ADD/ADHD

I can provide tutoring for ADD, ADHD, or special needs children. My brother's son has Autism and all of my children have ADD or ADHD. I have received training on communicating and teaching children with ADD, ADHD and special needs from the Division of Youth and Family Services. I have experience tutoring and training children with ADD/ADHD, and other special needs children. I have the awareness, training, patience, understanding, sensitivity, and caring necessary to motivate, support, tutor and communicate with special needs children. Not to make light of ADD, ADHD or other special needs, however any and all students that need tutoring have unique and special needs for their tutoring requests, and my approach is to listen and customize my approach based on their feedback and feedback from their parents if provided. Also, because I tutor for Spanish, I understand the needs for effective communication and tutoring children with special needs is similar to speaking a different language. My brother is a Pediatrician and has taught me a great deal regarding the needs of children with ADD, ADHD and autism. Through personal experience and training, I have learned to tutor children with ADD, ADHD.

Interpersonal Skills: I am detail-oriented, creative, energetic, inspiring, organized, observant, sensitive, communicative, teachable, flexible, knowledgeable, diligent, experienced, and confident.

Passion for Teaching and Education: I come from a long family line of educators, teachers, school principals, school superintendents. Teaching, coaching, learning, and improving are my passion and family values. I have a strong passion and desire to help students learn, solve problems and achieve success in their education and in their life goals. I thoroughly enjoy helping my students learn their material, solve problems, and improve their knowledge and skills. I also help my students improve their study skills, problem solving skills, and test taking skills. On a professional basis, I constantly assess systems for training effectiveness, and constantly study to obtain and maintain professional certifications, complete training course and certification exams, and to complete training courses required for my profession. Therefore, I am in the positions of a trainer, tutor and a student on an annual basis. I help students recognize, analyze, and solve any barriers to learning or academic success. My goal is to help my students achieve success, confidence, and satisfaction, and to apply this success to achieve any goal in school or life. Finally, I also help my students set and achieve SMART Goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Based.

What is the age of your child and what are the subjects that you would like support on? You can respond to let me know the support you want, or if there are any questions that you have. Have a great day and I hope to hear from you.

God bless you and your family.
Best regards,
John

As a manager, supervisor, and executive for over 25 years, I have been responsible for writing reports, Good and Best Practices for checking documents, and annual Goals and Objectives.

Study Skills

As a Chemical Engineer and Quality Assurance, Environmental, Health, Safety, and Operations Professional, I have mastered the art and science of study skills, problem solving techniques, Project Management, Follow-up, Tracking and Closure (FUTAC), Corrective and Preventive Action, and Operational Excellence.

I have specific training in Project Management and Study Skills.

I have used this knowledge to create customized approaches and plans to meet my student’s needs, with students ranging from elementary school students to PhD candidates.

Track & Field

I achieved school, county, and state records for Track and Field.

My 40-yard dash time was 4.4 seconds, and my 100 meter dash time was 10.8 seconds. I was the fastest sprinter in high school and set school, county, and state records for Track and Field.

I participated in two automatic events at every track meet, and my high school coach would select two other events from the list below for me to participate in, to maximize the points for the team:
1. 100 Meter Dash (automatic event for each track meet)
2. Anchor for the 4x100 Meter Relay Team (automatic)
3. 100 Meter Hurdles
4. 300 Meter Hurdles
5. Long Jump
6. Triple Jump

11. High Jump

I was awarded Scholar Athlete for High School. I coached Track and Field at the elementary, middle school and high school levels. As a Track and Field Coach, I served on various teams as an Assistant Coach, Position Coach, and Team Administrator.

I was also the trainer for all relay teams. I taught all of the relay teams how to hold and pass the baton during relay races. I specialized in the Under Hand Baton Exchange Method. I also taught and emphasized effective baton exchanges in the exchange zone, how to initiate the baton exchange, and how to ensure both runners were at top speed during the baton exchange in the exchange zone.
