I am a former lawyer turned special education teacher. I have four of my own kids, one with severe disabilities. I taught special education classes at a junior high and high school. My tutoring experiences have come not only from my teaching career, but also my day to day experiences with my own children (4th to 10th grade). I have taught writing, literature, history, study skills, and ACT preparation for reading and writing. My philosophy is that everyone learns differently, and that there are many ways to teach/re-teach a skill.
