Working together with parents, tutors, school personnel, and other professionals, Wright Academics wants to ensure that each student is receiving the best targeted and individualized instruction and support possible.
My passion is helping students and families succeed so that they achieve their maximum potential in and out of the classroom. With over 25 years of experience working with children and their families in public and private schools, as well as in private practice, my focus is understanding the individual’s learning profile, guiding families of children with learning differences and matching students to the tutor or coach that best fits the student. I believe in not only matching educational needs to the right tutor’s skills, but matching a student to the tutor with the right personality.
After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education, I knew that I wanted to teach students with learning differences. I continued my education at Goucher College receiving my Master’s degree in Education with a certification as a Reading Specialist. Being a life long learner, I have also completed a variety of specialized coursework to help students learn, including Executive Functioning Training, Orton-Gillingham, Visualization and Verbalization, Project Read, Teaching Writing to Dysgraphic Students, Writing Research Papers for Students with Learning Differences and Teaching Multi-Sensory Math for Struggling Math Students.
I have experience working as a classroom teacher, Special Education Team member, Orton Gillingham One on One tutor, Academic and Executive Skills Coach.
