I am a certified reading specialist K-12, a former public and private school teacher, and currently a private tutor. I can provide 1:1 online academic support for elementary students in the areas of reading comprehension, writing, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, and executive functioning skills (organization, following directions, and study skills). Am skilled in assessing learning problems and finding creative ways of helping students overcome them (including learning disabilities and dyslexia). My approach involves motivating students based on their interests. For middle and high school students, I teach students comprehension and study skills (e. g., questioning, skimming, outlining, taking notes, technical vocabulary) that makes it easier for them to understand content area material in English, social studies/history, and science classes. I also work with them on assignments, and provide tips on how to study for tests. I do not provide tutoring in math.
