I have experience teaching in different capacities. I have taught 3rd and 4th grade in a small private school for 3 years, resource in a large private school for 6 years, and two years as a learning disabilities resource teacher in the public schools. I hold a License to teach elementary K-9th grade with a language arts endorsement as well as Learning Disabilities for K-12th grade. My licenses are for the state of Illinois. I recently moved to Virginia, submitted the necessary paper work, and am waiting for a Virginia license.
Every student has the potential to succeed. The trick is to figure out what method works best for your student. I have experience working with many different students from very bright ADHD students to those with Learning Disabilities. I have also worked with dyslexics and Autistic children. My specialties are in phonics, spelling, math through Algebra I, and study skills. My method consists of identifying the specific hurdles facing the student and then tailoring my teaching to overcome them.
