I have 10+ years experience teaching in public schools all over New York. Recently I was promoted to the position of Lead Teacher in my elementary school, observing teachers and modeling lessons to instruct fellow educators in best practices. My training is in the area of learning disabilities, particularly dyslexia, from Columbia University.

I have 10+ years experience teaching in public schools all over New York. Recently I was promoted to the position of Lead Teacher in my elementary school, observing teachers and modeling lessons to instruct fellow educators in best practices. My training is in the area of learning disabilities, particularly dyslexia, from Columbia University.

I left my position last spring to be home with my baby. As much as I love being a stay at home mom, I miss the rewards that come with teaching a child to read and watching them grow. I'm hoping I can work with your child to pinpoint areas of need and address your concerns.

I have worked both as a literacy specialist and lead teacher in elementary school settings, mentoring new teachers and working with veteran teachers to bring them up to speed with the latest research in reading instruction. I am extremely familiar with the common core English standards, and what is expected of your child at each grade level.

I have worked in the classroom since the implementation of common core, and have prepped hundreds of students for the common core exams at all levels grades 3-6. I find that all students, even the highest achievers, benefit from practicing and reviewing these standard skills, as they build on prior skills from previous years.

I teach each of my students to read and write both in print and script. I spend a great deal of time working with children on penmanship, as they won't be able to get their great ideas across if their handwriting is illegible. Many students need help in this area, and unfortunately it is rarely addressed in the classroom.

I have been highly trained in the area of Orton-Gillingham methods for working with students who are dyslexic. I'm intimately familiar with Wilson, Fundations, and Alphabetic Phonics. I enjoy teaching parents how to work with their children to improve reading and writing skills as well.

Please contact me so that we can together find the best way to help your child succeed in school! I look forward to working with you.

My Orton Gillingham training included a lot of handwriting work. I have taught students both cursive and print styles of handwriting with great success. I consider it to be as important a skill as reading.
