I'm a retired elementary teacher with 20 years teaching in lower elementary school, both public and private. I have also owned and operated a tutoring center,for 12 years, focusing on reading--decoding and comprehension, spelling and writing skills, especially for students with dyslexia. I continue to tutor both during the school day and after school. I delight in creating decoding games and activities to enhance my students needs. I strive to create materials that get the greatest amount of learning with the least amount of time and effort.
Presently, my focus is on one-on-one or small group instruction using highly structured programs to overcome major challenges in reading and spelling. I use supporting games and activities to reinforce concepts taught. I have taught in a variety of settings including multi-age classrooms as well as traditional grade level classrooms, both in public and private school settings. I have taught grades K-7, mainly lower elementary grades.
I have a published book called A Word Write Now designed to help students of all ages to choose quality words for their writing.
I am a certified Barton Reading and Spelling tutor, have a CA teaching credential, a BA from San Diego State University and extensive training in various phonetic, decoding programs, plus 30+ years teaching and tutoring.
