About Me

Experience Summary

My qualifications for teaching reading and dyslexia include use of the Orton-Gillingham approach, Barton Reading System, Davis visual processing methods, and Lindamood Bell strategies. With specific teaching methods, students who struggle with decoding, fluency, spelling, comprehension, and writing can be successfully helped to overcome these problems. Each student is provided individual lesson planning, according to his or her demonstrated strengths and weaknesses.

Teaching Style

As a tutor, I am able to present material and concepts to students in an easy-to-understand manner. Often, I look for ways to relate to students as individuals and connect the academic studies to their personal interests. I have a personable and upbeat teaching style while challenging, pacing, motivating, and holding students accountable for their learning progress.

My Hobbies

My hobbies include swimming, drawing, painting, reading, and spending time with my 5 year old granddaughter.

Other Comments

Recently I have begun using methods for visual-spatial students with great success! References from current parent-clients are always available.
