I enjoy helping students reach their potential. I have a M.Ed. from Johns Hopkins and have specialized in the teaching of twice-exceptional students (those with learning disabilities and gifted tendencies). I appreciate the unique characteristics of each student and use their areas of strength to enhance their weaker areas. I attempt to make each lesson interesting to the students by making them relevant to their lives. In addition to working with students and their parents, I will also work with the students' classroom teachers, as desired.
I have an M.Ed. and specialized in gifted students with learning disabilities, including ADD/ADHD. My B.A. is in Child Psychology. I have years of experience working with ADD/ADHD students, including those who also exhibit other learning disabilities. I can provide content area tutoring, as well as executive function (organizational) coaching.
Math skills which can be covered, depending on student's assessed level, include (but are not limited to): counting, sorting, categorizing, shape identification, measurement, number line, word problems, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, prealgebra, algebra, geometry. I will work to identify the student's level and strengthen weaker areas, while enhancing stronger skills. I seek to provide a deep understanding of math concepts, so the student can move forward with confidence in his/her abilities.
I have instructed students in note-taking, comprehension strategies, and organizational techniques to aid their memories and study skills.
