About this tutor

I prepare individualized lessons for each child to cater to their learning level and provide constant review while introducing new concepts.  I present information in a clear, explicit manner with the difficulty level building gradually to decrease frustration. I have a master's in speech langauge pathology and am certified in the Orton Gillingham approach.  This background allows me to address reading disorders using well researched techniques. 

I love seeing children get it! That "aha" moment is what I work for.  My heart bursts when a child realizes that they have made progress, and that books that were previously hard are now easy!

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

First I spend sometime getting to know them student to set him/her at ease.  We might play a quick game or look through a few pictures of my family and hobbies.  Then I complete a thorough assessment which allows me to determine what my student's needs and strengths are.  After that I set goals for the student and share them with the family. I keep the family informed about the student's progress through written, monthly updates as well as conversation during our tutoring session. 

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

I have a Master's of Science in Communication Disorders, additionally I completed coursework a and supervised 100 hour practicum to become certified in the Orton Gillingham approach to reading instruction.
