I've been tutoring dyslexic students in the Kingston/Woodstock area for over 7 years. I use the Barton System for Reading and Spelling, an Orton-Gillingham-based program, with great success.

In addition, my master's degree in linguistics and many years of teaching English as a Second Language and English Composition qualify me to tutor in all aspects of ESL and English language arts.

I hold California credentials to teach English and ESL in Community College/Adult Education as well as grades 7-12; I also hold a multi-subject credential in Elementary Education. I taught for over 30 years in California classrooms and as a homeschool support teacher.
