I teach Language Arts and Social Studies for the Special Education department in my district. I absolutely love my job. I have experience doing private tutoring as well as after school tutoring in my school district. I have experience working with older and younger students. I have a proven track record in my building for raising student's test scores and classroom performance. I also have experience working with students with varying degrees of special needs. My son is on the autism spectrum and I do quite a bit of work with him in my home as well. My personality as a teacher is calm, directive when needed, soft spoken, and encouraging. I believe you can help a child learn by building them up with pointing out what they do well, and building from there. I also don't like doing boring work, so I try to make learning as much fun as possible. Research shows that if a student is engaged and interested in the task, he or she will be more successful. The students I work with know they can't get much past me, and I will hold them to high expectations, but I care about them and I treat them with respect like the human beings that they are. I would love to meet your child to see if we would be a good fit.
