About Sandra

My name is Sandra. I received my advanced training in literacy education at The University of Akron. As part of my training, I tutored one-on-one with children in grades K-3. I also tutored at a non-profit organization which assists refugee families. I am familiar with reading assessment protocol and techniques to increase comprehension, vocabulary, and writing. My graduate thesis topic focused on reading motivation, which I believe is one of the contributing factors to challenges children face as they develop reading skills necessary to be successful as a lifetime learner.

Prior to receiving my advanced degree, I was a children's librarian and a preschool teacher. One of my passions is speaking on the importance of early literacy. I am a mother of two boys who experienced reading challenges, so I empathize with those who are frustrated by the norm. I tend to incorporate "authentic" reading materials which appeal to your child's interest.

I have a vast knowledge of print and non-print materials which can be used to develop reading skills.

I taught a college level study skills class to incoming students who needed remedial studies.

If you are looking for a compassionate caring tutor who is willing to do what it takes to assist your child further develop his/her reading skills please contact me.
