This ongoing class offers individually tailored one on one reading and writing instruction. I’ll start our first session with a reading interest inventory in order to learn about your specific student. I’ll also have them perform a couple of exercises to learn where their skills level is at and report this back to you. There are several different directions we can go based on your student’s needs. (I have professional experience as both a special education reading teacher and enrichment...

I've recently spent three years as a public school teacher providing specialized reading services to middle school students. I've enjoyed utilizing technology-based learning management systems to administer academic material and academic tests online. In addition, I've served as a co-teacher in mainstream ELA classes and constructed instructional plans for individual student needs. I've also served as a K-8 enrichment coordinator/Talented and Gifted coach, implementing various assessment strategies while providing specific feedback on student work. Regardless of student ability, my passion is implementing modifications and accommodations for comprehensive support of student needs related to reading.

Homework for this class depends on individual student needs. However, all students will walk away from each session with goals, exercises, and reading tasks for experimentation. Please communicate with me directly about the desired amount of homework for your specific student. For example, some parents simply wish for their student to perform specific exercises in class with me due to an otherwise packed schedule. Other situations involve parents requesting more work outside of class. I am comfortable accommodating a variety of situations. Clear communication is the key.
Supply lists will depend on individual student needs and how much parents wish to spend financially on materials and/or curriculum. In the first session, students will take a reading interest inventory and we will perform a few brief assessments.
Informal assessment will be used throughout the reading and writing sessions. Adjustments will be made based on the student's needs. These adjustments include decisions around goal-setting, advice offered (based on research), and optional next steps. Most of all, I hope students feel comfortable and encouraged as readers and writers. ****For students working on fluency, more formal probes and assessment check-ins will be done on a bi-weekly basis****
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
