Hello,

I am recently graduated from the University of Delaware with a master's degree in exceptional children and youth and a concentration in autism and severe disabilities. I will soon have a dual certification in Delaware for elementary and special education as well as the autism certification. As a recent graduate, I am excited to start working with students and look forward to providing a program based on your child's individual needs and abilities.

While my focus is on children with special needs, I would also like to provide tutoring for children in the general education setting (K-8). The methods I have learned and used are equally effective for all students and will be helpful to any student who is experiencing difficulty with their school work or needs some additional supports to more easily master the subject matter.

I can also provide guidance with developing individual learning strategies, learning self-management skills and creating a self-evaluation process - all things that will give your learner the tools s/he needs to become an active part of their own learning process.

I believe everyone can learn - it's simply a matter of finding out how that student learns best and identifying where to start. Additionally, I can work within any behavioral plan your child may have once becoming acquainted with its parameters.

An exceptional teacher sees her students as exceptional. She sets expectations according to the students' strengths and challenges, using her professional knowledge and skills to support the student in achieving their potential. The exceptional teacher doesn't stop there, she knows that students are constantly improving their own skill base and she shifts her expectations accordingly to ensure that the student remains challenged but not frustrated. An exceptional teacher believes her own success is tied to her students'.

I want your student to succeed. Please contact me and we can discuss how I can help.

Regards,

Janette

Autism

I have a Master's degree in Exceptional Youth and Children with a concentration in autism and severe disabilities from the University of Delaware (not yet conferred - awaiting final grades). I have taken, and passed the classes needed for the Delaware autism certification and taken and passed the Praxis special education test.

Elementary (K-6th)

Having just completed a Masters in Education program at the University of Delaware and having passed the Praxis Elementary Education Exam, I am qualified to teach all subjects at the K-6 level in Delaware.
I have instructed students in math, language arts, science, and reading at the elementary level.

English

I hold a bachelor's degree in English and write at a very high level. Most of the work required for both my bachelor's and my master's degrees was in the form of written papers. I have a good understanding of grammar, sentence structure, and content. Additionally, I have experience teaching reading comprehension and beginning writing in ways that can be interesting and fulfilling to your student.

GED

I have a Masters degree in Education and a Bachelors degree in English and Sociology. During the course of my education, I have mastered the content that would be included in the GED exam. Being a teacher I can help you learn it. Because I'm a special education teacher, if you have any problems learning the material, I can figure out a way to teach it to you so that you can understand it.

Grammar

My undergraduate degree in English qualifies me to tutor students in grammar. My grade point average in English was a 3.8, which corresponds to predominantly A grades. All of my graded work was in the form of various research and argument papers and a portion of the grade was always related to mechanics - a portion of which is grammar. I understand and can help you or your student understand the structural rules related to writing/composition whether at a beginning or more advanced level.

Proofreading

I hold a Bachelors degree in English and Sociology and a Masters degree in Education. In the course of my undergraduate education I worked part time proofreading (and typing) papers. Because most of my work at both the undergraduate and graduate levels required me to write extensively, I have mastered all of the components of good writing. These include word usage, spelling, grammar, punctuation, and consistency. Aside from these mechanics of writing, I am also able to ascertain whether the information is presented in a way that allows easy comprehension and can help with the flow of the piece.

Reading

I have taken two reading instruction classes at the master's level and am familiar with intervention reading instruction as well as RTI (response to intervention) currently being used in many schools. I have taught reading from the very beginning - learning letter/sound fluency, through to helping students increase already good reading skills to the point of mastery and comprehension.

If your student is having trouble reading, it is critical that s/he get help as soon as possible. After 3rd grade, students begin to 'read to learn' rather than learn to read and will experience difficulty in all of their subjects if they have poor reading or comprehension skills.

The first step is to find out at what step of the reading process your student is having difficulty, from there it is just a matter of building the needed foundation and acquiring fluency.

SAT Reading

I have completed Masters level work in reading instruction and have experience teaching reading from the beginning (letter/sound identification) through to fluent reading and comprehension.

Additionally, I have taken and scored well on the reading portion of the GRE's, the Delaware state Praxis l and II (teacher qualification assessments) and read/retain at a very high level. I understand and can explain the strategies that give students an edge in taking standardized tests.

Special Needs

I have a Masters degree in Education/Exceptional Youth and Children with a concentration in autism and severe disabilities from the University of Delaware. I have taken, and passed the classes needed for the Delaware autism certification and taken and passed the Praxis special education test and am qualified to teach students with special needs.

My education includes reading and math instruction for students with mild to moderate disabilities, methods of instruction for students with autism and severe disabilities, alternative communication methods (includes PECS and ProloquoToGo), and the planning and implementation of behavioral intervention plans and IEP's.

I have experience developing lessons that meet the Common Core Standards through the Delaware Grade Band Extensions as well as many standard math and reading intervention programs.

As well as having experience teaching academic subjects, I also have experience supporting students in learning life skills such as navigating the community, using money for purchasing, and learning basic hygiene needs.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary is a skill that is built over years from exposure to many and varied texts, for both educational and personal enjoyment. I am well educated, with degrees that even as an undergraduate in college required me to read and understand professional journal and research papers. I have an extensive vocabulary and understand the premise of vocabulary - that every word is built on a root with different affixes and suffixes that can change the root or add additional meaning.

Writing

I hold a Bachelor's degree in English and Sociology and a Master's degree in Education. Because most of my work at both the undergraduate and graduate levels required me to write extensively, I have mastered all of the components of good writing. These include word usage, spelling, grammar, punctuation, and consistency. Aside from these mechanics of writing, I can help the student understand how to present information in a way that allows comprehension and helps the information to flow easily from writer to reader.
