About Me

Experience Summary

I have a PhD in Special Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education and children with language and literacy-related difficulties. I can work with children and adults who have:ADHD, Central Auditory Processing Disorder, learning disabilities, cognitive impairments, or typical development I also enjoy and can provide:consultation and coaching for parents and caregivers of children from 6 months-6 Years in child development, positive discipline techniques, emergent literacy/reading readiness, and early literacy; and for children from 7 - 11 years consultation in child development, positive discipline techniques, reading, homework, homeschool curriculum, and working on IEP goals at home (I am not a speech/language pathologist and do not provide speech/language therapy) For children, I provide educational therapy, which includes but goes beyond typical tutoring. I have worked with children and adults for over 20 years, helping students from age 3-60. I hold an NC professional license in Special Education K-12, add on Pre-K license, and an Elementary Education license. I am excited about and capable of working with students who have a wide-range of abilities and ages. I have attended many IEP meetings and can provide support to parents through the eligibility and IEP process. I also offer consultation to parents of children with and without disabilities who are homeschooling. For adults, I can provide tutoring in reading, composition (papers), English as a Second Language, and beginning Spanish. For aspiring teachers, I offer tutoring for the Reading Foundations and Special Education tests, in addition to editing papers for APA format. Se habla espanol.

Teaching Style

I take a holistic approach and match students' needs with my teaching methods. I begin with a free get to know you session where we determine how often and where you want tutoring to take place and what will fit your needs and budget. I ask that parents bring any previous testing information or IEP if one is in place. The next session I do assessments in a non-threatening way. If needed or possible, I consult with current teachers or other educators about the student's needs and begin to develop a customized learning plan. During the third session I bring ideas about a learning plan and we collaborate on the learning plan that will meet your or the student's needs. Sessions involve active learning and customized to fit each student's interests, experiences, activity level, abilities, and needs. Data is taken frequently to monitor progress. I use PhonoGraphix to build decoding skills, and for children I may also use iStation for decoding and comprehension. Every effort in made to make the sessions fun, motivating, and interesting, as well as immediately beneficial.

My Hobbies

Kayaking, reading, running, hiking, and playing with my dogs are my favorite hobbies.
