About Ann

I have a holistic approach to helping students with ADHD, Dyslexia and related language learning difficulties. Each student is their own unique combination of abilities and challenges, and I help to build up the strengths and straighten out the inefficiencies in learning. I am an Orton-Gillingham and Feuerstein trained Educational Therapist, and have been helping students of all ages for more than twenty years to read, write, spell and comprehend. I also specialize in Meta-cognitive training and Executive Funcition skills.

I know how frustrating it is for a bright kid to struggle in school. I also know, that with the right help, these student can shine. It's not just passing the test, or writing the essay. Grades are important in today's world, but I live for the "Aha" moments. Nothing compares to when a student comes in to share how what we did together made it come together OUTSIDE of our sessions, in the real world.

I can help with English, Reading, Writing, Spelling, Comprehension, Executive Function, Meta-cognition, Hebrew Reading, ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Language Learning Difficulties, English Language Learners

Now is the right time to help your struggling student read and succeed!

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.

ADHD

For over 20 years, I have worked with students with ADD, and Learning Disabilities. This experience has been both in the classroom as well as in a supervised clinical practice. My first internship was with the Feuerstein Institute in Jerusalem. In addition to my education and psychology training, I have also worked with neurologists in Israel, Thailand and the US providing educational therapy for their clients.

Dyslexia

I am Orton-Gillingham trained by Amy Bailin, M.Ed., FAOGPE, at Level 2 training. I have completed 300 hrs. of supervised clinical teaching of students with dyslexia, and have adapted the Orton-Gillingham Approach for the Hebrew Language as well. I have been a speaker and workshop leader for the Everyone Reading conference in NYC.

Writing

I have 20+ years experience teaching writing skills, narrative writing and theme development to students of all ages.

I believe that in the best writing, both the author and the reader come together to create a new understanding of their world. Let me help you engage your readers.

Great teacher.

My son likes working with Ann and looks forwards to lessons with her. He believes the work they do together helps him at school. She provides her owns lessons and is working to provide the necessary groundwork to help his reading and comprehension. I would definitely recommend her to anyone struggling with reading or other comprehension issues.
