I am a former special education teacher from Arizona who moved to this area in 1998. I have taught high school special education language arts, middle school math and language arts, and high school regular language arts, as well as tutored college learning disabled/ADD/ADHD students in a variety of subjects as part of a University program.
I usually talk to the student and/or the parents to find out just what the needs of the student are, then talk with them about how best to accomplish the student's goals during tutoring. Every student is different, so I try to match the methods to the student's needs and learning style.
I have been working as a tutor with students in the University environment for the last twelve years, and enjoy helping students work through difficulties they are having. It gives me a real sense of accomplishment to know that with my help a student has successfully mastered the requirements of a class. I also think it helps keep me thinking, myself, and I feel more connected to the world at large by my involvement with the younger generations.
