I'm Heather, or better known as "Ms. Harper" by my students. I am an experienced Special Education Teacher from Wisconsin and recently made Houston, Texas, my home. I've spent the last six years teaching in self-contained, resource and inclusion classroom settings. My areas of expertise include English Language
Arts and Reading
however, I've taught in every core subject as well. I hold a Wisconsin and Texas teaching license, certified in Alternative Education, and hold a Master's of Science
Degree in Curriculum & Instruction as well. I understand what students with special needs
require to succeed and how to help them understand their strengths. Whether or not your child was diagnosed with ADHD
, ADD, Autism
, SLD, EBD, or OHI- I can help.
In addition to being a special education teacher, in the summers I worked for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where I was an Advertising & Marketing
and Public Relations Instructor for pre-college students grades 6-12. In this position, I taught students the essentials of marketing and public speaking
. Students spent their time creating newspapers, magazines, commercials and performances.
Aside from teaching, I am a mother of two and understand what it takes to raise a child and only want to help them reach their highest potential. As a teacher, I want to say "Thank You" for being a wonderful and caring parent just by taking the initiative to browse this site in hopes to finding a tutor that can help your child succeed. We need more parents like you!
I am flexible with my schedule and can assist your child with their current homework, or create detailed lesson plans to align with your child's current curriculum. I would love the opportunity to speak with you and your child and together we can create a road-map to success!
