Who I Can Help

The techniques I use are most effective with a student who:

  • Needs help with decoding and sounding out words, and with spelling.
  • Is a child over age five, a teenager, or an adult.
  • Has normal hearing, vision, speech, and oral language abilities.
  • Can pass the screening test. Every student is given this test during the initial consultation meeting. This helps us to determine whether the approach and techniques I use are going to be appropriate for the student's needs. 
  • Can check email and join a Zoom meeting, or has someone available who can do this.
  • Can speak and understand English at a basic conversational level.


The instruction is focused on the foundational skills of phoneme awareness, letter-sound relationships, and phonics, although we will, from time to time, touch on various topics in basic grammar, handwriting, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.
