"I am a reading specialist with Bakersfield City School District and I currently work with kinder through 5th grade students who struggle with reading. I teach in small group and am able to diagnose reading difficulties through the use of assessment, and respond to those reading difficulties through prescribed activities and lessons. I have research based materials at my disposal and will come fully equipped to help your child with any reading struggles they may have.

I have a multiple subject credential with a Reading Authorization certificate and a Master's Degree in reading and literacy from CSUB. I have been working as a reading specialist for over 6 years and have been in the education field for 17 years. I work with all types of students and am able to connect on a personal level and help students believe in their capability to learn.

My specialty is reading and writing. I have specialized curriculum and training in the areas of reading and writing.

I teach phonics and decoding on a daily basis and am well versed in the progression of learning and skills students need to decode text.

I use the Words Their Way curriculum to teach spelling developmentally following an assessment of spelling skill. This is a research based strategy and works very well for all ages of children.

My experience and qualifications make me effective, but you will want me to tutor your child because I can make them love learning again. I believe that all children can learn at high levels and I've seen children with learning disabilities and behavior issues change their beliefs about themselves and how they learn. I know that I can help your child too." less...
