Is your child struggling with reading and spelling?

Let me help!

With 25+ years of experience as a special education teacher and reading specialist, helping your child become a SUPERSTAR READER is my specialty.

I provide highly individualized expert tutoring using the Barton Reading & Spelling System, a proven Orton-Gillingham approach.

The Orton-Gillingham approach is effective in helping many children who struggle with reading, even without a formal dyslexia diagnosis.

Remote online tutoring is effective and efficient, convenient for you and comfortable for your child. 

A limited number of in-person tutoring sessions are also available at my home in Orange County, CA.
