I enjoy working with middle and high school students and I have been successful in reaching and motivating them. I am patient, respectful and aware of individual student needs. I have experience as an MCAS tutor and as a home tutor for high school students in several subjects. I have a M.Ed. in Special Education and I am MA licensed to teach English in grades 5-12, and Special Education in grades PreK-12.

My current position as an English Teacher and Special Educator in a therapeutic high school has provided me with significant experience and inspired me to further my work with adolescents. I strive to provide all my students with the skills, strategies and confidence they need to be successful with academics.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a M.Ed in Special Education and I have worked with students with ADD/ADHD for the past five years. My experience has been with students from grades four through twelve. I have worked in a middle school learning center where the focus was helping students use strategies to get organized and be successful in general education classrooms. I have found creative ways to teach and work with students who have difficulty staying focused.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my Initial Certification in K-6 and I have worked with students in grades four through six for two years. My position as an inclusion Special Education Teacher allowed me to be in the regular education classroom so I am familiar with the curriculum at this level.

I have an M.Ed in Special Education from Curry College and I have a Professional MA DESE License in Special Education Grades 5-12. I work at a school for students with emotional and behavioral disabilities and many of my students have moderate to severe learning disabilities.

I have a M.Ed in Special Education and have worked with students who require assistance with study skills for the past five years. I worked in a middle school learning center where the focus was helping students organize and complete assignments independently so they could continue in general education classes as they entered high school.
