About Sari

I love helping kids learn to read! Many students struggle with reading, writing and spelling and are not given the right tools to succeed. I have been trained in Preventing Academic Failure (PAF) which is an early intervention program for teaching reading, spelling, and handwriting. It prevents or addresses reading failure in struggling readers and learning disabled. PAF is the most effective adaptation of Orton-Gillingham instruction and provides children with the building blocks they need to learn in a logical order which results in minimum frustration -- and maximum success. Its step-by-step progression leads not only to improvement in basic skills but to an increased sense of mastery and self esteem.

Being a mom of a dyslexic child motivated me to learn how to help her succeed and then help others who had similar challenges. I received my training at the Windward Teacher Training Institute and currently work in the White Plains School District tutoring individual students with the PAF program. I look forward to helping your child gain confidence as a reader and writer.

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 have been trained in Preventing Academic Failure/Orton-Gillingham in the certification program at the Windward Teacher Training Institute. The Windward School is an independent school exclusively for students with dyslexia and language-based learning disabilities. The PAF program prevents and addresses reading failure in learning disabled and struggling readers. I have been working with dyslexic students at the Mamaroneck Avenue Elementary School in White Plains, NY.

Handwriting

I have been trained in Preventing Academic Failure/Orton-Gillingham in the certification program at the Windward Teacher Training Institute. The PAF program is a multi-sensory program which integrates reading, spelling and handwriting instruction. I have been working with young students on their handwriting at the Mamaroneck Avenue Elementary School in White Plains, NY.

Phonics

Trained in Preventing Academic Failure/ Orton-GIllingham in the certification program at the Windward Teacher Training Institute. I tutor students using the PAF program at the Mamaroneck Avenue Elementary School in White Plains, NY and with private clients at a Westchester based speech and language office.
