I provide intensive instruction to children in Kindergarten through 8th grade who struggle with basic reading and spelling. I help them learn to read and spell accurately, fluently and independently - and meet challenges with confidence and enthusiasm.

I create a warm, affirming, home-like environment where children can comfortably take the risks necessary for learning. My instruction is:

  • Systematic – I build a deep foundation in phonemic awareness and explicitly teach each reading skill and strategy your child needs.
  • Engaging – I use students’ strengths and interests to help them learn - allowing for movement, games, drawing and other modes of learning.
  • Proven – My students make measurable progress as noted by parents and professionals such as teachers, school reading specialists and psychologists.
