About Arlene

I have a Master's Degree in elementary education/learning disabilities and more than 30 years' teaching experience as a Learning Disabilities Resource Teacher. I have a current teaching license in Illinois and Nevada. I have been subbing in Clark County for the past several years. I also have tutored many children in all subject areas including pre-reading, phonics, reading fluency, reading comprehension, math, study skills, writing and spelling. I am trained in the Wilson Reading program which targets dyslexia and have always used a multi-sensory approach in working with students. It is important to support children's strengths and self-esteem while building skills.
