I am currently a high school English teacher who has worked with students from elementary school through college. I've been teaching for 13 years and have taught in England and the Czech Republic, as well as schools in Chicago and north Mississippi. I have tutored and taught students with Aspberger's and a range of learning differences, as well as gifted students. I am very patient, but expect and encourage the best out of each student, modifying my style to meet their needs.
I have taught at a secondary school in England where 40% of the students had Aspergers, were dyslexic, or fell somewhere on the autistic spectrum. I am flexible and will use a variety of methods to help your child with his or her individual needs.
I have taught high functioning autistic students at various schools. I have the patience and methods to help a child with this particular special need.
I have worked with dyslexic students in the past, from mildly dyslexic to those with more severe learning difficulties. I taught at a Christian school where 40% of the students had learning disabilities, most of whom were dyslexic on some level. I have learned to adapt to a child's individual needs and am flexible in dealing with their needs.
I got a Master's Degree in Linguistics and have learned many ways of teaching vocabulary using sound and etymologies.
After thirteen years of teaching, mostly in high school, I have learned ways to advise students how to get the most out of their study time. I show students how to organize and use mnemonics devices and other methods to help them remember material.
