My background includes teaching Adult GED classes and working with students in all subjects at an alternative education school for students with behavioral problems.
I just completed my master's degree in leadership in teaching with a focus on Special Education. This is a career change for me later in life, so I bring a rich and varied background with much life experience.
I am a strong believer in the learning styles theory and look for the unique style in each student.
As a student who struggled in grade school because of unrecognized learning disabilities, (even though my "IQ" test showed above average intelligence) I understand the unique challenges students with learning disabilities and difficulties face.
I am "old school" in that I grew up in the 60's and 70's, but "new school" in that my recent college education encompasses all the latest "best practices" in education today.
I am a former Social Worker and Counselor and work best with students one on one. This is why I have chosen educational tutoring as my new career choice.
