I teach phonics to younger children to develop their reading, writing and speech. I put a heavy emphasis on developing the child's awareness of phonemes, which are the most basic building blocks for all words in the English language. I will improve your child's ability to hear, identify, and manipulate over 40+ phonemes, and teach them how they correspond to the intricate spelling patterns that are found in our language. I have taught all forms of English and language arts from pre-school to adults in their 50's from foreign countries. I am an expert on pronunciation, vocabulary, spelling, reading, writing as well as more complex mechanics such as sentence structure, subject-verb agreement, comprehension, etc.
I had phonics as an official course from 1st to 6th grade - in total, 6 years. I am also a native English speaker. Using a systematic approach, I have helped elementary-age students build their knowledge of phonics, including vowel recognition, through a variety of enjoyable exercises. I also use online resources for homework and practice outside of lessons. Older students review the basics and then focus on prefixes, suffixes, and Latin and Greek roots, also supported by regular vocabulary study on the side.
I have been teaching for 25 years. I have worked with students of all ages from pre-kindergarten to university. I have tutored students in a wide variety of subjects, including phonics.
DISTAR method Combine subjects for a price break. Simply choose ONE subject for the amount of tutoring TIME desired, and notify me which subjects you'd like to cover.

I've been teaching Phonics for 10 years now and my students have gone on to love English and have improved reading and writing skills. I typically use a phonics book along with worksheets to help you or your child learn to read better. I love working with everyone from 5 years on up to older adults. I will tailor lessons specifically for you and your goals. I use humor and am easy going. I believe we learn best when we are relaxed and comfortable so that is the environment I create. Also remember, mistakes are a great thing! They give us wonderful opportunities to learn! I look forward to working with you to reach your goals!
