Motivation and experience: I am the child of Italian immigrants and English was not my first language. I struggled in grammar school, but eventually graduated college with honors and a year early. This instilled a mission to help others who were limited by language or learning disabilities of various types. I have tutored autistic twins, emotionally disturbed children, and even children of new immigrants for a major corporation. For years I have taught learning or language disabled and emotionally disturbed students in special classes in public and charter schools. And of course, I tutored my own children at home.
Strengths: I empathize with the challenges children face in learning. I am well educated with a master's degree and 42 additional graduate credits. I am Florida State Certified in school psychology, reading, learning disabilities and a number of K-12 specialties. I have decades of experience, with a library of materials, and a network of other teaching professionals to refer to. And I am relentless, energetic, yet affable and I do not give up easily.
Weaknesses: I am quite diminutive, and this sometimes interferes with credibility from adults, but it is an advantage with children. My foreign language background still shows in sentence structure and vocabulary, although my accent is now completely gone.
I have taught and coordinated Exceptional Student Education, for ADD/ADHD students at the elementary, middle, and high school levels for more than 15 years. I have two Master's Degrees in Education (American University) and Special Education - School Psychology (UVM) with 42 additional credits toward a PhD (mostly FAU). These courses also support my current Florida certifications in Learning Disabilities (includes ADD/ADHD), School Psychology (ADD/ADHD Diagnostic Testing) and Reading. I have also tutored autistic, foreign language speaking, and emotionally disturbed children and founded a charter school for gifted students in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
My own three children had ADHD with learning disabilities, and each required my individual attention, which began in preschool. My youngest two are in college now and my first has graduated; he is now out on his own.

As a child, I was an English Language Learner. My first language was Italian, not English. All through elementary school, I struggled in reading and writing. I overcame this primary handicap to receive my bachelor's degree, with honors in 3 years and go on to two masters degrees. I have taught English to all ages from 2 years old to adults and have over 15 years of experience teaching reading, writing, and math. I understand what it is like to be one these children, because I was one myself.
