About Lori


Bio

As a high school English, journalism, and computer literacy teacher for over 16 years, I spent many hours with students helping them improve their literacy skills; but it was the time spent as director of one-act plays or Odyssey of the Mind coach that really helped me learn to connect with students. Understanding how others communicate and absorb information is key to delivering instruction. Many people have never considered how they learn and what learning style is most effective for them...

As a high school English, journalism, and computer literacy teacher for over 16 years, I spent many hours with students helping them improve their literacy skills; but it was the time spent as director of one-act plays or Odyssey of the Mind coach that really helped me learn to connect with students.

Understanding how others communicate and absorb information is key to delivering instruction. Many people have never considered how they learn and what learning style is most effective for them. Working one-on-one in a tutorial setting allows individuals to communicate in ways that are nearly impossible to achieve in a classroom setting.

Phonics is one method used to develop reading skills by teaching the beginning reader the connection between sound and meaning symbolized by letters and their combinations.
