Rebecca is a literacy specialist and certified dyslexia practitioner with over 20 years of experience in education as a psychologist, teacher, and tutor. She has experience teaching emergent readers, older readers, and students with learning disabilities, and has had a lot of success using the structured multi-sensory Wilson Reading System, an Orton-Gillingham based program. Her sessions focus on improving phonemic awareness, decoding, high frequency word reading, fluency, and comprehension by using visual, auditory, and kinesthetic-tactile techniques.
Her goal is to foster positive thinking in her students, who often find they are capable of more than they thought possible. She loves guiding students along their reading journey and seeing them gain confidence as their skills improve.
Rebecca is also available to evaluate students to determine the underlying causes of their reading and writing difficulties so that intervention plans can be developed to address their weaknesses. She currently works with grades 1-7. To find out more or to request an interview, please click the link below.
What parents are saying:
We've been working with Rebecca for a number of years and without her, our son wouldn't be where he is today reading-wise. He has dyslexia and has struggled since a young age, but given Rebecca's knowledge and training in this space, she's helped him improve his reading and comprehension. He has improved dramatically and while he still struggles, he is more confident in the classroom. Rebecca is a great communicator, flexible and understands the needs of our child. And luckily, my son enjoys working with her even though he's not a fan of reading. I can't say enough wonderful things about Rebecca! LP
She is so kind and friendly and makes it fun with games. I never thought my daughter would want to go to tutoring right after school, but she LOVES it! Rebecca is excellent and I’ve seen great improvement even just after the first session! I highly recommend! JS
