About Lindsey

A quick snapshot of me: I have been teaching for 7+ years and have experience in a variety of grade levels/settings- Kindergarten, 1st, 5th, 6th, and Special Education. I love to teach all subjects, but reading is my passion! In my current position I have been rated Highly Effective for each year I have been working, and I feel that is because I target each child where they are and focus on individual strengths, needs and interests to drive growth and success- which is why I am confident I can help your learner achieve their goals!

As a tutor I am committed to determine which areas need improvement and use several engaging, research based, learner approved methods to help your child reach feel successful and reach their goals!

I believe in using a variety of engaging, hands on activities to teach reading skills. I have 7+ years of experience teaching reading which have given me the opportunity to learn and implement skills from Reading Recovery, Wilson, Fountas and Pinell as well as several curriculums.

I have experience using Words Their Way, Handwriting Without Tears and several other programs that focus on handwriting, spelling, sight words etc. In addition I believe in providing many different experiences while to developing these skills, as children learn in different ways. This might include forming letters with play dough, building words with blocks, or playing a game with spelling words among other exciting activities!

A majority of my teaching experience is in lower grade levels where teaching phonics skills is so crucial. I have had the opportunity to go to several trainings and implement a variety of practices that are effective in improving a learners phonics skills.

I would love the opportunity to meet and discuss how we can work together to help your learner reach their goals!
