From Kindergarten through graduate school, I help students overcome obstacles, clearing the pathway to success. As a tutor and educator for over 20 years, I care about my students and work hard for them. I am a dedicated teacher because I believe that education can change lives.
As a reading specialist, I have developed strategies based on Orton Gillingham methodology, which guides struggling readers to become fluent readers. I developed a reading program for tutoring students (K-3) online. The program has been very successful in improving decoding and fluency skills. I recently added a comprehension component, which has been equally successful. Now, I can tutor students in reading regardless of distance.
Earning my doctorate in education required developing expert writing and research skills. I am proficiency in APA and MLA formatting and tutor high-school, college, and graduate students. I edit research papers and dissertations and tutor students on organization and formatting.
As an educator and tutor, I love what I do and find the rewards of teaching to be unmatched.
