I currently teach 11th grade English, language arts, and creative writing at a private school catering to kids who are gifted, but have a range of learning disabilities including Aspergers, high functioning autism, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, and, dysgraphia. My experience in this type of learning environment has helped me tailor curriculum and assessment to meet a vast array of challenges, especially with reading comprehension and writing. My previous teaching experience (20 years) was at the university level, teaching and mentoring students in several different departments always with an emphasis on critical reading, thinking, and writing.
My personal philosophy is that learning is best achieved when there is a mutual respect developed between teacher and student. Learning is first and foremost, a two way street, and over the years I have learned as much from my students as they have learned from me! The only way to accomplish this is through patience, understanding, and caring.

I work with students on how to effectively prepare for weekly tests and final exams. I also prepare students to write essays using scaffolding and other "chunking" techniques to break the larger task into smaller manageable components in order to facilitate task completion. These strategies are very helpful to students struggling with study habits, as it helps them manage workloads that often seem unmanageable.
