Reading

After many years of trying out Phonics programs I found one that works faster and is more efficient. It is an interactive method that utilizes all learning styles with an emphasis on fluency. My joy is teaching reading and getting to see the moment when my students realize that they really can read better. I work with homeschooled students in the mornings.


Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in Texas and New Mexico to teach K-6 and K-9 and taught 10 years in regular education and 28 in Special Education with Reading as my emphasis. I teach an interactive method for Phonics and Reading which requires verbal and physical response and utilizes all learning styles with an emphasis on fluency.


Phonics

I teach a Phonics method that is interactive, utilizes all learning styles, and works faster than other methods. My degrees are in Elementary Education with a Special Education Endorsement and a Master's Degree in Education. I have taught reading 38 years in elementary school and 15 years in private tutoring.


Special Needs

I have tutored in reading for 15 years. In Special Education the reading method I use worked well with my students. I was recognized by the state of New Mexico for results in reading and most of my students gained two years growth in one year of teaching. Gains are much faster one on one. I work with homeschooled students in the mornings.


ADHD

I am certified to teach students with ADD/ADHD and taught them for 25 years of my 38 years of public school teaching and 15 years of tutoring. Teaching phonics and re-directing students has worked for me. I have developed patience and persist until I find what works for the student. I work with homeschooled students in the mornings.


Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am certified to teach students with Autism. The tutoring methods I use are individualized according to what works for that student. Phonics and sight word methods are used. The phonics method I use is interactive, teaches to all learning styles, and works faster. The sight word method I use is also unique and works. In the mornings I work with homeschooled students.


Dyslexia

I am certified to teach students with Dyslexia. The tutoring methods I use are individualized according to what works for that student. Phonics and sight word methods are used. The phonics method I use is interactive, teaches to all learning styles, and works. The sight word method is also unique. I work with homeschooled students in the mornings.
