Hi! My name is Candy. I am a self-made private tutor with over 20 years of experience under my belt! I started out studying pre-medicine at a small, very competitive college in the south, then thought I wanted to join the Peace Corp and finished with a B.A. degree in Sociology. Since I have always gravitated to teaching in a very natural way, starting with running the neighborhood "school" in my basement as a child, I next started taking special education coursework at Trenton State College, but ended up starting my family instead. I eventually made the choice to stay home and raise my two boys, so that I could remain integrally involved with their schooling.
As my children, and those of my family and neighbors, started having difficulties with math and science in their elementary years, I jumped in without hesitation to "give them a few pointers." This very quickly turned into a private business for me that has been extremely rewarding!
I can truly say that every student I have worked with continues to surprise me with his or her own brand of "uniqueness," which always includes a special learning style and lots of untapped potential waiting to be unleashed. I still get such pleasure out of seeing that light bulb go off!
If you need help with basic math or science, Algebra, Geometry, Earth Science, Biology, GED, SAT, and/or overall study skills, I would love to talk to you. But don't just take my word for it, talk to students of mine who have turned an almost-failing into a definitely-passing, and not only lived to tell about it, but actually had fun along the way! I would like to think that I specialize in: calming the frenzied, simplifying the confusing, and building up the downtrodden because EVERYONE SHOULD TASTE THE SWEETNESS OF SUCCESS!
I have NJ and PA teaching certificates and a Master's Degree in special education, grades K-12. I have worked as a private tutor with ADD/ADHD students for over 20 years. I specialize in organization and study skills, and pride myself on simplifying the confusion and frustration often experienced by these students.
My extensive special education background (MAT training at TCNJ and over 20 years of teaching) has prepared me to assist students diagnosed with dyslexia using proven techniques and methodologies which focus on coding, decoding, and reading comprehension strategies within the specific content instruction.
I believe that ALL students have "special needs" and possess a unique learning style that must be identified in order to allow them to fully develop their academic potential. As a certified special education teacher with a M.A.T. degree, I have been mentoring to students with academic needs for over 20 years, and hope to continue providing support for another 20 and counting!
The importance of strong study skills cannot be overemphasized. I am comfortable identifying a student's personal learning style in order to reinforce their organization, time management, note-taking and test preparation skills within and as an integral part of their subject work completion. As a certified special education teacher with an M.A.T. degree, I have been offering support of this nature to students K-12 and beyond for over 20 years, and it is my pleasure to continue doing so!
