About Valrie

I am a dedicated special education trained and state certified teacher with more than 15 years of local and international teaching experience. I have taught students with a wide range of special needs. Some areas include students with learning disabilities in math and reading, developmentally delayed, autism, intellectual disabilities, and attention deficit disorder.

I have been very successful in students making academic growth while developing their confidence. I align my teaching to the Common Core Standards to assist the students in applying the skills taught in tutoring to their regular school setting.

I have received additional training in Math foundations, Reading Foundations, Orton Gillingham and Letterland. Both Orton Gillingham and Letterland are research based approaches to teaching reading. I apply the skills and strategies on a daily basis when I work with students. I have excellent reviews by my current and past principals on the effectiveness of my teaching. I work well with parents and most importantly my students develop a love for learning.
