Reading

Specialist

     During the past 20 years, I've been teaching elementary students how to build stability in reading. I provide educational services to children facing reading difficulties and to those looking to further their growth.

    My approach is to listen, look, and find specific issues that create problems or missed concepts that hinder my students reading capabilities. My methodology is gentle, respectful, and exploratory in finding relief when children encounter their reading frustrations. I allow them to grow with the acceptance of their natural abilities and discover a process that works best for them.

   
Ultimately, my goal is to build solid foundations for my students and create happiness through self-directed learning. I teach my students to believe in their greatness and obtain the education they need to succeed. Not just the ability to read, but more importantly, to believe in themselves.

    It is a pleasure to develop kind-hearted students, build supportive learning environments, and cultivate the joy in learning. My heart goes out to all children so that they may enjoy the art of reading.


Along with my lessons, I help students:

  • Rebuild & Develop Reading Skills

  • Relieve & Manage Learning Anxiety

  • Help Children Find Joy in Learning


    I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss the contributions I will provide for your child. Thank you for your time and consideration.

The key to unlocking

my student's potential.

I help my students fall in love with what they are learning and who they are as an individual.
