I have been teaching for 21 years now and I have worked with all types of students. In addition to my formal academic training through The University of RI, Rhode Island College and Providence College where I received my Master of Special Education, I am also trained in Applied Behavior Analysis from Bradley Hospital. I worked closely with a behavior analyst and trained many teaching assistants in the use of this methodology in order to educate children with Autism and other pervasive developmental disorders. Although this is my first love, I do truly enjoy working with all children. I am currently teaching 1st grade and have taught 2nd grade (for 4 years) and 6th grade and served as a Resource teacher for grades K-6. I am also very close to completing a year long training and tutoring program in Orton-Gillingham through the Children's Dyslexia Center of RI. I hope I can help you and your child succeed in all areas and ensure a love of learning.

Wonderful Tutor

Colleen has tutored my 2nd grader and we feel very fortunate to have found her. She works with my daughter on improving her math and reading comprehension skills. She is very patient and really caters her teaching style to what my daughter needs. She comes prepared with many tools to share. My daughter loves working with Colleen and looks forward to her tutoring sessions. Colleen shares with me what she did after a session and gives great suggestions for what we can do to help her at home. I would highly recommend using Colleen as a tutor.
