About this tutor

Through my tutoring and teaching, I have been able to help many children with reading challenges make gains in reading and reading comprehension.  I have also created free materials for parents on my website.  These materials served to support parents in their efforts to help their children.

I have over 25 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have been able to help children meet and exceed their reading goals and plan to continue making a difference in the lives of young children.

It is a thrill to see children increase in their reading ability. I love knowing that I am instrumental in opening children up to the world of reading.  It is a joy to see eyes light up as each child reads a new book.  That is something that I truly enjoy.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I offer the student a free consultation and assessment.  The parent and I talk over what they feel the needs are and what we need to focus on.  I take some of the time during the free consultation to introduce Zoom and its features so the student is comfortable with the platform. 

We then start working on the areas of need and concern.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a licensed teacher and have over 25 years of teaching experience.  This has allowed me to help a wide variety of children make progress in reading.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $30 per session.  For children under 8 years old.  My sessions last between 25 and 30 minutes long.  I work with older students for about 40 minutes a session.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching when my children were young. The teaching bug is in my genes as my mother, grandmother and great grandmother taught school and even started a school in South Carolina.  My teaching experience has taken me from private to public schools and from large classroom to small pull out groups.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked the slow learner, students with dyslexia as well as autistic students.  Many students have issues that are typical of delayed development and require consistent instruction and practice.  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I take great joy in reflecting upon the achievement I have seen in a young girl that is dyslexic with a low IQ make reading gains this year. She has grown and gained so much confidence.  This is my joy!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would advise the student to ask the tutor what materials they use and how many children they have been able to help.  I would also ask about payment and cancellation policy.  These will help with expectations.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should think about how their lives will be different after they have achieved a specific goal with a teacher. They should also think about what will happen if they don't make progress in this area.  They should also think about how much better they will feel if they are able to read better as well as comprehend what they are reading.
