Provider Bio

As a homeschooling mom of 4, I have been teaching all ages/grades since 1999. I graduated from UCLA after studying Computer Science and Psychology which helped me as my journey led to getting my certificate in Assistive Technology and then my Master’s in Educational Technology. I became passionate about Literacy as a critical life skill when I realized my youngest child was not being taught to read in the public schools. He was diagnosed at 2 with nonspeaking autism and there just wasn’t a clear path for him to learn to read in the schools. I decided it was time that I learned the methods to teach ALL learners. As an Assistive Technology Specialist working with the California Charter Schools I began to meet more students with a primary diagnosis of Dyslexia, while setting up their accommodations and increasing their access to curriculum, I realized that they had not been given great reading instruction and it had affected all of their subjects and often their confidence. I am proud to have become a reading specialist and enjoy finding the spark in every student on their path to becoming a confident learner.
