Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Dyslexia

I am certified to teach the Orton Gillingham, which is a researched-based strategy that is language based and uses a multisensory approach to reading and writing. It is often used in special education classrooms, and it has been proven very effective with children who have dyslexia. I also am trained to administer read naturally which uses repeated readings for fluency and comprehension, which is also research based. I currently have two years of experience tutoring children with special needs and dyslexia and both programs have proven very effective in my experience.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my bachelors degree in Psychology from Anderson University with a focus in cognition and learning. I am currently working on my master's degree. I also am a certified Orton-Gillingham instructor and reading specialist. I specialize in working with children K-5, and typically focus on reading and writing.

Reading

Not only do I use the Orton Gillingham approach with children who have Dyslexia, I also use this program with children who are learning to read. In addition to this, depending on the student's reading level, I use Read Naturally in order to help the student with mastering reading fluency and comprehension. Both programs that I use are research based and I am open to going over the methods in more detail prior to tutoring.

Special Needs

I am certified to teach the Orton Gillingham, which is a researched based strategy that is language based and uses a multisensory approach to reading and writing. It is often used in special education classrooms and it has been proven very effective with children who have dyslexia and other learning disabilities. I also am trained to administer Read Naturally which uses repeated readings for fluency and comprehension, which is also research based. I currently have 2 years of experience tutoring children with special needs and dyslexia and both programs have proven very effective in my experience. Special needs children go through testing with me in order to assess the level that they are working on. I do this order to best fit the needs of the individual child.
