Hello, my name is Brecca, and I am a former elementary teacher and reading tutor. I have completed the majority of my training as a reading specialist and have taught reading methods courses to pre-service teachers. I am currently writing my dissertation on metacognition in primary reading. I am looking forward to tutoring part time because I miss teaching!

My basic plan for tutoring follows a cycle of assessment and instruction based on a framework of local and state standards. I like to start with an assessment of multiple reading skills. Then I compose a plan and share it with parents. I provide a full hour of instruction and keep very detailed progress notes. The progress notes inform my ongoing planning.

I am equally qualified to help children crack the codes of phonics and engage in higher order comprehension processes. The pre-assessment data that I collect will help me determine what your child needs. I am also interested in hearing your opinions and any information from the school that you would like to share.

Please note that I request that a parent be present during tutoring. For example, you could work in the kitchen while we read at the kitchen table. I enjoy providing parents with progress reports. I also try to point out different approaches to different reading tasks. Former clients have told me that they appreciated the chance to view their child’s performance from this perspective.

Phonics

I am highly qualified to teach phonics through my education and training. I am knowledgeable of the National Reading Panel's recommendations concerning phonics and phonemic awareness. I have been trained to assess, teach, and remediate in phonics and phonemic awareness. Phonics includes work in phonemic awareness (identification, substitution, deletion, addition, and blending of individual phonemes), phonograms or word families, blends, digraphs, and short, long, and more complicated vowel patterns such as diphthongs.
