Who Am I?
As a US certified K-12 Special Education teacher, a CERI certified Structured Literacy Dyslexia Interventionist, and the founder of Dyslexia PowerUp, I am passionate about teaching dyslexic children how to read, spell and write.
I have twenty-three years of teaching experience working as an international school learning support specialist at premier international schools in Asia and the Middle East. Since 1992, I have been instructing primary-aged children from grades 1 to 6 with a wide range of needs with general and specific learning disabilities, speech and language needs, attention disorder, executive functioning difficulties, social communication needs, social-emotional and behavioral difficulties, sensory processing issues, motor skill problems, and English language needs.
I have developed and managed school-based Learning Support / Special Education programs and services for students with learning needs from grades 1 to 12 in international schools. I worked in partnership with parents by advising, guiding, coaching, and supporting them using the collaborative consultation model. I offered home intervention programs and school liaison services to local and expat families and provided testing services to homeschooling expat families.
Throughout my teaching career, I have always had a special interest in working with children with Dyslexia. Becoming certified at the Associate level through the Orton-Gillingham Academy, USA (formerly known as AOGPE) was a life-changing experience. It also reignited my lifelong passion for teaching children with Dyslexia. I am currently pursuing advanced training at the Certified level with the Orton-Gillingham Academy so I can continue to serve and support children with Dyslexia.
I am a professional member of the Orton-Gillingham Academy (OGA, USA), International Dyslexia Association (IDA, USA), British Dyslexia Association (BDA, UK), National Association of Special Education (NASET, USA), Reading League (TRL, USA), and the Register of Educational Therapists (Asia) (RETA, Singapore).
I look forward to getting to know your child and helping them succeed! I am excited to change the trajectory of your child's life! I also hope to have a positive and powerful impact on your journey as a parent to a dyslexic child.
Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have questions about my services, Orton-Gillingham, Structured Literacy, or Dyslexia
