I have an MEd and an EdD from Keele University. I am an experienced and patient tutor with a love for learning and a true passion for helping students achieve their potential. I am qualified in Educational Psychology and have taught in schools in England for many years before moving to the USA. I have extensive experience working with children who have additional learning needs/disabilities, especially in teaching children to read, those with dsylexia, dsycalculia and reading recovery.

I tutor in K-9 reading, writing, comprehension, vocab and spelling and used tried and tested international techniques that really work and get results. I also tutor maths for grades K-5 and Social Studies K-9. I prefer to tutor in your home, where the child feels comfortable, but other locations are available. I hope to get to know you and help you and your children achieve your hopes and dreams.

I use a combination of methods to teach phonics, sight words and fluency. I use different approaches to help students become confident with reading and sounds. I use a staggered daily approach, and provide worksheets for use in the home on a daily basis as well as during tutorial sessions.

I also believe that comprehension is an incredibly important part of the reading process, so I spend lots of time reading with the children I tutor and helping them develop an understanding of all types of writing and ways in which they can express that.

About Helen O.

I am a PhD and EdD qualified teacher who specializes in teaching children to read. I use a method similar to Orton Gillingham and have huge success in getting children to become confident and happy readers. When they have mastered phonics, children can join my 'next stage' program which helps them develop their higher level reading skills. I also offer writing programs for K3-12 and cover different types of writing, how to structure writing effectively and how to get the technical bits of writing right!
I am confident that I can help your child to succeed with my personalized and flexible lessons. So how far your student can progress!
