Hi my name is Tina and I would like my students to learn effective Spanish from a native-fluent Spanish-speaking tutor who focus on integrally developing speaking, listening, reading and/or writing communication skills. Not only I have used my first language while growing up in Puerto Rico, but moving to the United States also gave me a big opportunity to help others in need. Becoming an occupational therapist gave me the flexibility to work with different cultures and to utilize my native language to translate to their understanding.

As a tutor I will support my students needs in the implementation of their goals to address each student highest achievement. It's very important to establish and maintain standards to ensure a functional learning atmosphere in the Tutoring Program.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I was able to assess the unique educational needs and strengths of a child with ADHD. Working with a multidisciplinary team and the child's parents, consider both academic and behavioral needs, using formal diagnostic assessments and informal home and classroom observations. Assessments, such as learning style inventories, was used to determine children's strengths and enable instruction to build on their existing abilities.

Aspergers

I was able to educate children with Asperger's syndrome by being able to recognize their gifts as well as limitations. Some strategies used with the children at the classroom settings were visual schedules, role-playing or preparing the student by discussing upcoming activities. Appropriate strategies are dependent on the age of the student and his/her abilities.

Autism

I've worked with children with Autism using the Applied behavior analysis (ABA) and Pyramid Educational Consultants (PECS) in the home environment and school system. When working with children with Autism Task Analysis –very specific, tasks in sequential order were used. Always kept language simple and concrete and got the point across using few words as possible or by using basic sign language.


Special Needs

Special education was taught by using various techniques to promote learning. Depending on the disability, teaching methods can include individualized instruction, problem solving, and small group work. Work with IEP/IFSP by setting personalized goals for each student and tailored to the student's individual needs and ability. Worked closely with staff and parents to inform the child's progress and suggest techniques to promote continuing learning.
