I am a masters level special education teacher with over 15 years of experience working with individuals with different abilities and learning styles. I have diagnostic, prescriptive, and instructional experience with Kindergarten through Transition Age students who need alternative programming.

I work to enhance a student's strengths and develop strategies to compensate for weaknesses.

My experience includes specialized reading, writing, math, and behavioral supports for alternative learners.

I am seeking a few very special students to tutor.

Thank you for your consideration.
