About Kathleen

I entered the noble field of teaching because I believe change begins with education. As a dyslexia teacher and reading interventionist, I provide daily, intense, student-centered interventions to help readers achieve grade level expectations. I teach reading and spelling through a multi-sensory language structure program. While working as a classroom teacher for the intermediate grades, I planned and implemented meaningful, daily lesson plans for mathematics, social studies, science, reading, and writing workshop. Mathematics, social studies, and science lessons were taught using project and inquiry based methods that intellectually challenged students' thinking. I set high expectations for my students and differentiated instruction so that every child was successful. Through my ability to manage the classroom effectively, I was able to maintain a positive classroom environment.

I love one on one tutoring because it is the most optimal learning experience. I enjoy building rapport with my tutees and watching them grow academically.

I am a certified reading specialist and master reading teacher with 9 years of teaching experience.

I have taught all academic subjects and grades kindergarten through five. My bachelors and masters are in education with a specialization in language and literacy studies.

I explicitly teach phonics through a multi-sensory approach. I have experience teaching Words their Way, Scientific Spelling, Fountas and Pinnell phonics, and Making Words.

I am passionate about learning, reading, and writing. Please contact me, so we can begin our learning partnership.
