What makes you excited about Parallel?
My love of teaching reading, spelling, and writing through the Orton-Gillingham approach has led me to teach and tutor full-time through online formats. I love being able to reach as many people as possible through the online format to improve literacy skills.
What are some of your specialties?
My passion has always been reading and literacy instruction.I received my Orton-Gillingham certification from the Children’s Dyslexia Center organization. I continued to tutor with the center for several more years and became the director of the center. As the director, I oversaw the daily operations of the center. As the director, I also trained tutors to work with students with dyslexia. I continue to tutor online and belong to the International Dyslexia Association and The Reading League so that I can continue to improve my tutoring skills and keep current with evidence-based practices in teaching students who struggle with the written language.
Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?
I love working with students to improve their confidence in the areas of reading and written expression. I know that with the knew knowledge of written expression, everyone can achieve their dreams.
