I have been tutoring and teaching reading effectively for over 20 years. I have also taught reading and English to ESL (English as a Second Language) students in both a classroom setting and as a private tutor for about 10 years. I moved to Utah about a year ago from Boise, Idaho where I had my own tutoring business specializing in reading instruction. I also taught at the College of Western Idaho, a middle school where I developed a tutoring program for students with special needs, and various private schools in the Boise area. I have extensive experience working with both children and adults. I have hundreds of success stories and am passionate about empowering students through literacy.
I use the Metra Structured Tutoring model which has been proven to be effective in teaching reading. It is a phonics based program that combines phonics with whole language, as well as comprehension and fluency. I also incorporate writing into my lesson plans. My teaching methods for teaching reading are tried and true. I am passionate about helping my students build up their confidence, succeed in learning to read, learning to read well, and develop a love for reading.
Currently, I am also working as a reading curriculum consultant and developing reading curriculum for a local private school. I also present at conferences and seminars for teachers and parents on effective reading instruction.
I especially love working one on one and creating individualized programs. I love seeing my students succeed and develop a love of reading.
I would love to help your child succeed in school through improving his or her reading skills. Please contact me if you would like more information!

Jan was able to quickly assess what my daughter needed to work on. She worked with my daughter on sounds and blending and she was able to hold my daughters attention and keep it fun.
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.
