I am a Traveling Dyslexia Tutor. I am currently based in the Portland area but I sometimes travel to do pet sitting jobs or to attend trainings. I have 12 months experience doing on line tutoring and 30 years of face to face tutoring experience.
I am a trained Wilson Language Dyslexia Tutor. I am applying to train this summer as an Orton Gillingham Associate Tutor. My educational background includes teaching experience from PreK to College. My Maryland State Advanced Professional Certificate in Early Childhood, Elementary, Reading Specialist and Administration is current.
My desire is to help students become a more confident learners. I believe the tutoring relationship determines the success of the time we spend together.
I enjoy working with students of all ages. My current students range from Grade 1 to Grade 11.
My best experiences are when I can develop trust and rapport with my students and show them the many ways I have learned to solve problems.
I consider myself a gifted educator and loving, kind soul whose gifts are best used helping others learn.
I am an excellent communicator and I prefer face to face and phone contact over texting or email, although I do use all methods to communicate with my families.
