Summit University and Lycoming College (Elementary Ed.)
After graduating from college, I taught at the elementary level and then took a break to raise my children. My daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia. It was a difficult road to find the source of her reading and spelling difficulties. By the end of 4th grade after much frustration, I had her tested outside of the school system and confirmed that her disability was dyslexia. This diagnosis opened a whole new area of need within our local community. I found that there were very few tutors trained to specifically address the needs of a dyslexic child.
Dyslexia requires an Orton-Gillingham based program to teach spelling and reading. I was trained in the Barton Reading and Spelling program and have been tutoring children and adults for the last 3 years. July 2013, I traveled to Chicago and took a Graduate level course on Screening for Dyslexia and became a certified Barton tutor.
I have become passionate about helping people with dyslexia. My daughter can now read and spell and no longer feels frustrated and hopeless. Children(and adults)can succeed in reading and spelling with proper teaching.
I tutor from my home in Loyalsock. I also teach 2 classes on Spelling through a local homeschool co-op group during the school year. I try to be flexible with scheduling, but I do have a 12-hour cancellation policy. I look forward to talking with you.

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.
