Hi, my name is Susan and I have been a paraprofessional for Denver Public Schools for seven years. During the past four years I worked in special education and tutored students with various learning disabilities including ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Information Processing Disorder, and Non-verbal learning disability. I tutored students for reading and writing for one year. My bachelors degree is from UCLA where I majored in English. I am currently enrolled in the Master of Arts in Education program at Metropolitan State University of Denver. My goal is to combine my experience with my ability to be a compassionate and nurturing educator who will have a positive impact on the students I teach. I am mature, patient, and enthusiastic and will strive to accelerate progress for your child.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have tutored students with ADD/ADHD while working as a special education paraprofessional with Denver Public Schools. I understand I need to be creative while helping a student focus. I have empathy for special needs students.

Aspergers

I have been a special education paraprofessional for Denver Public Schools for four years. I have experience tutoring a student with Aspergers Syndrome. I realize I need to offer patience and respect in order to create a positive experience. I want to build on your child's strengths. I believe in visual methods when teaching a child with AS. I have found that positive reinforcement works well for Aspergers students.

Autism

I have been a special education paraprofessional with Denver Public Schools for the past four years. For the past two years I have primarily tutored students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I realize that structure is very important when teaching students with ASD. I understand what you are going through because my son has ASD. I want to build on your child's strengths and create an effective learning environment.

Elementary (K-6th)

Hi, my name is Susan and I have been working as an elementary school paraprofessional for the past three years. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from UCLA. I often work with students one-on-one. I enjoy tutoring students and find I connect well with the children I teach. I like to understand how each student learns so I can teach them in a way that works well. I make sure each student thoroughly understands the concept before we move onto the next concept or subject. I always create a fun and interesting atmosphere which makes learning enjoyable.

Phonics

For the past three years I have worked as a paraprofessional at an elementary school. I enjoy teaching phonics and helping children learn how to read. Phonemic awareness has many levels, and it includes the ability to decide whether spoken words rhyme, to know what spoken word you would have it you removed a sound, and to manipulate phonemes to form different spoken words. While tutoring students, I like to create a fun and interesting atmosphere.

Special Needs

I have been working as a special education paraprofessional for Denver Public School for the past 5 years. I have been tutoring students one-on-one most of this time. I have experience teaching students with many learning disabilities as mentioned in my profile. I work hard to understand how each student learns so I can connect with them in a way that works.
