George Fox University (Master's)
I have a masters degree and a reading endorsement from George Fox University plus fifteen years of teaching experience in a public elementary school, teaching reading to students in grades K-6.
My experience includes providing small group or individual reading instruction in the big five: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
I use a fluency assessment as a starting point for identifying reading instruction needs. If reading fluency is adequate, then we focus on vocabulary and reading comprehension instruction. If reading fluency is inadequate, then we assess phonetic skills and focus on reading fluency intervention. If phonetic skills are inadequate, then we assess phonemic awareness skills and focus on phonics intervention. If phonemic awareness is inadequate, then we focus on phonemic awareness intervention.
Interventions targeting one skill have the potential to improve other reading skills due to the interrelated nature of the reading process.
I am passionate about helping children become solid readers, and my teaching approach is to build on what the child already knows and to provide lots of support for learning and time to practice new skills.

My 7 year old daughter has struggled with reading this year and although we can read regularly, sometimes specific and consistent attention is difficult with four other children. Henny is working with my daughter twice a week and able to take that focused intentional time with her, and in a few short weeks I have already seen improvement. She is wonderful at providing a variety of tools for my daughter and being firm and consistent without being intimidating. I was impressed with her experience and education that was posted on her profile and have been very pleased with her tutoring thus far. I would definitely recommend her.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
