I worked for six years at Chesterbrook Academy, where I tutored children in grades Pre-K through 6th grade in reading, writing and math. My specialty area is working with Pre-K through 2nd grade on beginning reading and writing skills. I use very structured reading and writing programs to help the child learn in a systematic way, from less difficult to more difficult.

Dyslexia

I worked at Chesterbrook Academy for six years, where I worked with many students who were identified dyslexic. I use the Wilson Reading System in the teaching of reading. This program was developed especially for dyslexics. It is a multi-sensory, step-by-step program that uses decodable text. I feel I am qualified to teach dyslexics.

Very good teacher!

Margaret taught English reading, comprehension, spelling and writing. In the first lesson she assessed my skills so I could know where I stand before we proceed further. Very good teacher!

Monica, 13 lessons with Margaret

Great tutor, great results!

Ms. Margo was very good for our son. He was really struggling with reading and she helped him gain the confidence he needed to become a good reader. His report card and teacher's review showed great results and we are thrilled with the results!
