I am a retired reading specialist. I taught reading to children in grades 1-4 for 32 years. I can answer questions from parents or educators about problems children may be having with their reading. I can offer some ideas to parents, teachers and tutors on how to help children to become better readers.
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.
My undergraduate degree is in English and my Masters degree is in Reading with emphasis on Learning Disabilities.
