Meet Alfina

I have over 20 Years of Extensive Tutoring, Educational Counseling, Mental Health Services, Client Advocacy, and Special Education Teaching experiences. Seven years of Special Education teaching experience provided insight into differences in learning styles, issues of learning disabilities including ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, and Autism Spectrum Disorders, and how these impact higher education experiences. Qualified administrator and interpreter of Myers-Briggs Type Indicator for career skills and major selection. Certified as a Qualified Parent Trainer in Communication by Family Team Institute, Ft. Myers, Florida. Fluent in French, Indonesian, Sundanese, and conversant in Russian and Japanese.

I am trained and Certified in Orton Gillingham reading methods by the State of Hawaii Dept. of Education, during the 2008-2009 School Year. I was trained directly by the Statewide Special Education Literacy Resource Teacher Trainer of the Hawaii State Department of Education.

I am also trained in the Wilson Foundation and Wilson Reading Program, which is the more "children friendly" version of the Orton Gillingham methods, for which I attended annual training conducted by Colorado Department of Education.

Alfina has been tutoring my daughter this school year. In that time, she has improved in her sight reading, decoding skills and her ability to persevere through difficult tasks. Alfina is firm, but kind and patient.
