Hello,

My name is Kizzy and I look forward to working with you!

I just finished graduate studies at Wilmington University with a Master's of Education in School Counseling. I worked last year as a guidance counselor and currently as a Special Education Elementary School teacher. I teach grades 1st-5th. I teach and am versed in all subject areas. I work on various different learning levels and with different learning styles. Differentiated learning is my specialty.

Besides teaching, I have worked as a therapist in residential treatment facilities and as an investigator for the Department of Children and Families.

In general, I work on rapport and confidence building. I believe that all students can be successful with a specialized approach.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a special educator in Baltimore. I teach a self contained class with grades 1st - 5th. Over 60% of my students have ADHD/ADD. I am well versed in dealing with these disabilities and have developed personalized systems to address the disconnect between learning and the disability. I am CPI certified. I have implemented a Positive Behavioral Intervention System into my learning to encourage the child/children to strive for their best and work in spite of the distraction.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a Special Education teacher, teaching grades 1st-5th and all subject matters including but not limited to Language Arts (reading/writing), math, science, social studies and health. I have a unique style of teaching and realize that all learners learn differently. I specialize in differentiated learning, assessing where the child is at (instructional level), frustration level and where they need to be (grade level). I then devise a strategic teaching plan that allows the child to build confidence and become successful. I utilize several different literacy programs including Reading A-Z, First in Words, and a Phonicological Chip Kit.

Phonics

I am an educator in Baltimore. I teach a self contained class with grades 1st - 5th. Most of my students are not versed in phonemic awareness and lack the skills to transfer these skills into decoding (reading). I utilize the basic and advanced phonic chip kit from 95 Percent Group. The Phonics Chip Kit helps teachers explain phonics patterns using manipulatives and sound-spelling mapping. The kits helps teachers focus on sound-spelling pattern identification rather than word reading and directs student’s attention to identifying individual phonemes in words and analyzing sound-spelling patterns. The kits also provides strategies for identifying different sound-spelling patterns in words.

Praxis

I have completed Praxis I and Praxis II in 5015 (elementary education), 0503 (special education) and 0420 (guidance counseling) successfully. I have testing material that I bought and utilize.

Special Needs

I am a special educator in Baltimore. I teach a self contained class with grades 1st - 5th. Over 60% of my students have special needs, including but not limited to educational, physical, social and/or emotional. I am well versed in dealing with these disabilities and have developed personalized systems to address the disconnect between learning and the disability. I am CPI certified. I have implemented a Positive Behavioral Intervention System into my learning to encourage the child/children to strive for their best and work in spite of the distraction.

Study Skills

I am a special education elementary school teacher, teaching grades 1-5, all subject areas. I hold study sessions 3x a week after school in which I teach specific study habits such as highlighting, annotating (talking to text), memorization, and application techniques. I employ the help of a study program that focuses on each student's needs.
