I have been a Resource Specialist at a high school for 28 years. I work with students who have learning challenges, teaching all subjects, teaching study skills and teaching algebra and CHSEE math classes. I use a variety of strategies to help students understand concepts. I have experience in diagnosing areas of weakness and can break down concepts so that students can understand all the parts of the whole.

I use multisensory techniques for teaching reading-phonics, comprehension and critical thinking.
