I am a NC certified teacher with a degree in Elementary Education with 25+ years in teaching and tutoring. While working on graduate studies in Reading, I found a passion of working with students who struggle in Reading--especially children who are Dyslexic. I continue to keep abreast of all current ways to help children learn and be successful in and out of the classroom.
I am an Orton-Gillingham Multi-Sensory trained teacher. Students with dyslexia learn best through the use of this multi-sensory approach. We engage in many fun and innovative ways of learning.
Part of my tutoring is to provide periodic assessments and progress reports for each student. It is important that we see where a child starts and progresses to each level. I will, also, meet with your child's teacher to ensure we are working together to provide success for your child. This meeting is at your request and a fee is charged.
The joy of seeing children become successful and love the joy of reading makes me an outstanding tutor for children.
My degree, the teaching of phonics, and my belief phonics is essential in learning to read makes me qualified to help children.
I look forward to working with your child. Please contact me to help your child become successful in school and everyday life.
