I have 16 years' experience as a teacher (special education, secondary English, GED prep, adult basic education, and college), and I have worked as a school psychologist for 20 years. I can help students with all subjects at the elementary level, and I can help with English/Language Arts and history/social studies at the secondary level. I can also help with your research paper, thesis, or dissertation. I have experience with teaching writing skills at all levels, and I have also written and published several magazine articles. I recognize that there are differences in learning styles, and I can adjust your instruction accordingly. Learning is fun, and we can make it that way again.

Teaching students who have ADD and/or ADHD requires specific techniques and procedures in order to be effective. I have twenty years of experience in the identification of ADD/ADHD in students, and I have developed learning plans to address the specific needs of this population.


Students with Aspergers (an autism spectrum disorder) have special behavioral characteristics that must be taken into account and addressed in a tutoring situation. This includes emphasizing concrete instructional methods and avoiding unnecessary abstract concepts and the use of idioms. I have twenty years of experience in the identification of Aspergers/autism in children and adults, and I have also developed learning plans to address the specific needs of this population.


I have first-hand knowledge and experience of the process of acquiring a second language. My family came to this country as immigrants, and we learned to speak, read, and write English over the years after our arrival. It is a difficult process, and I understand what English language learners are going through.


I have taught evening GED preparation classes for several years (through a community college program). The students involved ranged in age from 16 to 60+. Each student had his/her own unique learning style and ability, and the education presented to them needed to meet their individual needs. It was gratifying to see when the students were successful in earning their GED certificates.

Special Needs

I have taught in special education programs for over 15 years, both at the elementary and secondary levels. These children have had various needs, and they required different services and approaches in order to effectively meet their needs. The key is to identify their current level of performance, determine what their specific needs are, find effective teaching methods and approaches that will work with that student, and implement a learning plan to meet their individual needs.

Study Skills

Effective study skills are very important in order to gain knowledge and understanding of a subject. I have taught 'Study Skills' classes at the secondary school level, in which students have worked on obtaining the skills necessary in order to complete an assignment, produce a paper, or to take an examination. It is also important to develop appropriate study skills at the elementary school level, so that these 'habits' will continue with the student as he/she progresses through school.
