I have been teaching since 1999. My areas of expertise are reading and spelling. I am a certified Orton Gillingham teacher, reading specialist, special education and elementary regular education teacher. I have taught Pre-K to adult. I have been teaching full time in a public school setting, all ages, and I currently own Golden Advantage Education. Golden Advantage Education is a tutoring company that provides 1:1 tutors in the comfort of the clients home. I also tutor out of my office full time and I offer professional development workshops as well in the area of Multi-sensory Reading.
I believe in setting the rules in a friendly, but clear way and teaching with love and passion. The students know how you feel without needing to say a word and it is so important to let them know how much you value their work so they can learn to value their work as well. They learn from us, so I try to teach in a positive manner with a focus on what they can do and try to do and any mistakes just hints about what we need to learn more about! Positivity is my style!
