I earned my masters degree in Special Education from the University of Florida, but found I needed more training to help my struggling readers. I completed the comprehensive course with Institute of Multi-Sensory Education, and took additional coursework with Reading with TLC and the Morris Center. I have been helping children with dyslexia and dysgraphia for my entire career, and focusing primarily on direct reading and language instruction for more than 20 years with great success. I provide all services online. In addition to direct instruction and therapy, I am available to collaborate with you and your child’s educational team and support therapists and/or counselors.

She is a highly qualified, effective educator with twice National Board Certifications in Exceptional Student Education.

She has worked as a general education and special education teacher at both Elementary and Secondary education levels, working with varying exceptionalities such as students with DYSLEXIA, DYSGRAPHIA, ADHD/ADD, and AUTISM, etc…
She has extensive training working with students who thrive with specialized interventions such as Orton- Gillingham based methods. The learning process can be a struggle for many students with conventional whole word reading teaching methods. Fortunately, most students thrive when given a multi-sensory structured language program tailored to improve their unique areas of deficit. Because the techniques used in every tutoring session follow a multi-sensory approach, games and manipulatives are incorporated into daily lessons, reinforcing previously learned concepts in a fun and engaging way.
