I am a Certified Academic Language Therapist. I am certified in Early Childhood, Elementary, English as a Second Language, and Special Education. I have lived in Belgium and taught in South Korea.

Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT)
ALTA, IDA, CEC member
ECE, ELEM, ESL, SPED Certified
TESOL and CYLE (young learners English education) certificates.
Orton-Gillingham Multisensory training in Reading and Math.
I am a knowledge-seeking advocate.

My goal is to help you become successful, help you feel confident, and for you to find the joy of learning.

Learning math is about quantities and comprehending that those quantities represent a numerical value, represented by a symbol. At the basics, we learn math fluency by increasing working memory and utilizing ways to add or subtract quantities faster. Reading and writing are tools used to understand language. Comprehension is the analysis of the message and the ability to convey a message or dialogue with a purpose. Phonemic Awareness and the ability to manipulate speech sounds as well comprehend sound-symbol correspondence is invaluable to successful reading, writing, and speaking. I teach the science of reading. I teach multi-sensory math.

Contact me anytime. My compassion will be your passion for success.

I have a great amount of experience teaching and tutoring phonics with children, some young adults and adults too, of different backgrounds. I am certified in PreK-3, 1-8, and English as a Second Language education. Phonics is the ability to hear, identify, and manipulate phonemes, which leads to successful reading, speaking, and writing. I can help students not fear language by teaching them skills and strategies for successful reading.
