About Me

IMG_0923 (2).jpg

I am a wife and mother of three children.  I worked in Early Childhood Education for over 18 years.  During that time, I founded and directed an Early Childhood Education program at my church in 2009.  This program received the highest ratings in Kindergarten Readiness scores for the duration of the program.  When it became evident that two of my children were struggling in school, I knew that I needed to be able to help my own children with their education.  It took over two years to be able to understand why my children were not learning at the same rate as their peers.   After extensive neurological testing, my two children were diagnosed with Dyslexia.  The severity of the Dyslexia ranges from mild to severe.  The Orton Gillingham Approach was the recommended method for remediation by the neuropsychologist.  To my dismay, there were no certified Orton Gillingham practitioners in my area.  I wanted to get my children the help they needed, so I decided to get trained in the Orton Gillingham approach.  I went on to obtain my certification and  became a certified Orton Gillingham practitioner.

What Happy

Parents & Students Say


My daughter began the 7th grade reading at a Kindergarten level. We tried so many ways to get her the help she needed but we would always get the same response, “She will get it soon.” Well, that “soon” never came until my daughter began being tutored using the Orton Gillingham approach.  My daughter began being tutored the summer of her 8th grade year.  The progress my daughter has made is amazing! I can’t say enough good things about this program.  Ms. Angela is kind, compassionate, and puts her full heart into her work.  My daughter is now in the 9th grade, and reading at a 5th grade level or higher and her comprehension score is at beginning 9th grade! This program has changed our lives not only did my daughter learn to read, but she gained confidence and independence.
