About Dori

I have been an elementary school teacher for 23 years. I have a passion for learning and love to inspire others. I have taught kindergarten through third grade. I am very familiar with the standards students need to achieve at those grade levels and have worked with all kinds of students throughout my career.

I love working with students one-one one. It gives me a chance to get to know them and focus on specific skills that need practice. I love watching students grow academically and in their confidence level. Some students just need a little more time to practice skills and they don't get that extra attention in the classroom. That is when a tutor is useful.

I am highly skilled at teaching reading and writing. My style is to explicitly teach skills that need to be taught at that grade level or to enrich skills so the student may excel. I teach students how to make connections and develop strategies they can use as a resource when they get stuck. I am particularly skilled at scaffolding student learning for the new Smarter Balance Assessment.

I am certified to teach Elementary K-6, but have specific skills and interest in primary grade levels or ESL.

I am an excellent phonics tutor because my instruction is explicit and concrete. I have years of experience teaching beginning readers and developing readers. I assess students to see where they are starting and continue to monitor their progress and communicate that with parents so they can see their growth.

Feel free to contact me with your concerns. I am currently teaching and a parent myself. I understand the difficulties that lie with students needing extra practice and not being able to get that in the school environment. I am here to help not only with tutoring, but with suggestions for help at home as well. I have specific experience with students with Autism and ADHD/ADD. There are many great strategies to help your child be successful.
