Dyslexia Specialist/Reading Tutor
I moved to Manhattan in 2015 after many years in the Portland, Maine area where I was first a classroom teacher and then became a reading specialist. I became certified in the Orton Gillingham methodology through a year long post graduate program sponsored by the Masons.
For the past ten years, I have worked with dozens of dyslexic children and struggling readers, helping them to build both their literacy skills and self esteem. I believe that my successes with my students stem from the neuro-science underlying the method, along with my students' hard work and tenacity, the support of their families, and the fun and creativity I build into our work. No two students are the same, so I tailor lessons for the individual student while still maintaining the core components of the methodology.
