In addition to a Master’s degree in Education, I am certified by the Illinois State Board of Education in elementary and secondary Learning Behavior Specialist.
I use a broad range of methods and strategies to ensure student success, each of which is adapted to the learning style of the student. I have found that working with a student's teacher and, if applicable, IEP team, is very valuable in the tutoring process. I am very adept at interpreting and applying intervention plans, individual education plans, and NWEA reports. I especially enjoy the one-to-one relationship of tutoring, within which I can quickly diagnose a student’s weaknesses and work with him or her on precisely those issues that need addressing. With my direction and your hard work, we can help you find the success that eludes you in the classroom environment!
I have served as a special education teacher in a variety of roles and I am familiar with the many aspects of delivering special education services to students with Aspergers Syndrome, ADHD, specific learning disabilities, emotional and behavioral disorders. I have experience working with students on a variety of assistive technology products including Dragon Naturally Speaking, Kurzweil 3000, Co-Writer, Write: OutLoud, Intellitools Classroom Suite, Smart Boards, and Intellipics among others. In addition, I am familiar with accessing and using digital texts and have completed coursework at UIC in Assistive Technology.
