Learning Specialist for Primary Students

When teaching dyslexic students, it is important to use multi-sensory approaches to teach phonics such as Orton Gollingham, S.P.I.R.E., and Wilson so that students have all available learning channels stimulated.

Multisensory Instruction in Reading and Math

I completed my Orton-Gillingham Basic Level training in July, 2010 and my Advanced Level training the following year. These courses focused on the multisensory techniques developed to teach students with dyslexia and provided essential information about the English language that is often missing from teacher education programs. I taught reading in a public elementary school as a Title 1 reading instructor for 3 years and although I now teach technology in the same public school, I still work with struggling students before and after school. For the past 5 years my emphasis as a private tuto [more]

I served for several years as an evaluator of young children with behavior and/or learning problems as well as health issues that impact learning and success in general. In my training much later, I learned how to facilitate changing perceptions and therefore actions to become better or improved on a particular issue in q [more]
