About Audrey

Hi! My name is Audrey and I have been teaching children and adults how to become confident readers and writers for most of my adult life. Currently I am a Literacy Specialist/Coach. I work with teachers around what is "best practice" and how to integrate research based intervention and instruction into their classrooms throughout the day. I also work with small groups of children in a variety of ways. I work with students who are struggling to learn to read and write and with students who need to be challenged and extended academically. I have been trained in Reading Recovery and am certified as a Wilson Instructor. I also have training through the Teacher's College Reading And Writing Project, which was developed by Lucy Calkins. I love teaching and I love to instill a love of reading in my students. I am currently working on my CAS in Literacy through the University of Maine at Orono. I have also run my own educational services business which provided services to students of all ages from preschool through high school in one to one settings and in small groups in homework, reading, writing, SAT prep, math, students with learning disabilities, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and helping students with organizing their academic life.

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.

Aspergers

I am a literacy specialist and a classroom teacher. I have worked with students who have aspergers in interventions in reading and writing in the classroom- systematic, structured, explicit, multi-sensory programs, ie: Wilson, S.P.I.R.E, Leveled Literacy Intervention by Fountas and Pinnell, Reading Recovery, and have worked directly 1:1 with aspergers students and in small group settings.
I also have a son who has mild aspergers and he has been very successful in school and in social situations.
I also am trained in the Responsive Classroom and in Collaborative Problem Solving by Ross Green.

Dyslexia

I am a certified Wilson Reading Program tutor which is an explicit, systematic reading program designed for students who have a Learning Disabilities, dyslexia, or a Language based disability. I am also trained in S.P.I.R.E which is another phonics/reading program designed for the same students. I have over 15 years experience in tutoring students with a Learning Disability and or Dyslexia.

I am a certified teacher in the state of Maine K-8. I have my K-12 Literacy Specialist certification through the state of Maine, have my master's degree in education through the University of New England and am enrolled in a CAS Literacy/Coach program through the University of Maine at Orono. I have 23 years teaching experience in the public schools and in the private sector.

I am skilled at and have used the Fountas and Pinnell Phonics and Word Work program.

I am a Literacy Specialist and Literacy Coach. I have been teaching reading to students of all grade levels for 25 years using a balanced literacy approach- using Lucy Calkins Teacher's College programs and using Reading Recovery, Leveled Literacy Intervention, and online reading programs.

SAT Reading

I have taught high school students SAT Reading prep using the Kaplan SAT practice tests. I focus on teaching students strategies to be able to confidently eliminate the wrong choices and know how to "figure out" what the best answer could be. I also help students be able to manage the time they spend on each answer- to move on so they will finish the test with confidence.

Special Needs

I am a certified Wilson Reading instructor, am trained in the S.P.I.R.E. method of teaching reading and writing and have been trained in Reading Recovery. I have worked with students in grades K-6 in the public schools for 23 years. I used to own and run my own business called Learning In Motion Educational Services. I provided tutoring services for many students including those with a Learning Disability and or Dyslexia.

Study Skills

I am a Literacy Specialist and a Literacy Coach K-12. I have my K-8 Teacher's Certification through the state of Maine. I have been teaching students how to study for test prep, homework organization, and SAT prep for 5 years. I currently work with a 22 year old adult who is taking college courses. One of my focuses with her is how to study for exams, quizzes, multiple- choice questions, fill in the blanks, short answer responses and vocabulary understanding within the context of the exam questions. I also help her organizer her calendar to keep up to date on her assignments- time management, check-lists, note-taking, graphic organizers, binder organizing for each subject area, and ways to keep track of assignments and when they are due- for example: a white board in her room with important dates and deadlines, a small pocket notebook for quick class notes and reminders that she looks at every day, electronic calendars in sync with all her devices, along with a paper calendar close to her work space in her room. We also organize and plan the most effective use of her homework space to avoid distraction- desk away from the door and window, files organized, drawers organized with only study supplies, and always a clean desk at the end of each study session so they can be ready to begin fresh the next study session.
