About Connie


Bio

I am passionate about students learning to read and write! These are important academic skills that can make the difference of success in school and life. I am a licensed teacher with a BA in English and a master's in education, both from The College of William and Mary. I also have been trained in the Wilson Reading system and have taught and tutored using it for the past 15 years.

I am passionate about students learning to read and write! These are important academic skills that can make the difference of success in school and life. I am a licensed teacher with a BA in English and a master's in education, both from The College of William and Mary. I also have been trained in the Wilson Reading system and have taught and tutored using it for the past 15 years.

I have had the satisfaction of seeing many of my students pass the state SOL tests as well as their English classes. I have worked with elementary, middle and high school students with and without disabilities. I feel I am very patient and understanding, but also remain very focused about what is needed to learn to read and write. Some students have been dyslexic, unable to distinguish sounds and syllables, but they have learned to read and to write better. I tend to be creative, working with each student in the way that is best for them. I want learning to read and write to be a positive experience.

Phonics

Since I was trained in the Wilson Reading system, the basis is phonics. You build on sounds, put them together into syllables, build words that are readable for the students who could not read. I have a masters in special education from William and Mary and 15 years experience teaching and working with students who had to start at the "basics" with phonics.

Writing

I have worked with a number of high school students to prepare them for the writing SOL. I have even been contacted to help several students who did not pass the Writing SOL and needed "remediation" before they re-took it. Working with students to help them improve their writing skills gives me a great deal of satisfaction.

Dyslexia

I have a masters in special education from William and Mary and taught in Newport News as a special educator for 15 years. I am trained in Wilson Reading which was actually created by Barbara Wilson based on Orton Gillingham strategies for use with people who were dyslexic. The first student I worked with was dyslexic and the Wilson Reading program was the key that unlocked his ability to read. He graduated from high school, college and has just been hired as an elementary school teacher! I get results.
