"I prefer online tutoring, and I can make it validating and enjoyable for you. I've raised four children who are readers and writers... and I have inspired hundreds of elementary teachers to to love books, reading, and writing. You can check out my philosophy for helping young people become writers by skimming my book, Encouraging Your Child's Writing Talent (Prufrock Press, 2006).

"I prefer online tutoring, and I can make it validating and enjoyable for you. I've raised four children who are readers and writers... and I have inspired hundreds of elementary teachers to to love books, reading, and writing. You can check out my philosophy for helping young people become writers by skimming my book, Encouraging Your Child's Writing Talent (Prufrock Press, 2006).

I taught K, 4th, and 6th grades in Utah, Arizona, and Texas. I have supervised elementary student teachers, and I have participated in research about gifted education and differentiating instruction. I am a professor (retiring soon) of elementary education. Additionally, I have taught children's literature and children's nonfiction literature and the undergraduate and graduate levels, inspiring numerous non-readers and reluctant readers to become motivated readers and writers. This has been my career for the last 25 years.

I have taught elementary literacy methods to preservice teachers, presented at national conferences about literacy education, founded and chaired an annual literacy conference for educators & librarians, and published a book (by invitation) about parents encouraging their children's writing talent.

I studied with Marcia Invernizzi and Mary Abouzid at the University of Virginia, where I assisted in research about the developmental stages of spelling. I taught spelling instruction as part of my language arts methods course for pre-service teachers. When we struggle with certain aspects of spelling, it can show us where there were gaps in our learning and experiences in spelling development. This can be "diagnosed" and strategies can be developed.

I do prefer online tutoring sessions, but I value the mutual enjoyment of learning that occurs when relationships of caring and rapport are developed. In the right circumstances and by mutual agreement, I am open to other tutoring arrangements." less...
