Reading & Comprehension, Writing, Homework Coaching, Organizational & Study Skills, Special Needs Support, English as a Second Language

Do you need an experienced tutor who is fun, kind, knowledgeable, and passionate about breaking concepts down into simple and easy steps? You've found me! :) I have twenty years of experience tutoring in language arts, English, and ESL. Does your child have a disability? I would love to help. I have eleven years of experience working with toddlers to teens with autism and developmental delays. I hold a BA in Psychology with a minor in Education and an MA in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the science of learning. I also have a certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).

My tutoring focuses on mastery of English in academics and daily life. I help students with listening, speaking, reading, and writing. They expand their vocabulary, improve reading and comprehension, and learn the writing process. I also help students with pragmatics, executive functioning, and self-confidence. They develop the social use of English, study skills, and initiation with learning. I work with parents, updating you on your child's progress and offering tips to practice with your child.
