Hi everyone, and thanks for viewing my profile. I sit here with my cockatoo on my shoulder. She is kissing me and talking so sweetly. If a parrot loves me, you are sure to do the same. Parrots are temperamental and picky.
I have been a successful teacher and principal for 30 years combined.
I completed an early retirement due to the needs of my family. I miss working with students and encouraging them toward success. I have unique ways to challenge the students in fun less tedious ways to get the job done.
My years of experience in special ed have taught me that what I present to the students in my school can still be presented to general ed students who need a secondary manner to understand the material and forge ahead in the curriculum. Scaffolding, use of games, mnemonics, visualizations, images, computer generated projects can assist a student in "getting it" when just reading the text, answering the questions and studying do not help the student gain access to the curriculum. I am also skilled in teaching students to pass the CAHSEE exams.
My interest is NOT to tutor secondary math beyond pre-algebra. I am familiar with Lindamood-Bell practices for teaching reading and my philosophy centers on positive reinforcement, respect and humor. Green and Levine are my heroes when it comes to understanding students with ADHD, non-verbal learning disorders and emotional disabilities.
I have been successful in improving behaviors of students via behavioral intervention approaches that increased my graduation rate by 75% over 3 years.
If this is the kind of person you seek, call me- I will tutor throughout North San Diego County.

Approved subjects

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.

Phonics

I have experience teaching phonics at beginning levels or re-teaching older students how to approach reading through a phonetic system. I have some Lindamood-Bell training that is helpful as well.

Special Needs

I have been a successful teacher and principal for 30 years combined. All of my teaching has been for students with special needs: learning disabled, emotionally disturbed and functional skill levels. I focus on learning styles and compensatory skills. I have used all aspects of RTI, individualized instructional accommodations, interventions and SDAIE methods.

I found that if I included technical reading and writing into the lessons that were specific to something the student was building or using or gaming (or something career bound) they were more interested. This supplemented the general curriculum that they needed to study.

WOW, try to remember ... I do I do! It was in the mid 1970s when I was not only in grad school, I was 7 months pregnant! During my summer months I purchased a rather loud, boisterous parrot, a black conure. No matter what I did, that conure did not want anything to do with me. He did not talk, did not come out of the cage; unless I was out of the room of course! I tried to make him happy, honest... read more
