I have been teaching for the last 6 years. I am focused on working with children with special needs, I have also tutored several general education students in Math, Science and English/ Language Arts. I prefer to work with students using whatever materials are necessary for them to understand the concepts and be successful both with me and their regular classroom teacher. I am available after school, in the evenings and Saturday mornings. I feel that it is important to keep up their skills through the summer so I am available in the summer as well. I have worked with all grades from Kindergarten to High school. I also am skilled in sign language and have found that to be helpful in working with many students.
