Hello, thank you for visiting my profile! You are here because you need help with reading and/or English, and I am just the teacher for you! I have been a literacy educator for over 20 years, and have had my own tutoring business for the last five. My love for reading began in childhood. I would sit, books all around me, reading for hours. When I was about 10, my mother told me that my great-grandmother was illiterate; I broke down in tears. I asked how she was able to get what she needed from the store, my mother replied, “She looks at the pictures on the labels.”
As a Reading Specialist, I am dedicated to teach those who struggle with words. My students range in age from 6 to young adult. I know how stressful it can be to want to read and write well, but can’t. My training in literacy education has given me the tools to support my dedication to helping others. I assess skills using reading and writing inventories, develop lessons according to skills needed, use strengths to support weaknesses, build confidence through successes, and enhance literacy knowledge.
Wherever my student is on the literacy spectrum from “looking at pictures” to “making mind movies” with words, my goal is the same: to teach and enrich.
