In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I hold a bachelor's degree in special education, a master's degree in elementary education and an endorsement in learning disabilities. I have taught in the elementary classroom for nearly 30 years. During that time within my classroom, I worked with many children with an ADD/ADHD diagnosis.
With my degree in Special Education, endorsement in Learning Disabilities, and nearly 30 years of classroom experience, I have had the pleasure of working successfully with autistic children. They can be a bit of a challenge in the classroom, but one on one they can be delightful as you build a relationship and earn their trust. A child with this diagnosis is often quite bright and just needs help bringing them from their "world" into the task at hand. When that happens, what a joy it is to see!
With a Master's Degree in Elementary Education, a Bachelor's in Special Education, endorsements in both Learning Disabilities and Reading, and nearly 30 years of classroom experience, I have the tools needed to work successfully with a child diagnosed with Dyslexia. I would work from where the child can read independently and progress from there, thus building from where they are successful. This is so important as a child builds confidence.
I received a dual degree in special education and elementary education from Illinois State University. My master's in elementary education was from Valparaiso University. I taught in the elementary schools for nearly 30 years. Upon retiring from the elementary schools, I taught reading comprehension, children's literature and a student teaching seminar at the college level.
Especially as a child progresses through the elementary grades into more content areas it becomes very important to know how to read for information which is quite different than reading for pleasure. It is also important to know how to use their time and assimilate information as they prepare for a project, a test, or just keeping up with assignments. I have been successful in helping children build their "toolbox" of strategies with both my classroom children and my own children as they progressed through the grades.
