I'm your best response to "summer slide" 2020, which is a real possibility because students have missed so much school due to the Covid-19. My service stands on its own merit because it is superior to the "cookie cutter," pricey franchises. Not only do I address the reading concerns, which are usually underdeveloped decoding skills, but I also incorporate important related skills that impact on reading. Spelling, grammar, writing, etc. It is much more personalized. I am not a random tutor. I am a retired elementary principal with a Bachelors, two Masters and a Doctorate degree in the field of literacy/education. I have been an adjunct professor in reading at Bowie State University, Morgan State University, the Community College of Baltimore, and Howard University. One of my MSDE certifications is in Reading and Literacy. I’m considered to be an effective expert in the field of Literacy. I provide effective corrective and remedial instruction with strategies that address phonemic awareness/word recognition, decoding, pronunciation, comprehension, study skills , fluency, content area reading proficiency and more. I'm also trained in the Orton-Gillingham method, used with "dyslexic" students.You will begin to see positive results in your child’s overall academic performance in as soon as two or three months, if you provide regular, twice weekly, tutoring sessions. Twice a week sessions are recommended for best results. Please note that I’m only in the state of Maryland; currently serving Howard, Montgomeryand Prince Georges Counties. I’m available 7 days a week. My day typically begins at 8:00 a.m. or earlier, on the weekends.
Prevent "summer slide" sign your child up for in home or online summer tutoring sessions.Your child will return to school empowered and armed will lifetime skills and competencies that will give them confidence and propel them academically throughout life.
The amazing progress that students can make in a relatively short period of time (one year), if parents make the investment of at least 2 sessions per week. I like the fact that my students experience overall academic success as a result of my personal intervention. One-on-one tutoring works. And, for those parents who request them, I do use Google Duo, "face time", and other virtual platforms. I have several parents who use it now.
She is very good
I provide one-on-one thorough instruction in remedial and corrective reading, as well as, phonemic awareness, word recognition skills and comprehension. (This is not a crash course.)
My materials are professionally developed, highly personalized, customized and individualized. Additional instruction is provided in comprehension strategies, which include common core, critical and higher-order thinking skills. Test taking strategies are incorporated in my instruction process. The key is teaching students how to take any type of test. Twice weekly sessions are highly recommended for best and quickest results. I’m not cheap, quick or gimmicky! But I’m reasonably priced.

I graduated from college cum laude in 1965 with a degree in elementary education and started teaching 4th grade.
I have worked with all types of students in my career from grades k through 12 and beyond as I have been an adjunct professor at several local colleges and universities.
Just last week one of my parents told me that she had seen a change in her child in about 3 instructional sessions. She noticed his increased confidence. I tell all of my students that they are smart. I make them feel like winners. They blossom and achieve!
Look at people's credentials. You don't have time for people with no experience out to make a few bucks. They can do you more harm than good. I won't disappoint you.
Most students in need of tutoring know that they are not performing up to the same level of their peers. During the initial informal assessment they start to reveal their strengths and weaknesses. They may not verbalize it at first, but if you gain their trust and they feel comfortable with you , they will talk to you about their weaknesses.
