"WHAT ARE YOUR CREDENTIALS?"
I have more than 28 years' experience teaching on elementary, middle school, high school, and university levels. Subjects which I have taught are reading, grammar, composition, literature, and learning strategies. I developed a reading course for students with differences and a course in learning strategies.
Currently I am in private practice, teaching students reading, spelling, phonemic awareness,grammar, comprehension, and writing skills using the Orton-Gillingham method.
