My goal as a tutor is to help students learn how to learn so that they will no longer need my help. I establish a calm, harmonious learning environment and employ an all-positive approach. By encouraging students to stretch beyond K-12 curriculum goals, I nudge them toward college-level standards.
I intuitively retool to suit different learning styles and skill levels, and simplify concepts without “dumbing them down.” As an experienced special education classroom leader, I help learners understand increasingly complicated reading assignments. As a published author of dozens of articles, I can teach them to convey ideas precisely and engagingly. Your student will finish each tutoring session better prepared to deal with what's next.
I'm currently a graduate student studying special education. I teach using research-based methods of instruction. As a member of the Council on Exceptional Children, I keep up to date on the very latest research and best practices.
I teach in person and/or via Skype, at your convenience.
