I hold a certificate in Phonological Awareness from IMSE, accredited in the Orton-Gillingham approach, emphasizing a strong foundation in language acquisition. Additionally, I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, enriching my pedagogical expertise. My teaching journey commenced with a Teacher Certificate in Idaho in 2011, enabling me to passionately instruct Reading and Writing to 7th through 12th-grade students for two years. Following this, I obtained a TESOL certificate and dedicated five years to empowering English Language Learners through immersive ESL instruction.
I'll provide a personalized review sheet, typically listing any words misspoken during the lesson.
In the first session, your child will have a quick assessment to choose the perfect book. This quick evaluation involves reading a few words and sentences, helping me gauge their reading accuracy, speed, and confidence.
25 minutes per class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Feel free to share any preferences beforehand—whether it's avoiding magic or spooky themes. Some books might feature fight scenes, dinosaurs, or monsters. I'll give you a heads-up a week before introducing a new book, allowing you to review it and ensure it aligns with your child's comfort.
