I am patient with students who have a different learning style and love to encourage students who do not like to read by giving them a purpose for reading
. I have been a teaching assistant in a middle school setting for 8 years. I work with students in the reading department doing interventions for fluency and comprehension skills. I also have classroom experience in literature
. I have also raised a daughter with autism
who has been accepted to the University of Dubuque in Fall of 2015 and will major in Business
I just received my BA in Liberal and Integrative Studies from the University of Illinois, Springfield and completed a class on tutoring. I am proficient in DBQ type writing
and have knowledge of MLA and APA formats, as well as annotated bibliographies.
I have written a book about autism and have spoken to a few groups. 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.

For a student with a 504 Plan or an I.E.P., advanced vocabulary can be a real challenge on standardized tests. For many students, so much time has been spent on study skills and reading...
Okay, it is almost the 4th of July and you and the kids are already bored! It has been rainy, or too hot, or too buggy....you know all the excuses. So here are 5 things I suggest to get over the summer slump:
1. Take a walk with your camera - take pictures of anything interesting - not a real, true photo, but get close up and take a picture of a leaf, a bug, an blade of grass and upload them...
Summer is here - the kids could not wait until they could have their summer days with no homework or a schedule and suddenly they are bored.
Don't let the summer slide hit your kids this summer. The best way to keep them engaged in learning without them thinking they are learning is to develop a summer learning unit.
When my son was about 5, we would pick a topic and then explore every...
