I am certified K-8 and currently teach full time in first grade at a local Catholic school. I recently graduated with my Masters in Special Education Teaching, K-12. I am taking my state teachers qualifications test in late April which will allow me to be licensed in the state of Ohio by this summer. I have worked with Asperger students, ADHD, LD, OCD, Tourette Syndrome, and other learning disabilities.

My goal with every tutoring student I get is the following... "I love your kids, but my goal is to get rid of them." Not many students need tutoring "forever", once they learn the skills that they have lacked, they should be able to function on their own. With that said, I will do all that I can to help your child learn in their best way and make sure that they are successful.

I will assess their needs at the beginning, focus on their weaknesses and encourage and challenge them to progress. Learning should be fun, not stressful. All play is learning and when it is needed, drill and practice will be used. I will be teaching them the skills that they need and can use on their own. But mostly, I focus on your child, his/her needs and make sure they get what they need to succeed in school, with or without me.

I look forward to meeting your child and you so that we can start on the road to success.

ADD/ADHD

Teaching first grade, I deal with ADHD a lot. I have two children of my own with ADHD and have worked with them all through their school careers. I recently graduated with a Masters in Special Education Teaching the focused on various Learning Disabilities.

Aspergers

I recently graduated with a Masters in Special Education Teaching, focusing on various Learning Disabilities. I have had 3 students in first grade that came in unidentified with Aspergers. Through documentation and classroom observations, we were able to get them the help they needed.

Autism

I recently graduated with a Masters in Special Education Teaching, focusing on various Learning Disabilities. I have had 3 students with autism in my first grade classroom. I have a sister and nephew as well. I grew up with my sister helping her. I have also worked with my nephew throughout his school career.

Dyslexia

I recently graduated with a Masters in Special Education Teaching, focusing on various Learning Disabilities. I am currently working with a Dyslexic student. I am also working on getting certification as a Dyslexic tutoring through the National Dyslexia Association using the Wilson Reading System. I begin that process this summer.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching first grade for 15 years. I have been tutoring for over 20 years in the K-6 grade range.

Phonics

I recently graduated with a Masters in Special Education Teaching, focusing on various Learning Disabilities. A child can't learn without some type of Phonics instruction. It really is the basis to reading. I teach word phonemes, syllables, digraph/blends, vowels/special vowel combinations and any other form of phonics that I may not have mentioned.

Special Needs

Recently graduated from Capella University with a Masters in Special Education Teaching. Ohio state license is in progress. I have worked with many learning disabled students in my 15 years as a first grade teacher. I adjust my teaching to their needs in order to show progress and success.
