My greatest joy is serving students who are struggling or failing in reading because reading is not just a subject in school, it is the academic equivalent to breathing.  My goal is to give students a passion, joy, and confidence that elevates them to their highest potential. 


Each first session is a free assessment and consultation  From there I create a customized plan that starts with building up the foundation of language arts skills of spelling, phonics, vocabulary and literal comprehension.   I teach children to read from spelling, not memorizing word lists.   I also avoid limited vocabulary readers in favor of classic or well-written books that will inspire and engage them to continue reading.   Cursive penmanship and grammar are built-in to the lessons over time if needed. 


Students of all reading levels will generally improve their reading skills by one grade level after eight to twelve sessions.


The initial and ongoing assessments are free, part of the customization I do to provide targeted intervention. It includes phonemic awareness, spelling, literal comprehension, and deeper comprehension.
