Truth & Kindness

I’ve been working in the field for over the past 20 years helping children with reading difficulties and those looking to further their growth.


My level of work involves:

  • Rebuilding and developing children’s reading skills (Kindergarten - 8th Grade)

    • Which includes: Fluency, Vocabulary, Comprehension, Phonics, Phonological, and Phonemic Awareness

  • Relieve and manage learning anxiety related to educational processing issues

  • Integrating children back to “at level” reading material

  • Helping children find joy in reading and learning new material

  • Working with Special Needs children with cognitive, auditory, and visual processing issues

What I Do: Individual Online Instructional Reading Support

My approach is to listen, look, and find specific issues that create problems or missed concepts that hinder my student's 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 so they can obtain the education they need to succeed.
