Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Aspergers

I have four years of experience in working with children and teenagers with autism and Asperger's (worked in San Diego and New York City). During this time, I provided applied behavior analysis intervention. Pedagogies used: Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), play therapy, treatment and education of autistic and related communication handicapped children method (TEACCH), pivotal response (PRT), discrete trial (DTT), social stories, and social skills.

Study Skills

As a graduate instructor, I have taught college students how to write research papers, search for and evaluate scholarly work, and develop critical thinking skills. For four years, I have also taught students with autism and Asperger's how to think critically, and organize their time and school work.
