I have a Master’s from Stanford University in Educational Communication and another Master’s from Rutgers University in Educational Psychology. My major for the latter master’s was cognitive processes and language development. I have graduate credits in the information processes approach to cognition (reading and perceptive processes) and dyslexia. I received my certification through the Dyslexia Training Institute and my graduate credits in dyslexia courses are from the University of San Diego.

Studies have shown that dyslexia is a specific learning disability that has a neurological basis. A dyslexic child is born that way. The brain is plastic, however, and it can change with the right approach and the right teacher. Thus, the brain of a dyslexic person will eventually develop the neural pathways necessary for them to become a good reader. This is accomplished regardless of the severity of the condition and/or the person’s age. Even dyslexic adults can develop these pathways after sustained instruction.

I have more than 30 years of experience tutoring one on one and teaching large and small groups at all levels, from elementary school to college. I specialize in tutoring dyslexic children. If your child is dyslexic, he/she may be very intelligent, but his/her dyslexia has been preventing them from achieving their full potential. Don’t let that continue to happen.

I have experience teaching and tutoring elementary through high-school dyslexic children in English, although since I am bilingual, I can speak to my students in either English or Spanish. I use a multi-sensory approach. I teach by using fun games, and I develop online vocabulary and spelling" less...
