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!

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.
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.
My charge varies depending on location of instruction and the number of sessions per week.
As a speech therapist and reading instructor I have worked with children who have a wide variety of disorders. I specialize in working with children who language based literacy disorders, such as Specific Learning Disabilities or Dyslexia.
