ADD/ADHD

I have worked with ADD/ADHD students in many different classrooms. I have a master's in Elementary Education and am certified in the state of Connecticut. I recently passed (180/200) the national Praxis test 371-Teaching students with behavioral disorders and emotional disturbances after taking university classes on this subject. I am furthering my teaching skills by getting a degree in Special Education. In May, I will be finishing up my Masters in Special Education and taking the Special Education Praxis test to be certified K-12 in Special Education (mild to moderate).

Algebra 2

I worked in a high school math lab last fall and taught all types of math skills. I currently teach Honors Algebra II as a long-term substitute at a high school.

Dyslexia

I am a highly-qualified, Connecticut certified teacher with a masters in Elementary Education and a masters in Special Education. I just took the Special Education Praxis Test (5543) to get my certification in Special Education. I have taught students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities, and know instructional strategies to help them learn. I have worked with these students one-on-one, in small groups, and as part of a class.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified teacher with a B.S. and M.S. in Elementary Education. I have taught classes from Preschool through Sixth grade. I enjoy working with students off all ages. My favorite subjects to teach are reading and math, although I have experience teaching social studies, science, health, art, computer, and physical fitness. My education, experience, and excitement to learn makes me a great teacher.

Elementary Math

I am a highly qualified teacher with a M.S. degree in Elementary Education. I have substituted for thirteen years in the public schools, all grade levels and subjects. I am great in math and have tutored my own children in basic math, geometry, prealgebra, and Algebra I and II. I have also taught children phonics and reading skills.

Phonics

I would like to teach Phonics because it is the basis of reading. I taught my children to read using programs such as "Hooked on Phonics". In schools, I have used "Harcout Trophies Reading Program" to teach letters and sounds to young children. Games and music are valuable helps in teaching phonics. I feel confident teaching students phonics.

Praxis

I am a highly-qualified, Connecticut certified teacher who has passed the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators tests (Praxis 1), and the Praxis academic subject tests (Praxis II). I also passed the Special Education: Teaching Students with Behavioral Disorders/Emotional Disturbances test (5372) and just completed the Special Education Core Knowledge and Mild to Moderate Applications test (5543). I have a lot of experience and knowledge with Praxis tests and can teach others how to do well on them.

Reading

I have worked as a NCLB tutor for Norwich Public Schools. I taught reading, writing, and math to students from K-8th grade. I love reading and taught my own children to read when they were young. I know the skills and strategies children need to succeed in reading.

Study Skills

As a lifelong student who is currently working on a second masters in education (this time Special Education), I know how to study and prepare for assessments. I am organized and good at note-taking. The strategies I use in my education will help others to do well in their school work.
I have a B.S. and M.S. in Elementary Education. I am working on a M.S. in Special Education. I have substituted in the public schools for 13 years, all grade levels and subjects. I have tutored children K-6th to meet NCLB standards. I know how to help children study and prepare for tests.
