I have been teaching and tutoring for ten years. I have a M.S. in education. One of my specialties is working with the following learning disabilities: ADD/ADHD, Asperger's/high functioning autism, dyslexia.

I tutor regular students in all levels of math and English. I also tutor all three sections of the SAT and ACT.

My method is a combination of positive reinforcement and skills practice. I will assess the student's present level of performance. I will then help to develop a learning plan which will assist the child in moving to the next step.

I am also available for online tutoring sessions (Skype and Tutortrove).

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

The English portion of the ACT test requires solid knowledge of grammar and sentence structure. It is important to begin to build the child's vocabulary.

Practice, skills acquisition and having some fun is my method.

ADD/ADHD

ADD and ADHD are learning disabilities that affect a child's ability to focus long enough to retain any information. The ADHD has an added component of hyperactivity and usually occurs in boys.

I have a M.S. in Special Education. I have worked with a number of students with attention difficulties. I find it is best to break the material into small pieces. I try to simplify the language so the concepts are easier to comprehend. Manipulatives and diagrams help to hold the child's attention. Overall, I try to access all three modalities: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Hopefully, the student can make connections through a combination of these methods.


Aspergers

I have a M.S. in Special Education. I specialize in working with kids on the Autism Spectrum. Children that are higher functioning on the Autism spectrum will have issues with socialization and communication.

Quite often children with Asperger's are very bright. They are able to think critically. I encourage a great deal of practice on homework and the material that they are studying in class. I balance this academic work with helping them build social and communication skills.



I believe in being positive but firm.

Autism

I have a M.S. in Special Education. I specialize in working with students on the Autism Spectrum. I can teach them new lessons or just review ones that they have learned in school.

I realize that autism involves deficits in socialization, communication and inflexible behaviors. There are also occasionally intellectual delays that occur. I try to tutor with a positive attitude. I am always kind to my students. I will try to strengthen the areas that they are weak with guided practice and instruction.

Dyslexia

I have a M.S. in Special Education. I have worked with Dyslexic students for the past nine years. Dyslexia is disorder that affects one's ability to decode words, comprehend reading and also write sentences and essays.

I will assess my students initially to determine in what areas the dyslexia is having an effect. Then I will customize the sessions to help them with these difficulties. I will use their school books as well as some of my own materials.

Special Needs

I have a M.S. in Special Education. I specialize in learning disabilities such as ADD, Asperger's/High Functioning Autism, Dyslexia, Nonverbal Learning Disorders.

I have nine years experience working with these students.
