For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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

As a speech language therapist I have worked in private practices with students who have ADD/ADHD. I have worked with children as well as adults. I always also work on organizational skills when I have a student with ADD/ADHD.

Aspergers

I am an experienced Speech Pathologist who has worked with children and adults with Aspergers. My focus has been on organization skills, reading, writing and improving overall communication skills. I have a very positive reinforcement approach that approaches tasks in small increments with repetition to aid the student and retain the information.

Autism

As a speech pathologist I have worked in many settings with autistic children and young adults over the last twenty years. I worked with autistic children at Eastern State School and Hospital in Langhorne, Pa and we innovated new programming that included psychologists, movement and music therapists and speech pathologists.

I have also worked with autistic children when I did therapy for a private practice and in school settings.

I believe in a multi-modality approach with autistic children and involving family members as much as possible.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my Master's Degree in Speech Pathology ad have worked with children with learning disabilities(autism, ADD/ADHD, Aspergers, reading disabilities, articulation and ESL). I have taught reading to elementary school kids when I worked for Educational Connections and NOVA Star Prep as a tutor. I have also taught ESL reading to children. I have done poetry workshops with children and adults through Fairfax County. I have tutored kids with reading, writing and speaking difficulties. I have also helped elementary students with homework in all subjects including history, as well. I have tutored students this age for roughly 4 years.

Hard Of Hearing

My Bachelor's degree is in Deaf Education which includes working with hearing impaired students. I have worked at the House Ear Institute with the clinical trials of the Cochlear Implant. I have worked with hearing impaired students inside the classroom and in home tutoring. I have taught reading, writing, articulation and organizational skills to my hearing impaired students. I have a positive approach working in small increments that helps my students retain information and feel positive about what we skills we are working on. I also know some basic sign language skills.

Sign Language

My Bachelor's degree in Deaf Education. I studied sign language in college and took a course as well at Gallaudet University.

Last year I took a refresher course at NVCC- Annandale. I still consider myself an intermediate signer but have taught sign language lessons locally and can certainly teach a beginner.

Speech

My Masters Degree is in Speech Pathology. I have worked at Northern Virginia Community College teaching Speaking and Listening including Pronunciation. I have also worked with visiting Korean students on reading, writing and speaking skills.

Study Skills

I have tutored students with ADD/ADHD on organizational and study skills. My background is in Speech Pathology and organizational skills are always part of my tutoring sessions.
