TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught high school educable mentally handicapped for three years and K-6 Learning Disabilites for four years. I left education to work with computers for 30 years. Prior to retirement, the passion to assist struggling readers was rekindled. Since retirement, I have tutored at my grandchildren's school and have developed numerous materials for fundamental reading and math skills.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Being analytical (computers for 30 years), I breakdown many of the reading skills into small manageable parts and then work towards building the whole. The materials I develop are specific and focused to provide fundamental skills while other contributors provide materials for the higher reading skills. When possible, I develop interactive materials that allow teachers/students to customize to meet their individual needs. The theme for my materials is centered around breakfast food analogies. Single Syllable Words: Pancakes (short vowel sounds); Waffles (long vowel sounds); Orange Juice (R Controlled vowel sounds); Fruit Toppings (Diphthong vowel sounds). Multiple Syllable Words: Donuts (open vowel rule); Muffins (multiple consonant rule); Grapefruit (silent e rule); Maple Syrup (rule of le).
