I am a former Elementary Ed teacher with NEISD, where I taught Kindergarten and first grade for over a decade. When my daughter was in third grade she was diagnosed with dyslexia and I decided to tutor her myself. The traditional teaching styles do not address the needs of a dyslexic student. She graduated this year, 2020 with honors. I have a passion for helping struggling readers like her learn to read by way of a multi-sensory approach called the Orton-Gillingham method. I am trained in both OG and the Slingerland approach as well. My tutoring sessions are completely hands-on, incorporating the visual, auditory and kinesthetic senses. Please visit my website for more details and let's see if my teaching methods fit your needs. Thank you for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
I give hope to readers who are discouraged and have been unable to be successful in the classroom. I provide encouragement and love to see the twinkle back in their eyes when they start realizing they can read just like everyone else.

I have a welcome packet answering a few questions you might have, but my website is an excellent place to learn more about me and the approach I use to help struggling readers reach their potential. We can speak on the phone and then set up a meeting. If we agree to go forward and work together then I assess the student and make an individual remediation/ intervention plan for each person.
I taught in NEISD for over ten years. I have a degree in Elementary Ed with a minor in Early Childhood and was a Kindergarten and first grade teacher. I have been trained in both the Slingerland and Orton-Gillingham method of reading remediation. I am constantly attending seminars, listening to webinars, reading and learning from the best educators the way to help learners who use different pathways of their brain.
I charge $45 per session. It is usually a 50 min session and we work up to the very last minute, leaving time for a short update with whomever picks up the student. To make progress, no less than two sessions per week are required.
I have always wanted to teach. In high school I worked at a day care with after school kids, then I went straight to college, where I graduated early. I got a job even before I graduated and have been teaching ever since.

Please be sure it is a method that has been proven successful at retraining the brain to learn to read. Traditional teaching methods do not use multi-sensory methods, nor do they give the students long enough to process and practice the skills taught. No need to continue to try methods that haven't worked.
