Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Dyslexia

I hold a Masters of Special Education with emphasis in Dyslexia from MWSU. I am also a certified Academic Language Therapist and a licensed Dyslexia Therapist.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified Ec-4, ESL, Special Ed. K-12 teacher.

Handwriting

As a Certified Academic Language Therapist, one of the important things we teach is proper pencil grip, the proper formation of print and cursive letters, line orientation, and spacing. I have worked with students also on the fine and gross motor skills that are required for good handwriting. Handwriting is a complex skill that requires knowledge not only of letter formation, but which letter to choose to go with which sound. The final goal of teaching handwriting is to provide a student with the ability to communicate through the written word.

Phonics

I worked with K-4 students to provide Tier 3 intervention in public schools, and I direct phonics instruction using the Take Flight Program developed by TSRH.

Reading

Dyslexia, comprehension, phonics

Special Needs

I am certified in K-12 Special Education in Texas. I am also a licensed Dyslexia Therapist and a certified Academic Language Therapist.

Writing

I teach writing using multi-sensory techniques such as Scientific Spelling and Multi-sensory Grammar lessons.
