I currently work as a licensed (MA State, MA Department of Education) and certified (ASHA) school-based Speech-Language Pathologist.
I have two years of formal experience as a tutor, and more than four years of working as an educator working with students in 1:1 -1:3 ratios on individual learning skills.
My instructional expertise is within the area of expressive and receptive language with a focus on reading and writing. I currently work with students who are in upper elementary and middle school (4th-8th graders) on skills that include -- but are not limited to, organization, planning, brainstorming, formulating responses, comprehension, sentence struture/grammar, spelling and reading. These areas of instruction have an impact on ALL content areas of learning (English language arts, history, science and math)!
I have experience working with students who have special needs including Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADD/ADHD, Executive Functioning, Cerebral Palsy, etc., and take pride in my ability to modify lessons to meet the needs of different kinds of learners.
I especially enjoy creating unique materials and strategies to supplement one's learning (i.e., For a young woman who struggles with the grammar element 'is/are', I use images of popular popstars and groups as visual aids). I find that my students respond well to my enthusiastic approach, and engage well in lessons.
