About Helen

I am a highly qualified educational professional with 20 years as a Public School Teacher, Reading Specialist, and Reading Coach for Title I Reading Services. Also, I traveled over four years as a Reading Consultant for a National Company training teachers in Multi-Sensory Learning, and Orton-Gillingham Certified.

My desire is to help students reach their true potential through a multi-sensory reading approach resulting in attaining school district goals with regard to reading readiness. I am a passionate educator and want to make learning fun. I, also, have a love for learning so constantly reading myself, consulting, traveling or taking classes.

My qualifications include a Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist and an Ed. D. in Curriculum and Administration. I have ultimate respect for students, warm and accessible, enthusiastic, caring, maintain professionalism and possess a love for learning.

Please contact me if you have a son or daughter that struggles in reading. I would love to be their tutor and supporter.

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.

Phonics

As an Orton-Gillingham trained professional, I have taught Phonics for many years and also trained teachers in Phonics. My Reading Specialist Degree (Master's) also included classes where we used Phonics. I also use Phonics in tutoring sessions when a student is found deficient.

Piano

I have a Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in Music Education. I also taught piano for 15 years prior to finishing my Master's as a Reading Specialist and Doctorate in Administration and Curriculum.
