She’s been so great with my daughter and has helped her reading tremendously. She’s very patient and kind and gets to know her students to further connect with and help them.
I entered her class with a kindergarten read level in fifth grade. By the time I left her class, I was reading on grade level and soon reading and writing became my strongest area of academics. She taught me how to look for different solutions to a problem. Giving up was never an option but looking for a new path to the solution was one of the most important skills I ever learned from her. It's because of her that I am now in college. She always the right level of encouragement, pushing, and acceptance that allowed me to grow.
I begin by talking to the parent about what their child's needs are and their goal for acquiring my tutoring service. We then set up a time that I can assess the child. From there we talk again and I give them my results and recommendations.
I am certified in both Elementary and Special Education. I have a Master's degree.
I am a Wilson Dyslexia Practioner and I am trained in many other specialized programs.
I charge $75 an hour. All payments are set up on an automatic payment with PayPal. You can choose weekly, biweekly, or monthly. If you choose more than one session a week there is a discount as more the more days are added.
I grew up knowing that I wanted to be a teacher (I even made my brother "play school" lol). Through high school and college I worked in various positions at a residential school. After college I stayed there until I found a teaching job. I was SO excited to finally be living my dream!
I have worked with students with learning disabilities, autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, behavior disorder, etc.
I am fond of talking to a previous student that is now in college to be a teacher and credits me for being one of the most influential people in her life.
