"Hi. I'm Denise, and I have been working in the field of special education for 29 years. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky with a dual major in Elementary Education and Special Education. I added an Elementary Reading endorsement to my teaching certification and later earned a second Masters degree as a Literacy Specialist from the University of the Cumberlands.

My experience includes 29 years as a Special Education Teacher and Consultant in Hardin County Schools in Kentucky. My areas of specialization include learning disabilities including dyslexia and autism spectrum disorder. Tutoring is a natural fit for me because my strengths lie in assessing individual student strengths and weaknesses and developing instructional intervention plans. Individualizing instruction and goal setting is my focus, and I get tremendous satisfaction witnessing students meet their academic goals.

I love to work one-on-one with students who struggle with reading and provide the instruction they need to improve their reading skills. My approach encompasses all five components of reading as recommended by the National Reading Panel. I would love to help you learn to read and watch your confidence soar. Reading makes all things possible. It is the most important skill, and I can and will help you read better.

My vast experience, my education and certification and especially my passion for teaching students to read make me highly qualified as a reading tutor.

I have worked in the field of special education for 29 years and have a love for students with special needs. I have dedicated my life to educating students who need individualized instruction. This makes me highly qualified as a special needs tutor.

My knowledge of the phonics continuum and the connection between spelling and reading makes me a highly qualified spelling tutor.

Please contact me to get started on the path to becoming a proficient and confident reader. I look forward to hearing from you to schedule your first lesson." less...
