Learning Specialist for Primary Students

It is also important to use direct instruction to teach vocabulary in context. Comprehension strategies need to be reinforced through using visual cues such as Story Grammar Marker. Phonological Skills also ne [more]

Experienced Reading Specialist with M.A. in Educ./Reading Disabilities

As part of my M.A. in Education, I majored in Reading Disabilities. I learned how a dyslexic student's brain was "wired" differently. Students are helped by instructors who use a structured sequential program in phonics, teach organizational and time management skills, and improve fluency and comprehension. I worked as a reading specialist in the Alexandria public Schools for 5 years, served as a reading and learning specialist for students who learn differently at 4 private schools in Atlanta (7 years), as a tutor for elementary, high school and adults through a special school for dyslexics [more]

Certified Teacher Specializing in Regular Ed and Special Needs

Some of my former students went onto to either dual enroll at a neighboring technical college or graduate and excel in their college level courses. I am a certified teacher with additional certifications in English as a Second Language and Gifted and Talented education. I have been te [more]
