Teaching and tutoring children is my passion. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and a Ph.D. in education. I am a WA State certified teacher. I was a classroom teacher for 10 years. I have been a professional tutor for the past 15 years. I am a reading specialist. Some people call me a Learning Therapist.
I mostly work with children with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, executive function dysfunction, and high-functioning autism. I assess their skills and then develop a learning plan.
I start with traditional methods for teaching beginning (phonics, sight vocabulary) to advanced reading (comprehension, fluency). I watch and listen to the student to see what works and what doesn't. If something doesn't work, together with the student, I develop customized strategies.
I'm friendly and sometimes silly; my students love me.
