As a writer, a teacher, and mother of three, I am familiar with most of the inventories and assessment used to evaluate students (including CSAP), which are used in elementary schools. While my teaching certificate is in special education, I do have B.A. majors in Elementary Education and Psychology, and years of experience working with students who may never qualify for or need special education, but do need tailored intervention and tutoring to succeed in and enjoy learning.
Additionally, with 3 gifted children of my own and a personal history of being labeled as such, I have, through the requests of teachers and parents alike, worked very successfully with gifted underachievers as well as children who are labeled gifted but have accompanying issues from mental health diagnosis and from Asperger's Syndrome. I look forward to helping you!
I have three years of work directly with adult students who are learning English as a Second Language. Because I primarily have worked with adults, the ESL tutoring services I offer are focused on issues adults face using English well enough to function in every day life, using English competently enough to attain and maintain employment, and assisting and editing writing for undergraduate and post graduate papers according to APA standards.
I currently have Colorado teacher's certification to teach students who have developmental disabilities, learning disabilities, and emotional or behavioral challenges from Kindergarten through graduation. I have over 15 years of experience teaching as a special educator, and have also worked as an educational consultant as well. My experience includes individual and group program designs, and these have produced very positive results.
All of my work is with the student and family as a team. Every student has special gifts, and needs that chance to shine!
As a retired teacher, and a professional history including associate professorship, I have years of experiencing in encouraging, promoting, and teaching successful study skills habits for students ranging from elementary grades through college.
