I am a literacy specialist and tutor students in reading, math, science, writing and test preparation for grades k-12. I am Orton-Gillingham trained. I have been independently tutoring for the past 9 years. I am currently a certified teacher for K-8 and have spent the last 10 years helping students reach their fullest potential. I specialize in improving the basics. Kids are a lot like homes, they are only as strong as their foundation. I focus on reading comprehension and writing assistance, which includes understanding math word problems and number sense.
