"I am certified in Special Education in CT and NYS, with 72 hours of training in Orton-Gillingham. Working with many students over my 6+ years of teaching has given me experience connecting to individuals, understanding what challenges them about learning, and helping them build skills to last a lifetime.

I love learning, and I love teaching. Teaching and tutoring challenge me to keep learning so that I can meet students at their level while helping them grow academically. It is fun for me to get to know a new student; I like to learn about what they enjoy as we also tackle academics.

I have worked 1:1 with students in the schools where I have taught and I find it extremely rewarding and effective. Of course, it helps if we have a chance to get to know each other a little as we work. I care a lot about the students I teach, and think about them even when I'm not in school. My hope is truly to help students build skills and confidence that will make them lifelong learners.

I majored in English in college, and it gave me the opportunity to read and write all of the time. What a luxury! I love literature, and talking (and writing) about books is one of my favorite things. I bring this passion to teaching/tutoring reading and English.

I have deep experience working with students from grades K-12 with learning challenges, and I am highly trained in teaching students with dyslexia with the Orton-Gillingham program (72 hours), through the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners.

i hope you will contact me so we can talk about your tutoring needs and hopes." less...
