For the past 14 years I have been a Special Education teacher in the School District of Philadelphia. I have a Certificate II in Special Education and also in Middle Years English, and am also rated Highly Qualified to teach High School English, Math Science and Social Studies. I am also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, and have extensive experience treating children with AD/HD, ODD, Aspergers and the broad range of Autistic Spectrum disorders. I am quite proficient using Direct Instruction techniques, to remediate reading and math delays. For the first six years of my teaching career I taught children from 11 to 14 years of age in a Middle School self contained Special Education Class. For the last six years, I have taught English, Mathematics Physical Science, Earth Science, Chemistry and Environmental Science in High School. For the past ten years I have worked as a Behavioral Specialist Consultant primarily treating children with AD/HD and Autism. I am a talented writer and editor and have worked as both an editor and writing coach.
Most importantly, I am a patient, empathic teacher who understands his students and knows how to motivate and inspire them to achieve their highest goals.
