About Lee


Bio

My specialty is working with students who struggle with organization, reading comprehension, and writing. I hold a Master's in Reading and Language and am certified in reading and LD in NH and Mass. I recently retired but still have time and TLC for your student. I like to use stress reduction techniques, memory tricks and lots of active learning. After 25 years of teaching there is a lot of depth and variety to my repertoire. Generally, I work with tweens, teens and adults.

The SAT paragraph are about vocabulary and the nuanced understanding for words in context.

Understands what makes kids tick.

Lee has been wonderful! She is a creative teacher who helps draw the best out of our ADD 5th grader. She is teaching him strategies for writing that are helping him become much more comfortable with the process. Her patience and desire to find the best way to work with our son have been a godsend. And she was even willing to help when he was having a meltdown about needing a tutor. She stepped right in to help him understand that there's no shame associated with getting help. He went from hysterical to happy and engaged in about 15 minutes with Lee's help. He looks forward to the days she comes and I love that I hear the two of them chatting and laughing, all while he is learning!
