I love challenges and adore diversity. Let me help your student find success, through customized educational solutions and lessons that are built on a knowledge of your student, their individual strengths, and how they think. My education includes an undergraduate degree in philosophy and English, a Master of Education in Elementary Education, and graduate work in English and Special Education I have eight years of experience teaching students ages 6-15 with diverse learning styles, gifted, and diagnoses like ADHD, OCD, and others. I also have experience in assistive technology like Bookshare and Kurzweil, and finding solutions with whatever technology you already have available to you. My experience as an Educational Supervisor has also given me the opportunity to benefit from the experience and knowledge of my teaching colleagues as well.

I began tutoring geometry in high school, and since then have tutored students of a variety of ages, including adults in everything from reading comprehension, and writing to technology use and study skills. I pride myself in being able to help students see and experience their strengths, while helping them to develop strategies to tackle challenges, build their skills, and reach educational goals. I can also help college students and adults in the marketplace with proofreading, editing, and other writing skills.

In addition to teaching students with dyslexia at schools specifically for dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities, I have completed one year of training with SMILA, a 3-hour college credit course with Ron Yashimoto on Orton-Gillingham methods, and two days of Wilson Training.
