...As the student develops an understanding of letter sounds, decoding of words is added to the program. Real words as well as nonsense words are used. I also use some sight word recognition.

...I have taught every subject at the middle school level (reading, English, math, history, and science) even though it was a self-contained classroom I followed the general education curriculum. I provided more structure, visualization tools, and scaffolding measures to help my students. I have also co-taught and held my own classes at the high school level in pre-algebra and algebra 1.

...Math and reading were my best scores on the ACT and I can also help with preparing someones mindset for a big test. I improved my score from a 22 to a 32 in the 6 months I studied for the ACT. Patrick, my younger brother (13yrs) went from a C in math every semester while I was away, compared to an A-, and now A in math the past two trimesters.
