Students feel frustrated when they don't understand how to answer the questions. They want someone to get right to the problem and tell them what is needed to figure out the answers. I am certified in Math, English and Special Education. I understand the many different learning styles all students have included those with Specific Learning Disabilities, Autism, Asperger's, Anxiety, struggles with Long Term and Short Term Memory and organizational difficulties.

I've been trained by Mass. Dept. of Education MCAS test designers. I can help any student who takes the MCAS grades 3-10 and show your child what the scoring judges are looking for on the MCAS writing prompts and open response questions.

ADD/ADHD

I have a Master's degree in Special Education. I am a Special Education teacher at Whittier Vocational Technical High School. I teach inclusion math, science, English and history classes. I have experience teaching students with ADD/ADHD. My duties include developing accommodations to support students in being successful in the least restricted environment.

Algebra 1

A typical lesson would first include about 5 minutes of what I call mental math. These are math problems that are meant be done just in your head not on paper. For instance what is 1/4 of 1000. What is 1/2 of 6000. Then several minutes reviewing previous homework from the week. Then moving on to focusing on what is due the next day and what type of skills will be important for recalling previously taught formulas that will be critical to solving problems presented in class.

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra math the past several years. A typical lesson would first include about 5 minutes of what I call mental math. These are math problems that are meant to be done just in your head not on paper. For instance what is 1/4 of 1000. What is 1/2 of 6000. Then several minutes reviewing previous homework from the week. Then moving on to focusing on what is due the next day and what type of skills will be important for recalling previously taught formulas that will be critical to solving problems presented in class.

Aspergers

I have a Master's degree in Special Education. I have worked for 7 years as a special education teacher. I have worked in both the self contained and inclusion settings with students with Asperger's. I have complete Graduate level courses given by the Dept of education in Asperger's and Autism.

Autism

I have a Master's degree in Special Education. I have worked for 7 years as a special education teacher. I have worked in both the self contained and inclusion settings with students with autism. As a special educator, I help developed Behavior Intervention Plans to help students to succeed.

Career Development

As a teacher I must create transition plans for students about to graduate from high school. This includes resume writing, job interviewing skills, proper greets and appropriate cover letters. In addition I currently work with students to improve their hygiene and overall appearance to prepare for the post secondary education.

Chess

I love to play chess. I play daily with a group of students and teach them the fundamentals of the game. We also have an after school group that meets to allow for extended play. I have been playing chess since I was 8 years old, playing in local and regional tournaments.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified and have my license in Elementary Education from the Dept. of Education in Massachusetts. I have a daughter in 6th grade and understand how younger children approach learning. I enjoy math and reading the most. My mother was a teacher at the elementary level and I have a niece and sister-in-law that teach first grade.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is the foundation for learning higher math in the later grades. I currently tutor student K-8 helping them with multiplication, division as well as fractions. My background in special education has helped create ways to present math problems visually instead of the typical solving equations on paper. Students need to know how to apply these skills to real world situations and I have the resources to help any student.

Geometry

When I took Geometry in high school I loved it. Then when I went to college and I had a chance to take a higher level math course and Geometry was offered I jumped at the chance. When the opportunity at my school came to teach Geometry I knew just what to do. I take the shapes and images on paper and I make them come to life so students can understand how to solve the formulas needed to figure out the answers.

I know what a struggle it is to pass the MTLE. I have passed the English grades 5-8 and 8-12 MTLE as well as the ELL TEST grades 5-12. In addition I passed the Foundations of reading, General Curriculum tests on the first attempt with successful study tips. In addition I am certified in Elementary Education, special education. I have passed the Communication and Literacy tests in both the Vocational areas and Academic areas. I also passed he Radio/TV vocational MTLE.
