I have taught in both public and private schools in both New York and California. I have a Life Credential in Multiple Subjects K-12 and adults, and a Life Reading Specialist Credential in both New York and California. I have also completed graduate level classwork towards earning a Preliminary Mild/Moderate Special Education Credential.
I have been a classroom teacher (elementary level), a reading specialist, a special education teacher, an ESL Specialist, and am currently a Community College Learning Assistance Instructor.
My specialty is in the area of Language Arts (Phonics, sight words, reading comprehension, spelling, and writing, as well as college level textbook reading for comprehension through the use of graphic organizers, vocabulary strategies, outlining, semantic mapping, venn diagrams and other techniques).
I like to informally assess the skills of people that I am working with by listening them to read, asking them questions about what they read, and asking them what they think are their difficulties. I encourage them to read the words in their head because this is how fluent readers read, allowing greater comprehension of what is read. I also like to have a writing sample to see what level the people I tutor are currently functioning at.
I enjoy working with children and adults, and people are usually very comfortable working with me.
I took classes through National University and earned a Preliminary Level 1 Resource Specialist Credential. After that I worked as a Special Education Resource Teacher in the CA Public Schools for 7 years working with elementary age students. In this position I worked with many students who were diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, exhibiting behaviors such as not being able to sit still, difficulty listening, impulsivity, not being able to focus, being overactive, not being able to control behavior, or a combination of these.
Through small group or individual instruction, I was able to help these students progress in their studies using a variety of approaches that helped them to focus and control the behaviors that were interfering with their learning.
I majored in Anthropology at Hunter College, N.Y. I am currently a part-time Instructor at the Community College Level teaching textbook reading classes. I also tutor students in writing at one of the Claremont, CA colleges.
I have taken CBEST to become certified as a CA public school teacher. I have taught elementary classrooms, middle school and elementary RSP students, and have been employed as a reading specialist in the CA public schools for many years. My scores on CBEST were high, as well as the language scores. I am qualified to assist students in passing this test, and have EXCELLENT TEST-TAKING STRATEGIES to suggest.
I have a Master's Degree in Education With an Emphasis in Reading. My classwork included classes which qualified me to teach dyslexic students. I have been employed as a Reading Specialist in the public school system for numerous years, and have extensive experience working with dyslexic students.
