I gained additional teaching experience as I homeschooled my five children.

I have a MA in Speech Communication from the University of Alabama and I have been teaching students for 26 years. My teaching career began as a public speaking instructor at our local college. I gained additional teaching experience as I homeschooled my five children. As I began to teach my oldest child, I learned she had learning differences and, eventually, discovered she and all her siblings have learning differences rooted in dyslexia. I realized I needed specific training to teach students with these learning differences. After extensive research, I found that the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading instruction is the gold standard for teaching students with dyslexic tendencies or any struggling reader. My training in the Orton-Gillingham approach allows me to teach my students with a diagnostic-prescriptive approach so that they can receive the lesson that's best for them. Two of my children are now successful college students. I continue to teach my other children and they are making great progress toward their educational goals. And they love to read and learn new things which makes me very happy as a teacher.

Whether it's learning to read a chapter book, writing a speech, delivering a speech, or anything in between, I want students to be successful in their educational goals. I want them enjoy the process of learning so that they will become or always be lifelong learners. I am patient and persistent with all students. I know the struggles that dyslexic students face as I've walked with my own children through that journey. As a public speaking teacher, I know the fear so many people experience at the thought of delivering a speech. I can provide students with guidance, feedback, and encouragement as they successfully present themselves and their subject to any audience. I have flexibility with my schedule and can meet at a place that's convenient to you or, in some cases, can travel to you. My rate is $35/hr with a reduced rate for online tutoring. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you meet your goals.
