About this tutor

I am an education specialist working 1:1 with students to reach their potential through multiple modalities for the last 14 years. I have taught students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, ASD, ADHD, executive functioning weaknesses and visual impairments.

I have experience in the public, private and charter school setting as a special education teacher. I am trained in Lindamood-Bell phoneme sequencing program (LIPS) and have experience using a variety of programs such as Barton Reading Program and TouchMath. I believe every student can learn when using a whole child approach.

Availability for the North Valley. I would love to hear from you and answer any questions you might have!

I work with students using Empowerment Scholarship Account Program (ESA), as well as, private pay clients.

I enjoy the creativity of the learning process! There are many ways and modalities to learn.
