Academic, Learning Disability, Test Prep, & Home School Help

In 1987 and 1996, I received training in the Orton-Gillingham Method for teaching students with Dyslexia. I have taught Dyslexic students in clinics in New York and North Carolina, as well as through private tutoring sessions in Florida for almost twenty-five years. The method I use helps students develop an understanding of sound-symbol relationships through a step-by-step, multi-sensory introduction to them. Students gain confidence in sounding out words, reading fluently and comprehending the written text. I love working with Dyslexic students helping them develop their Reading, Writing [more]

I have tutored several students who have been diagnosed with dyslexia. I have been trained in and have used the Orton-Gillingham Method to help these students. They usually do ve [more]

Effective, Insightful and Patient!

I am certified as a special education teacher, and also as a learning disabilities teacher-consultant. I have more than 10 years experience working with students who have ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning challenges. Sometimes I feel like a magnet! Students seem to know right away that I like and appreciate them, and we tend to get down to the honest issues right away. This is great because it saves a lot of time and helps us to stay focused on the tutoring task at hand. I've been teaching for more than 10 years, and love working with students who have learning disabilities. In fact, I am a c [more]

Education is Growth

There are many signs and symptoms of dyslexia. A reversal of a b and d is a early signal for a young child, however, it can quickly be outgrown by grade 3.

Once it is determined how a child "reads" a page, a reading method can be developed to help the student track the words on the page for fluent reading.
