Ask A Question


I am a retired reading specialist. I taught reading to children in grades 1-4 for 32 years. I can answer any questions from parents or educators about problems children may be having learning to read. I can also offer some ideas to educators, parents and tutors for teaching children how to become successful readers.

Experience in the area

I worked with small groups of children in a public elementary school setting. I have also worked with and trained teachers in the field of reading. I have also done one-to-one tutoring in the field of reading.


I have written for a few teacher magazines including "The Mailbox" and "The Bookbag."


My undergraduate degree is in English and my Master's degree is in Reading with Emphasis on Learning Disabilities.
