If you or your child are asking this question, you have come to the right place. There are several factors which impact a person's ability to learn to read. It is important to not only understand these factors but also be able to teach to them. That is where I come in. I use a diagnostic approach to determine what aspect of learning to read is impeding success. Then, I create a targeted instructional plan and teach accordingly. I have successfully used this practice for many years in the public school setting and am now offering it in a private setting.
UPDATE: We're open for in-person sessions and assessments! We have updated our protocols in keeping with the current CDC guidelines.
General Office Area -You are welcome to bring your child in the office and/or wait for them in our waiting area. -Anyone who has been fully vaccinated does not need to wear a mask. -Anyone who is not fully vaccinated is asked to wear a mask while in the office and waiting areas. - Hand sanitizers are available in the waiting area. Soap and water is available in the bathroom. - We are asking that you/your child stay home if you/your child have/has a fever, are not feeling well, or have/has come in contact with someone who has COVID-19. -If possible, please have your child use the bathroom before leaving home. This will minimize traffic in the bathroom area.
Treetop Achievement Office - We have Thieves hand sanitizer (65% ethyl alcohol) in the office. -Each child will have his/her own folder with a pen and materials that will not be shared with any other students. -The work area will be wiped down between students. -We will keep my social distance from your child when we are working together. -It is difficult to wear a mask when teaching unvoiced sounds, so we have a plexiglass shield that stands on the desk between the teacher and your child so neither one of us will need to wear a mask while working.
Since we all have different comfort levels with this current situation, online sessions will still be available for instruction.
