I am an experienced childcare professional with a Master's Degree in Elementary Special Education (Grades 1-6). I have passed all the New York State Teacher Certification Exams required for my profession. I am qualified to teach in numerous subjects, including: math, reading, writing, science, and history. I also have experience in internet-based research, and I enjoy teaching students research skills.
I vary my teaching style depending on each student's needs but all my students receive regular feedback on their progress during tutoring sessions.
I hold a master's degree in Elementary Special Education from Hunter College in New York City. I hold dual state certification in teaching general education and education to students with disabilities. I qualified to teach all core subjects, including: math, science, reading, writing, geography, etc., at the elementary level.
As a certified teacher, I have spent years teaching phonics using a variety of techniques: The Wilson Reading System, Recipe for Reading, Words Their Way, and Rime to Read. I also use GLASS analysis, which involves isolating particular phonemes in words.
As part of my Master's Degree training, I studied public speaking techniques. I am well versed in breathing relaxation exercises (as a warm-up to speaking in public), articulation exercises (including phonetic emphasis and isolation), and standards of speaking (how to modify a thought into a presentable speech-sentence during a presentation). I also do exercises to improve eye contact and maintain muscle relaxation during a presentation.
Special Needs can refer to either a need for instructional adaptations to address cognitive impairments of a particular student, or, sometimes more inclusively, co-morbid cognitive and physical disabilities. I am a state certified in Elementary Special Education, trained to modify curriculum to help a student perform optimally.
I am certified in Elementary Special Education (grades 1-6). Part of my specialization includes teaching students study techniques: mappping (writing a brief summary of a paragraph after reading it), SQ3R, and acronym mnemonic techniques. I also help students organize their study materials into important categories before they begin preparing for an exam.
