About Sheila

Hi Students and Parents,

I have been a Reading Specialist for 25 years, working with students in both Title I programs and coaching teachers in best practices. I especially love working with younger students who are struggling with reading skills. My expertise is in beginning reading instruction, even though I have taught students all the way to high school. My greatest concern is getting my students motivated to read!!! If I can accomplish that, I know that reading success will follow. A rise in self-esteem and a feeling of accomplishment will follow. I have a great sense of humor and I believe in having fun while learning.

In addition to possessing a Masters degree in Reading, I also have additional certification in Reading Recovery. This a a program for which I trained at RI College for a year. It is a methodology that works with at-risk students one-on-one and brings them to an average level within a very short time. This method not only works with younger students, it works with any age!!! The techniques used are fun, quick-paced, and never boring!!

I would love to have the opportunity to work with your child in order to enable them to make accelerated gains in their reading achievement! Learning to read, and to do it well, is life changing.

Approved subjects

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.

Reading

I have a Master's degree in Reading and did a year of post-graduate work in Reading Recovery, which is a program for at-risk first graders and gets them to an average of their peers in a very short time. I also teach Critical Reading at the Technical College of the Lowcountry.
