I tutor Reading, Spelling, Writing Composition, and Handwriting using the EBLI (Evidenced-Based Literacy Instruction) system. EBLI is based on Linguistic Phonics or Structured Linguistic Literacy research and practice.
Follow these simple these steps:
Every 8-12 weeks I will reassess your child to find out what gains they have made and how much more remediation they need.
I have been using EBLI and the Structured Linguistic Literacy approach in my private tutoring since early 2023. Before that I used a Structured Literacy program called SIPPS.
Yes, I do in-person tutoring for students in grades k-2 if desired.
When young students live by me they have the option of doing tutoring online or at the Lafayette Public Library.
My priority lies in what is best for each individual child.
Yes, I offer summer tutoring.
I work all year long and work hard to tailor a summer reading program specifically for your child.
Summer is the time of year where kids will suffer from summer reading loss if they are not consistently reading.
It is important to me that my students do not miss out on this opportune time to close the gap and be secure in reading for the following school year.
This is why I have created and stay committed to a strong summer reading program.

This will depend on the child, the length of the sessions and the frequency of the sessions.
I keep a quick pace and try to do 6-8 activities per session. At this pace, reading remediation could take as little as 18 sessions.
For the best experience, your child needs these materials and tools:
Language and Literacy Teacher
I’m a language and literacy teacher that started tutoring kids online after we had to teach online because of the pandemic. I noticed that when I taught one-on-one during my office hours, amazing things happened. Kids who couldn’t focus in a large group at school or on Zoom, suddenly could during one-on-one sessions and they thrived.
When the private school I worked at began opening up again in person, I no longer wanted to do the hour-long commute to San Francisco twice a day. And I had 2 children at home who were still in distance learning. I did not want to leave them alone.
Online one-on-one services
Once I discovered tutoring reading online as an online reading tutor, I found that I was able to close the gap quickly with my One-on-One Services and I really enjoyed working with kids from all over the world.
Additionally, online tutoring is so convenient for the kids and the parents. You don’t have to drive them across town. The kids are used to working on Zoom. You can easily schedule one hour or two 30-minute sessions a week with little impact to your busy schedule. And I love it because I am still there for my own children.
Tutoring sessions are 50 minutes. Sometimes they go a little longer. For very young students, we can split this into two 25-minute sessions.
I find 50 minutes is the ideal time for the child’s stamina and this allows me to record notes right after.
My tutoring rates are $75 per session.
My secret sauce comes from my ability to connect to your child and make them feel relaxed and happy. I keep a quick pace to keep them engaged and learning but I also am sensitive to their energy levels and moods. I incorporate movement as needed and rewards.
