Dyslexia, ESL, English tutor-phonemic awareness, phonics, reading fluency, comprehension, grammar, sentence structure, writing, punctuation, vocabulary acquisition.

Methodology

I use an assortment of teaching materials and methods depending on the needs of the student(s). Associated games are often a part of each lesson to facilitate the learning of new concepts. I use the Susan Barton reading and spelling system in tutoring dyslexic children as the basis for study. It is an Orton-Gillingham based system. For English language learners, I use a variety of different materials and focus on phonemic awareness and phonics as a basis for English learning unless students are able to pass out of this initial phase. A part of phonemic awareness is pronunciation of each continent and each vowel. Materials that are used for dyslexic learners, ESL learners, or regular learners of English are based on the determined English and English reading level. Classes can be done online or in person.

Background

I am an awesome dyslexia, ESL, and Intensive English teacher with over 20 years experience in China, Thailand, Guatemala, Ecuador, and the US. I am a screener for Dyslexia and trained to do various types of English related assessments. I am a certified Texas teacher and have a master's education in Theology & Christian education. I also have deaconess certification and am fluent in English, Spanish, and Thai.

I have known Miss Nelson since 2011 when she was a teacher at the same school where I worked. The school was BCIS (Buena Vista Concordia International School). Miss Nelson is so kind, thoughtful, quick-thinking, and patient. She is very passionate about teaching and helping children improve their English skills. Her methods are so innovative and creative based on her more than 20 years teaching experience. Every child loves Miss Nelson as do their parents. Fellow teachers and staff relied on her for advice on how to teach English to their Chinese students, too. She was a great asset to the school. Additionally, she put a lot time to research the methods for teaching dyslexic children. In addition to teaching regular learners of English, she has taught many dyslexic children how to read and spell using a modified USA OG program for dyslexic learners. Because of her assistance, those Chinese dyslexic children who stayed with Miss Nelson long-term advanced their reading and writing skills immensely and now read at or above their grade levels. Miss Nelson teaches phonemic awareness, pronunciation, phonics, writing sentences using basic sentence patterns, writing essays of various kinds, the 6 traits of writing, reading comprehension, reading fluency, and reading accuracy. She also teaches spelling, grammar, mechanics of writing, vocabulary acquisition, and Greek and Latin roots.

You will have no other teacher who will care so much for you, and At the same time you will have to work hard under her guidance. And you will be successful and surprise yourself. Christie Nelson worked with me for two years when I was Head of School and these results happened over and over again.
