Before becoming a stay-at-home mom to my one-year-old daughter, I worked for three years as a Special Education teacher, covering all grades from pre-kindergarten through ninth grade. I loved helping my students grow academically and personally to overcome obstacles, such as Aspergers Syndrome and other Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, emotional disorders, reading struggles, fine and gross motor delays, and speech difficulties. I strive to create fun, interactive lessons to help students learn - and enjoy the learning process! I've seen great success among my students by using tactile and visual resources as much as possible.
I am also fluent in American Sign Language and work periodically as an Interpreter for the Deaf. I am available to tutor students who wish to learn the language, as well as to tutor students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (or whose parents/caregivers are Deaf or Hard of Hearing). I am willing to use either English or American Sign Language as the primary language in which to tutor, depending on the needs of the student.
I am willing to travel farther distances than 10 miles but will need to adjust pay accordingly.
