To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Catherine O. and I am a Junior at Towson University. I am an Elementary/Middle Special Education Major. I have had a lot of experience working with students with disabilities. My philosophy for teaching is that every child is capable of learning, and it is my job to help them succeed. I try my hardest to find strategies that work best for my students to help them learn. My passion is working with students with disabilities.
My experience is that I have tutored a middle school boy with autism for about 3 years in religious education. I have also volunteered at Arbutus Middle School in the self-contained FALS classroom. I helped out with their summer school program in the summer of 2012 and volunteered in the classroom from August 2012 to January 2013. I have completed observation hours at Villa Cresta Elementary School in the self-contained Deaf and Hard of Hearing first grade, third grade, and Kindergarten classrooms. I have also completed 30 hours of field experience at Fort Garrison Elementary School in a first grade classroom, and received a lot of hands-on experience with small group and one-on-one instruction with students who were struggling in reading and math. I have been in both self-contained and integrated classrooms. I have worked with students with autism, Down Syndrome, ADHD, learning disabilities, as well as those struggling with fine motor impairments.
My coursework so far has been in working with families of students with disabilities, assistive technology, elements of reading and language arts, principles and practices of reading and language arts, children’s literature, and human development. I am currently taking classes in infant and child development, current methods of teaching students K-12 in special education, formal and informal tests and measurements for students with disabilities K-12, and current methods for teaching students with social, emotional, and motor development disabilities. I have written a lot of lesson plans as well as administered and scored the Woodcock-Johnson Test of Achievement and completed an Educational Achievement Report on the results. I am very familiar with universal design for learning and differentiated instruction, and have written lesson plans using these methods of instruction.
I have also completed training to be a Baltimore County Public Schools volunteer.
I feel that I possess the necessary qualifications required for tutoring, and that my coursework and experience will allow me to excel as your tutor. Thank you for your consideration.
Sincerely,
Catherine O.
