I have been a teaching assistant in a middle school setting for 6 years. I work with students in the reading department doing interventions for fluency and comprehension skills. I also have classroom experience in literature, science and history. I have also raised a daughter with autism who is now in high school and in regular classes with a 3.2 GPA. I still assist her with her work and am familiar with high school work as well. I have written a book about autism and am preparing to speak at a few upcoming events. Prior to becoming a teaching assistant I worked in the electronics industry, video game industry and newspaper industry. I have proofreading experience, copy writing experience and often help students understand why they are learning the things they are learning and how they can be applied to real world situations. I have also worked with special needs children in a religious education program and also worked for SEDOL for a school year. If your child thinks differently or needs explanation on how to understand the literature he/she is reading, I like to bring in real world situations and will often use the internet or other ways of explaining to get the message across. I am proficient in Word and PowerPoint and can also help your student with composing and typing papers or presentations. I look forward to helping your student.
