As an educator with 14 years of one-on-one tutoring experience, I use up-to-date,
highly regarded instructional programs plus expertise acquired during 29 years as a
regular and special education teacher in the public schools and an adult educator
in hospital, business, and community college settings.

I created and taught educational programs to meet specific needs of students in
elementary school classrooms and for employees in a corporate setting, one of
which was highlighted in a publication for school psychologists and special
education directors, called “Clinic in the Classroom”.

My education includes a Master’s Degree in Special Education from Northeastern
Illinois University, Chicago. I obtained specialties in learning disabilities and
reading through coursework beyond my M.A. To prepare for my work as a private
tutor, I completed workshops in multisensory techniques for teaching basic reading
skills, reading comprehension and written language skill development.
Additionally, I completed training in Lindamood Bell LIPS and Visualizing and
Verbalizing Programs and the Wilson Reading Program.

I continue my education by attending relevant conferences and workshops, reading
journal articles pertinent to my interests, and participating in online study
groups on dyslexia, special needs, and learning disabilities.
Professional Memberships. International Dyslexia Association, Illinois Branch of
