For 5+ years I have worked as a private tutor with both general education and AP students in Highland Park and other districts. More recently, I have tutored both an international law student at SMU on essay writing and a graduate student at the University of Texas, Dallas.
I am highly proficient in English grammar, literature, and writing. I also have an avid interest in American history, government, and political science, having taken many courses in these disciplines in college.
I feel called to serve students with special needs and learning differences--especially students diagnosed on the autism spectrum--both lower and higher functioning. I am patient, caring, dependable, respectful, and consistent. I empower students to achieve their IEP and personal goals to be successful and more independent.
My 8+ years experience as an assistant in special education, as a substitute teacher, and as a private tutor included working with ADD/ADHD students. I helped them with daily assignments, homework, studying for tests, and helping to administer tests in the academic support center at the high school level.
While I have a BA in English, I have had a life-long interest in American history, having won that award when I graduated from high school.
My elective college courses included American history, history of the South,the presidency, southern political ideas (Jefferson, Calhoun, et al), civil liberties, and constitutional law.
I was invited and became a member of the national history honor fraternity.
Since December, 2011, I have worked full time with autistic students in special education programs at both Conrad High School, (Dallas ISD) and Williams Preparatory, an Uplift Education charter school. Previously, I often helped higher functioning autistic students in Highland Park ISD.
I have a BA degree in English from the University of TN, and I have tutored students privately in Highland Park for several years, having been recommended by an English AP teacher at Highland Park High School. I also tutor students with special needs, including autism. I am very proficient in grammar and American literature.
I have a BA in English, and I have 5+ years experience as a private tutor. As I have helped students with their assignments and during the writing process, I have introduced ways to organize their resources into actual folders or notebooks to stay organized throughout a term or course. I have also modified their organizational needs or created ways to enhance their study skills to accommodate special needs or learning differences.
I have a BA in English from the University of TN at Chattanooga. During college, I wrote many formal papers for classes within my major, including a course in advanced writing. While on staff as a teaching assistant at Highland Park High School, 2008-2009, I was recommended by English teachers, and I helped several students with junior and senior writing assignments. I have continued to tutor students, both in and out of Highland Park,even though I am now a full time teaching assistant in special education in Dallas ISD. It would be a pleasure to help new students.

Mindful, patient, and a quick study himself! — I'm a unique case: a high-functioning Asperger's student trying to overcome anxiety issues, I needed organizational and motivational help on a research paper rather than specific expertise in the subject area. As an English major, Charles S. knew quite little regarding Intelligent Systems or fuzzy logic based computational algorithms. However, this was no obstacle! He was able to understand and ...
