My name is Kyla, and I am looking for short and long-term tutoring opportunities.
I am currently a Special Education teacher at a high school located on the Southwest Side of Chicago. I have been a Special Education teacher at the high school level for the past two years. I graduated from Western Michigan University in April 2011 were I majored in Special Education and have minored in Elementary/Middle school mathematics. Through these experiences I have had the opportunity to work with students of all ages, in several subject areas, and with different ability levels.
When in the classroom, I work with general education teachers to come up with accommodations and modifications for students with disabilities to ensure their ability to access the general education curriculum. I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that includes a lot of interaction between the tutor and student. I have learned that using concrete examples and providing a structured environment for students with disabilities can greatly improves success.
Over the past two years I have had experience with ACT prep for the English and Reading portions of the test.
I look forward to hearing from you to discuss how my experiences can help contribute to your students goals!
