Literacy consultant, reading & writing specialist, learning disabilities & special needs consultant
Bringing students to higher levels of literacy, including deep thinking
In this private practice, we work with students to significantly improve their ability to learn, and our intent is to nurture in our students a life-long love of learning. We work with students from primary levels through graduate school.
In each session, reading, writing, speaking, and listening are integrated so that all areas are addressed simultaneously. It is understood that the term ‘Reading’ refers to comprehending the author’s message, not only to decoding words, and Writing always accompanies Reading because they are reciprocal skills.
World literature is used to teach reading comprehension and the work of authors writing across distance and time is addressed and incorporates a discusssion of the historical and geographical perspectives of each work.
High-level study skills and Speed-reading courses are also offered to students in middle-school through graduate levels.
