Trained reading instructor with background in English Literature, American Literature, and writing.

Methodology

I teach students of any age to not only find success in reading but to enjoy it. I approach each student from where they are and work actively with them and their parents to get them where they need to be. I also believe providing support for parents is really important so I work one-on-one with parents as well to teach them skills to help their students and develop plans to see their success grow.

Background

I have a degree in English Literature from Agnes Scott College. I have been trained in providing reading support and comprehension lessons to children from age 4 to college and adult levels. I have training in academic writing and research as well as in presentation skills and public speaking.
