Language Arts Tutor Who Gets Tangible Results (ADHD Okay)
Hello, and welcome to my Berkeley Parents Network site!
I am a seasoned Literary Arts professional, teacher and tutor, from 2nd grade to postgraduate with tangible results! I have been tutoring folks for over five years. I can help your child sharpen and deepen their capacity as a writer, dramatically improve their reading skills and comprehension, improve confidence, help them write successful essays and applications. I also support parents in gaining help for IEP's at school. Additionally, I offer support for students diagnosed with ADHD.
My tutoring style is personalized to the individual’s needs, process oriented, and makes use of assessment, tutorial, and fun interactive projects. Students who are struggling to read and write get patient assistance through combined techniques of phonetic awareness, meaning inference, seeking definitions, word recognition, pattern recognition, as well as building skills in spelling and grammar, and by building self-help techniques. I also use humor and play to lighten the mood and make the sessions fun. I am very patient, and excel at finding creative solutions for those with learning differences, and those who are struggling with specific issues.
If you choose to work with me, you will find that I am steeped in literature, and have a true passion for language and for working with you!
