Academic Writing Specialist and Academic Coach

I have decades of experience working with students with a variety of diagnoses, including dyslexia.

I have assisted adults, te [more]

PhD. Reading/spelling/writing (certified Barton Reading)

Besides having a Ph.D. in psychology, I am a certified Barton Reading and Spelling tutor. Barton Reading and Spelling is an Orton-Gillingham, multi-sensory, approach to teaching reading and spelling and is highly effective for addressing the reading, spelling, and writing needs of students with dyslexia. This approach to teaching reading breaks the task of reading into small, manageable bites: there is explicit instruction in phonemic awareness (being able to hear the units of sound in language) and in phonics, incorporating visual, auditory and hands-on tasks. Each sound is taught separate [more]

Professional / Individualized Lessons / Positive Experiences

The student who suffers from Dyslexia does not proceed from left to right in order to read. That student may "reverse" letters while reading and writing. Remedial activities include using a dot (.) under the beginning letter of a word and a line (.____) connected to the dot to help the student to "track" the letters and to read the word, thus extracting meaning. My training for how to work with students who have dyslexia includes the work that was required in my Masters' Degree program in Special Education with an emphasis in "Learning Disabilities" 1974 - 1979. During that period, I w [more]

Tutor for multiple subjects

I understand what it is like to be a dyslexic student, and I have successfully tutored dyslexia children for 12 years. I have also taken some classes in special Education working toward certification. I work with the children without emphasizing the disability. I stress what they are capable of doing and show the student ways to learn and do more. I work on the material that is needed to be doing well in school. I use the IEP to guide instruction. I believe that all children can learn, but sometimes they need to hear the material in a different way. A tutor needs to be able to present ma [more]

Retired Learning Disabilities Teacher

I am currently certified as a special educator for children/youth with learning disabilities in New York and Utah. Almost all of my teaching experiences have been with children struggling with learning to read. Because of my early training in learning disabilities, I look first for a student's learning strengths, then whatever issues may be holding him/her back from succeeding. As a hands-on learner I struggled learning to read trying to memorize words visually and orally in elementary school. Consequently, when a child can't read, I will look to understand why and teach to that child's streng [more]
