I have two Master's Degrees in Education. I am a NYS certified teacher with professional licenses in the area of elementary education, special education and educational administration. For the past 11 years I have worked as a full time, public school elementary education teacher in Westchester County, NY.
I have an extensive teaching background in the area of literacy. I specialize in teaching children in kindergarten, first, second and third grade how to decode, improve symbol imagery, strengthen visual working memory and read with fluency. In addition to my NYS licenses I am a certified practitioner of Orton Gillingham, a multi-sensory approach to teaching reading to students with dyslexia. For students to develop a strong oral vocabulary and understanding of text they must first learn to read with fluency. Once this process occurs students can than hone in on strategies for improving comprehension.
If your child is struggling in reading I would welcome the opportunity to assist and develop a comprehensive plan for building upon student strengths and remediating areas of concern.
I guarantee significant improvement in your child's ability to read within as few as four sessions of working together. I will help set the course for your child to become a confident and successful reader. I have two Master's Degrees in Education.

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.
