I'm a Reading Teacher and Dyslexia Therapist certified by the International Dyslexia Association. This makes me an ideal choice when you pick an online dyslexia specialist. If your child struggles with reading or spelling, I can help. I've had eighteen years of teaching experience and I've taught hundreds of children to read. Teaching is my calling and I love working with kids.
I'm different from other teachers and tutors. My deep understanding of linguistics really sets me apart. I can explain why English words are spelled the way they are. Please watch my video to see an example of this. The dyslexia treatment I provide starts with respect for every child's intelligence. I tell my students why our language works the way it does so they understand it honestly and meaningfully. I establish strong working relationships with my students and I know every student as an individual. I nurture academic and emotional growth. This is a one person shop. Your student will always work with me and I will always be your point of contact.
Over the years I've found that many students become more engaged when they work with technology. I use the Barton Reading & Spelling System because I believe it is the best online reading intervention program. My students progress and gain confidence. Most of my students are able to read on grade level within one to two years if they consistently attend lessons 2-3 times per week. It takes two to four years to complete the entire Barton Reading & Spelling System. Those who do usually read at the ninth grade level or higher.
