I specialize in literacy acquisition and the instruction of children who struggle with reading and writing. However, I have many hours of experience as a private tutor in mathematics, science, Spanish, English composition, and reading fluency and comprehension. In classroom settings and during individual lessons, I am warm, patient, and creative. Nothing makes me happier than to see struggling children succeed, which is why I love tutoring so much! I have a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Houston, where I studied literacy development and effective educational intervention practices. Please let me know how I can help your student learn!
