With 15+ years of experience and expertise as a former 1st-grade classroom teacher and certified Reading Specialist, I can quickly help close the reading gap. In my experience with 1-1 instruction, I have helped students increase their reading ability by a whole grade level in as little as two months of 1-1 tutoring with them. Most recently, I have been working with a 7-year-old boy who has learned the alphabet and letter sounds in three months of 1-1 work. This typically takes the entire year of kindergarten to accomplish.
The first few years of learning to read build the foundation that will dictate each student’s future academic success. K-3rd grade reading instruction is the most critical time to close reading gaps, or children will not be adequately prepared for academic learning later.
I want to help your child enjoy learning to read. I can promise better results than an impersonal learning center or online curriculum sites that do not provide the direct 1-1 attention your child needs. I will take the time to learn what they are passionate about and teach them to read, utilizing their preferred learning style. If you are ready to invest in your child’s education, I am here to help.
