About Joanne

I have just retired from full time work after 34 years of facilitating learning with teachers and children of all ages. My degrees and experience have focused most recently, working with students and families who have language learning challenges and the emotional components that come along with them. Emphasis is on a meta-cognitive approach, helping students to understand and to articulate about their learning profile. Strengthening their strengths is as important as strengthening their weaknesses. All students can learn if they have the support they need. I am experienced, enthusiastic and warm and have the tools that can give you support.

I especially enjoy working with young children to promote reading development. As an early childhood specialist, I think early intervention is crucial to language learning. Games, songs and working in multisensory ways have proven successful. I am a certified Orton Gillingham Instructor and have worked with students K-8 using these tools since 2008. I recently moved to Brunswick from Jamison, PA to be near my own children. I am excited to connect with the learning community here and look forward to helping students one on one. In retirement, I would like to focus on working with young students (K-4) throughout the year who may be struggling in language/reading/writing.

I look forward to meeting you to explore the joy of language and all the ways you learn best.

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.

Dyslexia

I have been teaching reading in the classroom K-8 for 34 years and in 2008 obtained Orton Gillingham certification. I have tutored as well, over the summers since then, and would like to connect to the learning network here in ME to help students strengthen their language and reading skills.
