About Karl

I have 15+ years experience as a reading specialist/interventionist in the public school setting. During my teaching career, I have successfully worked with hundreds of at-risk students. First, I diagnose each student to determine what skills need to be addressed. Then I set specific goals for each student, followed by multi sensory instruction that unlocks literacy. Finally, I incorporate frequent progress monitoring to determine if the student is on track to meeting his/her goals.

Based on their needs, students work on the following skills: phonemic awareness, phonics, spelling, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Students who complete my program leave with a strong foundation.

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.

English

Based on 25 years of experience as a public school teacher, I am highly qualified to tutor students in English. I also have my undergraduate degree in language arts and my master's in elementary education. With that said, I have the experience and knowledge to tutor in English/ELA.

Phonics

I have 45+ hours in the Orton-Gillingham methodology. O-G is a multisensory, systematic, structured, sequential, phonics-based, direct instruction teaching system. This system is especially effective for those students who have struggled to learn through traditional approaches.

Reading

I have 13 years of experience as a reading specialist. During this time I have successfully helped hundreds of at-risk students to become more literate. I first diagnose each student to determine what skills are missing. I then design an intervention program that focuses on remediation using multisensory techniques that unlock literacy.

Spelling

I have 13 years experience helping students become better spellers. I use multisensory techniques that teach students to first say the sound of each phoneme. Students then repeat the sound of the phoneme as they write the letter(s) that represent it. This method assures that words are spelled correctly.
