"I tutor ONLINE ONLY. Click "Availability" for current time slots. CANCELLATION POLICY: 24 hours IN ADVANCE. If 15 MINS. LATE, lesson is considered canceled. The charge is for a full lesson.

I do not chat over the phone; consultations via Wyzant only. I teach math, writing; however, my expertise is reading as I'm certified to teach the Wilson program. Are you on West Coast time or from another country? That's okay because I teach students from China, Malaysia, and Cali! I'm EST (New York Time).

I earned a C.A.G.S from Mass. General Hospital Institute in Boston to become a reading specialist with an initial license to teach reading to ALL grade levels (even adults). I'm a certified Wilson Dyslexia Practitioner having completed Steps 1-6 (falls under umbrella of Orton-Gillingham). I completed two practicums: one for MGH Institute and one for Wilson. Also, take into account whether online learning is best for your child in regards to attention (ADD or ADHD).

I'm a certified elementary teacher and started as a first grade teacher in 2007. I taught fourth grade for eight years. I've taught all grades as a building substitute for 4 years prior to becoming a certified elementary teacher. I've had many encounters with students with various skills and learning abilities, and worked with various families tutoring their children. Currently, I focus on using the Wilson program to teach students with dyslexia, so if you are looking to improve your child's spelling or reading, I can help! The candidate should be between grades 2-5 and be able to sustain attention for one hour and 15 minutes. Materials cost under $50 prior to taxes and most students do 3 sessions a week. The first two sessions include an assessment (one is the WIST and the other the WADE). Completion of steps 1-6 takes about a year to 3 years (or even longer) depending on the learner/number of lessons. I hope to make a difference in your child's life!" less...
