Hi, My name is Teri and I have dedicated my life to giving students the skills necessary to thrive at whatever they choose to do in life. I have been teaching for twenty-plus years in grades PreK3 - adult and have worked with all students, from those that are gifted to those in life skills classes. I am a mother of five and a grandmother of ten. All of my children have grown up to be assets to society and my grandchildren are also well on their way to a full life with many choices.
The first thing you will notice about me is my sunny smile and my enthusiasm for teaching and learning. I make learning fun, but I never waste time. As a Reading Specialist, I make sure that my students always have in their possession materials that they can read and understand. Struggling readers face enough frustration in school every day, they don't need another dose of that from me.
If I can assist you or your child, please contact me.

Special Needs

Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

I am a reading specialist with 20 + years of experience in education and 12+ years in Reading education specifically. I have a master's degree in reading and I understand how the brain works in students with dyslexia. I know that this problem originates in the language center of the brain, specifically in the area of phonological awareness. By improving skills in this area a young student will open the neuropathways to the comprehension section of the brain.

All reviews helped my daughter

Patient and thorough

Teri consistently goes the extra mile with my daughter to ensure that she has mastered each concept... and she's always so pleasant and positive while doing so!

Kirsten, 12 lessons with Teri

Excellent tutor!

We are extremely happy with Teri. She comes to our home once a week and helps our daughter with mostly reading but truly helps her with any subject our daughter currently needs help in. She has given us tools to help our daughter with spelling and reading. She has been kind to our other children and dogs when they float in and out of the room while they are working. Just the other day my husband and I were talking about how much we have all learned from Teri in just a short time and how much she has helped our daughter improve in her schooling. We have already seen some grade and confidence improvements. Thank you Teri!
