now in my later years, I see the difference, I live the difference everyday. Because I have two children. Both equally bright and wanting to learn. But they are on two very opposite levels, and are 7 years apart. My eldest is an honor roll student and has been all her school career. My youngest struggles with spelling, writing, short term memory, organization, sequencing, guesses a lot, tends to "give up" vs. being persistent. His sister never did these things. Without even testing him, I know in my heart I've past on this gene to him. So I teach him and other children like him differently. I use different types of physically engaging tasks to get the lesson through and keep it in. Because that is one of the symptoms of dyslexia, “short term memory loss”. My goal is to keep the lesson inside. So, I use tactics that become pictures inside their mind, that are meaningful, unforgettable, real life, real situati

Excellent tutor for our son

Jessie V. is an excellent tutor for our eight year old son who struggles with reading and attention. Jessie really understands the way his mind works and his need for a multi-sensory approach. He has made significant progress with her in a short period of time and enjoys the lessons even on the days where he initially doesn't want to participate. She is masterful at adjusting to his needs and making things interesting for him. We are very pleased with the results!
