Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with many children who are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Some were medicated, some were not. We worked on managing anger, frustration, organization and increasing focusing individually and/or in groups.

Aspergers

I have run social skills groups for 12 years and have worked with many Aspergers/spectrum children. Skills included making and maintaining eye contact, initiating conversation, joining in at play, and responding appropriately to other social situations.

Autism

I currently work with Autistic children during a weekend social skills class. I work with verbal and non-verbal children. We work on life skills such as identifying emotions, going to a restaurant, playing on a playground, going shopping, riding public transportation etc. I use PECS with the non-verbal students.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been in an elementary setting as both a special education teacher (14 years) and school counselor (12 years). I have tutored in all subject areas with regular and special needs students.

Elementary Science

I have taught science at the elementary level for many years as well as done experiments and projects.

Phonics

I have taught levels k-6 Phonics through various Reading and Phonics programs such as Edmark, Cove Phonics, Target Spelling, Explode the Code- from beginning consonants and vowels to consonant and vowel digraphs.

SAT Reading

To assist students with improving critical reading comprehension, I help them to understand and practice the various types of questions used in the SAT, insist on rigorous vocabulary practice, teach them to analyze the author's tone/attitude in the passages as well as understand the logic of the questions. I assess the student's skills with a diagnostic pre-test and assign regular homework.

SAT Writing

To assist students with improving written expression, I work with them on improving sentences and paragraphs, identifying common sentence errors and identifying common grammar/usage errors. The students work on writing prompts that I grade using the actual rubric. I also work on pace and regularly assign homework.

Special Needs

I have worked with children with many special needs for years. I have worked with Learning Disabled, ADD/ADHD, Autistic, Asperger's and Spectrum and Communication Handicapped. In addition to teaching the basic content areas, I also believe it is important to work in the affective domain and social skills. I have worked on life skills with more challenged/nonverbal students.

Study Skills

I have run Study Skills programs for many years for grades k-6. Depending on the level, topics have included listening skills, organization, time management, test taking skills, following oral and written discussions.

Writing

I have spent many years teaching children how to construct well organized, detailed paragraphs. I teach students how to write personal narratives, "How To" paragraphs, character development, use of humor and many other skills. I use writing prompts from past ASK tests and literature.
