My credentials include a Master’s Degree in Counseling, a Bachelor’s Degree in Exceptional Student Education (K-12) a Georgia Teaching Certification (Special Education) and eight years of teaching experience.
Being a highly adaptable and versatile educator, I have enjoyed the opportunity to teach and counsel a diverse group of children, including those with ADD/ADHD, autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, speech impairments, noncompliant behavior, learning disabilities, mild intellectual disabilities, and physical challenges. These experiences have helped me blossom into a well rounded and compassionate individual, who takes each student’s unique goals, and interests into account, and creates effective lesson plans and activities to accommodate them. I also have experience in teaching in a team-teaching/collaborative type setting.
My greatest capability is facilitating all styles of learners. I develop multi-sensory lesson plans to meet the needs of auditory, visual, tactile, and kinesthetic learners. I also incorporate various forms of technology, learning centers, manipulatives, group work, and thematic units to teach new concepts and materials. Furthermore, I make certain that each student receives individualized praise and encouragement, ensuring that he/she remains motivated and does not become frustrated or quit.
I currently teach Special Education resource and team taught literature classes at a local high school. I welcome the opportunity to tutor your student!
