A+ Reading Services assists struggling readers in grades K-3 in moving towards grade level achievement levels. By learning research based strategies, students accelerate and become self sufficient as literacy learners. Progress is valued but achievement at grade level is the ultimate goal of all tutoring.

After decades serving as a Reading Specialist and Literacy Coach in a large public school urban district, I launched this tutorial service. The strategies work for most readers including autistic and other special needs learners.

    I began teaching in New Jersey as a second grade teacher which I taught for 8 years. It was my favorite grade. I taught first grade,but moved to teaching Title I Reading as a Reading specialist,then a Literacy Coach.. I relocated to Massachusetts and taught there for 30 years before returning to school to earn a PHD. I left public school and began teaching university courses for both undergrads and graduates seeking licensure as Reading teachers. I supervised student teachers and became a literacy consultant for an international publishing company until retirement in 2016.
    Due to my superb post graduate professional development by college trainers who learned from the New Zealand guru,the late Dr Marie Clay ,I'm equipped to instruct learners with special needs and those who are autistic. My specialty is struggling readers in mid-kindergarten to grade 3.
    I'm eternally grateful to to the office of County Commissioner Viviana Janer. She approved a Community Betterment grant I wrote that enabled me to train volunteers and serve struggling readers at BVL Library in Orlando Florida. Project Feed and Read was a Saturday program that provided instruction to 15 low achieving readers and writers. It was unfortunately discontinued due to the pandemic in 2020.
    The teacher needs to be knowledgeable in more than simply strategies for reading. The teacher should understand the research on how reading develops in young readers,and how to closely observe using the tool known as a running record. The teacher should value assessment to inform instruction. Progress should valued just as much as achievement. Reading whole stories and applying strategies should take precedence over worksheets. Phonics should be seen as a tool with comprehension viewed as most important.
