Bio

I have been a respected teacher in South Kingstown for 26 years. For the last 3 years I have been the reading specialist at my elementary school building and have had great success with my students. In my daily work I teach a wide variety of struggling readers, both regular and special ed.

I have been a respected teacher in South Kingstown for 26 years. For the last 3 years I have been the reading specialist at my elementary school building and have had great success with my students. In my daily work I teach a wide variety of struggling readers, both regular and special ed.
The picture I have uploaded is one from by website and while it may be a few years old - wow, what a split! I have my black belt from Ichiban Karate and also coach a local girls 9 - 12 slow pitch softball team.
In tutoring children I try to use a multi-sensory approach whenever possible. I often have the child use a dry-erase board, magnetic letters, letter tiles, or chalkboard. Sometimes we stand and form letters in the air. I also try to work within the child's interests or learning style. I do what works for each child in each situation - I never use a one-shot-fits all approach.
I am, however, trained in Reading Recovery, an intensive 1 on 1 program for struggling first graders. While not all children need this approach, I often use pieces of it in my work.
