"Greetings, my fellow humans. My name is Daniel R and I'm a nerd. I love movies, reading, writing, dreaming, imagining, visualizing, and all that jazz. If there's a story, I'm interested! I have been an elementary special education teacher for the past 4 years, teaching kids with a variety of disabilities. My main focus is to teach students literacy skills, and to develop a lifelong love of reading and writing.

Through my years teaching special education, I have enjoyed figuring out the best way to teach each student because I know all students can learn even if they learn differently than others. And I feel, no, I know that literacy skills are essential tools for all students to succeed in school and in life. I want to teach courses that help struggling readers and writers develop these basic skills all while finding joy in the process. These include teaching the basics for reading: phonics, fluency, comprehension, by using high interest, low level books. And even some creative writing courses that focus on grammar, organization, and content.

I have an undergraduate degree in English language (linguistics). I have a masters of education: special education. Together, with my love of reading and writing (I write novels and short stories), I have spent my adult life helping kids to read and write.

I have been tutoring one-on-one in literacy since the beginning of June. I have developed great relationships with parents and students and am always willing to help kids succeed.

During my time earning my masters of education, I took courses on phonics instruction through the University of Utah. That, along with my English language background, have taught me a lot about phonics, how English works, and how to get students to learn basic reading skills.

I am an easygoing guy and love to help kids feel comfortable and successful. If you'd like to develop better reading or writings skills, contact me and we can schedule a time to meet and learn together. I want you to develop a life-long love of literacy!" less...
