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 an Illinois License to teach elementary K-9th grade with a language arts endorsement as well as Learning Disabilities for K-12th grade. I also hold a Virginia license to teach K - 6th grade. I am working on getting my special education license for K - 12th grade.

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.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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.

Aspergers

I have a teaching license for Special Learning Disabilities in Illinois. I have worked with a variety of children from auditory learning disabilities to high functioning Autistic children. Aspergers is a higher functioning form of Autism.

I have an Illinois Elementary teaching certificate for grades K-9. I have submitted and waiting for my Virginia license. I have taught for a small private school in grades 3rd and 4th.

Phonics

Through my teaching experience in Illinois, I have thoroughly studied Abeka's phonics system and designed games to accompany any phonics instruction. I have successfully tutored many students using Abeka's phonics program. I also attended an intensive course for NILD which uses Blue book phonics. I have spoken at a homeschooling conference teaching parents how to teach phonics effectively.

Special Needs

I have a special Learning Disabilities license for grades K-12 in Illinois. I have submitted and am waiting for my Virginia license. I have taken graduate courses specializing in Learning Disabilities. I have 8 years experience teaching in an EMH self-contained classroom as well as a Learning Disabilities resource classroom.

Study Skills

I teach study skills through organizational skills, note-taking, memory techniques, and daily review.
