I have a Bachelors degree from the University of Northern Colorado in special education. I also passed the Texas 161 Certification for SPED and am currently pursuing Texas 4-8 certification. These are all part of my pursuit in trying to become a teacher. I have tutored children in the following areas: reading, math, writing, and some English as a second language. I have written behavior assessments and and implemented behavior plans for children. I have even helped with individualized education plans which are legal documents within the school districts. Each child I have helped succeed in their desired field; sometimes all that is needed is a different approach to the problem, whether it be math, reading, or writing. I have only have experience tutoring with children from K-5, yet I am willing to tutor anyone.
The children I have tutored have ranged from Aspergers to your average IQ. I enjoy thinking up different ways to help them learn the material they struggle with. I know how to work with all different types of learning traits: kinesthetic, visual, and audio. Most of the tutoring I have done has either been for a class at my university or it was pro bono. I enjoy giving back to the community and believe that it is important for society to do so. I currently volunteer at a school two days a week helping children with their reading and comprehension through what is called Read Naturally.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
ADD/ADHD is a trait where a child has a hard time focusing and understanding what is being asked of them. I have found that the Kinesthetic approach works really well in helping them understand the basics of what is being asked of them. For example take learning multiplication time tables, the best practice for this would be with manipulatives. Showing them that there are 3 sets of 4. For reading spelling out the words they struggle with, with scrabble letters so this way they are able to see how the word is formed and how it can go into a sentence. ADD/ADHD takes a bit of extra explaining the subject in a way that they can relate to it. Yet generally it works best if you use a hands on approach
Dyslexia is a reading struggle for children they struggle with getting the word backwards, writing the letters backwards, or the can even switch the words around in a sentence. To help with this practice and repetition works out really well. Another method that I have found that works well is reading aloud and each of the words they get wrong take them later and spell them out together with tactile letters. Also setting up analogies that they understand like the difference between the letter b and p is the stem is ground and p starts with pig and pigs roll around in the ground. The letter "b" sounds like a bee and that flies around so the stem is up in the air.
I have taught at an area middle school. I have taught them in reading for the main idea who are the characters and how to help them understand what the character is trying to infer. I taught them how to write paragraphs and how to understand how to get your point across in writing I even have taught them how to do a simple five paragraph essay. I have done this all in a ELA resource room which goes over the 6th grade, 7th grade and 8th grade teaching children with learning disabilities in reading and writing, and improving their scores on the STAAR Modified test.
I have taught at Fwisd at JP Elder middle school in a ELA resource room which goes over the 6th grade, 7th grade and 8th grade teaching children with learning disabilities in reading and writing, and improving their scores on the STAAR Modified test.
As a teacher a ELA resource room, we went over study skills for test prep and study skills for the STARR test using guided lessons and many workshops to help understand different ways to study for the STARR test.
