Nice job on how to publish. It cleared up a lot of questions for me. I've subscribed. Wonder if you could do some things on creating advanced actions that AREN'T involved with simulations. Understanding advanced actions is what's stalling me out! I'd be happy to send you an example of what I want, but can't make happen no matter how many times I try. Too much to ask, I know, but thought I'd give it a shot! :D Can't wait wo watch the rest of your Captivate 8 vids! 5 stars....

I so love your videos. As a teacher of kids who failed to learn to read at school, I would love it if you offered an option to have the lyrics with the songs! Not the closed captions--they're barely noticeable. But the real lyrics---oh, wow. What a learning tool THAT would be! Thanks for the great stuff you share.

+Paula Lee Bright We will be adding the lyrics/text to this video soon! We currently have about 10 videos with text overlays for ours songs and will continue to make more. Your wish is our command! :)

Great gamification infographic that clarified ideas I've been struggling with for months on my course presentations. I'm finally out of the rut I was stuck in!

Saw your comment on the Gamification MOOC Q&A site-- It looks like it's 7-8PM on Jan. 20th.  There's a box on the right side of the site with details.  :)

Yes, I've seen both, Chris. I wonder how far you could go with turning CD songs into hilarious or interesting videos? What software do you use? I too don't have kids, but--have LOTS of "my kids!"

+Paula Lee Bright Not sure. It would be fun to see. This kind of sums it up. http://drjeanandfriends.blogspot.com/2015/03/pepperoni-pizza.html

In addition to continuing my 1-on-1 teaching reading online to kids who've failed to learn in the schools, I'm now creating a program for those who can't afford a tutor. It's WRONG that only folks with $$ can help their kids!

Why on earth would you, for children's learning, have a mandatory 30 second ad? I'm outta here, and so are my students. That's crazy. $$$$$ mongering.

Could you tell me what those ten are? I'd LOVE to use them! Thank you. 

P.S. Is there any way I can be notified?

I help kids who can't read to succeed—online!
Introduction
I love tutoring struggling readers online—and it works! Kids with reading problems fascinate me, and I know how to help. I was a public school teacher when I ran into health issues and had to retire. I missed teaching terribly!

This was before the days of all the online schools, and I'm so happy that I developed my own teaching studio to tutor kids who can't read, or are failing in school because of reading problems.             

All my passion goes into my teaching. It's my heart, my soul, and my life. I'm a supremely happy, lucky lady. :)

If you know a child with reading problems, you can find me at http://yourchildwillread.com   
Bragging rights
I can teach almost any child to read. I love my work, and my children sense that, and they come to care about reading too.

  • Your Child Will Read
    Reading Teacher, Director, Reading Tutor, 2010 - present
    I teach children who fail to learn to read at school or homeschool. We work online, using Skype. I share my screen. Every lesson is based on exactly what the child needs to learn at that moment in time. In the next lesson, we review what was learned, then move on to new stories. I love it! I'm currently working on an interactive reading program for kids whose parents can't afford a tutor. I hope to make it amazingly affordable. Coming soon.
