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 in an autism (total communication), special programs classroom at Conrad High School in Dallas ISD. Previously, I often helped higher functioning autistic students at Highland Park High School.
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.
