Struggling Reader? I can help!

Between classroom teaching of English, Speech and Drama and home education, I have eighteen years of experience building up reading, writing and speaking skills in students of all ages. Further, I have expertise in Orton-Gillingham based reading instruction, which is proven to curb dyslexia.

Through systematic training in the 45 sounds of English (as they are written in 70 letter groups or phonograms) and 28 spelling rules, any of the 500,000 words in English can be sounded out logically. This method of direct instruction in phonics was developed by Samuel Orton and expanded upon by Romalda Spalding and Wanda Sanseri.

My own homeschooled children are my magnum opus. My son scored 35/36 on both the Reading and English sections of the ACT. This was the main factor in earning an $8,000 merit award at the University of North Texas Honors College. My daughter finished high school in three years and is working full-time and as a sophomore in college.

A first grader I have been tutoring for two hours per week earned Most Improved Speller and two other end of year awards (May 2017).

As a reading tutor for struggling readers, I received this recommendation from one student's parents:
We highly recommend Susan as an educational tutor. My son, Rxxxx, who has struggled
in class with reading/ writing has been working with Susan and has really benefited. Since he has been attending tutoring (July 2016) his reading skills and confidence have improved tremendously; his school teachers have noticed the change from last year.

In the past we have tried other various teaching tools from online videos, flash cards and phonics in which became overwhelming. This led to frustration with our son and no direction in place to help him. Rxxxx and I visited with Mrs. Susan expressing our concerns regarding his reading issues that he has been experiencing at school, she presented a plan on how to approach with comprehensive lessons that Rxxxx has followed. Mrs. Susan has shown flexibility with working with us on scheduling tutoring around soccer practices and other things that may arise.

My wife and I are most grateful for the hard work and patience that Mrs. Susan has shown Rxxxx.

This makes us proud as parents knowing that our son can now read and that we have chosen the right person to teach Rxxxx. Thank you, Mrs. Susan!!"

I homeschooled my two children through most of their education through high school. Both are now in college and working while taking classes. One scored very high on his ACT, which earned him an $8,000/year merit scholarship at the University of North Texas Honors College.

I discovered the most effective and scientifically proven way to teach reading as a home educator. AT my first seminar I was blown away by the things I learned but never had been taught in school. My children are now in college and I teach reading recovery full-time at a local school. My tutoring clients are make great strides.
