Let's get your child reading!

My passion is helping children become confident readers and spellers by teaching them how our written language works. Parents often share feelings of frustration because they are unaware of how to help their child. The common advice to “sound it out” is not effective and causes confusion when met with a word such as sign. The approach I use builds a child’s understanding and confidence.

How I Can Help

The approach I use draws children in while building an understanding of our writing system. No confusing rules or exceptions to memorize which in turn builds confidence and self-esteem. This approach works equally well with children for whom English is their first, second or even third language.


Children who struggle due to a learning difference (diagnosed or not) demonstrate amazing growth! The benefits of this approach are supported by research. Call me to discuss your child’s progress; our conversation will outline how I can be of help!
