Early Reading and Writing

My name is Allison Weeden. I started teaching as a ​licensed educator with the Putnam County Board of ​Education in 2008. I taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, ​and 3rd grade.

I love providing multi-sensory reading instruction in ​a peaceful outdoor environment. Services are ​provided at my home, which is located on Buck ​Mountain in Cookeville, Tennessee.

Your student will practice phonemic awareness, ​decoding, fluency, writing, grammar, and ​comprehension in a fun and engaging way.
