About Delores

Hi:

My name is Delores W., and I am a retired special education teacher. I am currently certified in the state of Georgia and Virginia in the areas of language arts (reading [decoding and comprehension], grammar, writing and social science. My undergraduate degree is in English education, and I have 20 postgraduate hours in basic and research writing. My past experiences and training have enabled me to teach children from a differentiated reading comprehension approach that resulted in them passing the reading assessment of their state standardized tests.

As it relates to reading decoding and comprehension, research indicates that a student who does not possess adequate decoding or reading comprehension skills will not succeed in school because reading skills are essential across the curriculum: math, social studies, science, and of course reading. Therefore, students must be thoroughly equipped with appropriate word attack skills as well as critical thinking in all aspects of reading comprehension. Concerning writing, it is an integral part of the SAT assessment and daily rigors of classroom learning. Most students when they enter college, are deficient in these skills, and they are therefore assigned to Writing 101. In most cases, their preparatory teachers in elementary, middle, and secondary school had little time to teach them individually the dynamics of effective writing.

I would love to work with school age children as well as adults. I look forward to communicating with you. Thank you in advance.
