"I received my education from The George Washington University in 2007 in Speech and Hearing Science and Psychology. I received training at the Rusk Medical Institute NYU and AHRC, NYC. I am a qualified educational specialist with extensive background and training in various evidence-based educational programs; including Orton-Gillingham approach, Handwriting Without Tears, and Fast ForWard.

I believe every individual is unique and every student has a different approach to learning.. I use specialized multi-sensory programs to provide students with the tools to become effective learners.

I am Orton-Gillingham trained and help students with reading disorders build stronger reading, writing and comprehension skills. The Orton-Gillingham based curricula guides students of all ages through the critical components of reading including: Phonological and Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Spelling, Fluency and Comprehension.

I am trained in Handwriting Without Tears program which is a an evidence-based teaching approach to handwriting. Children will master the skill of handwriting so they can then focus on the content of their writing, instead of the mechanics. For Spelling, the Orton-Gillingham approach helps take the mystery out of spelling by focusing on why words are spelled the way they are. Though the English language contains just 26 letters, these letters combine to create 44 speech sounds, and there are over 250 ways to spell those sounds. But the Orton-Gillingham approach condenses the spelling of these sounds into phonograms and demystifies spelling by teaching students to apply rules and generalizations that help make what was once difficult much easier! Orton-Gillingham is a powerful approach to teaching reading and spelling that uses instruction that is multisensory, sequential, incremental, cumulative, individualized, phonics-based, and explicit.
