Every student finds learning some kind of information difficult. Those of us who love numbers and working with mathematical equations, have a hard time writing essays and term papers. Those of us who love writing, find equations impossible. I have spent the last twelve years of my life learning strategies, techniques and motivational tools to help students learn. I have taught grades 1 through 12; the last 7 years I taught high school students English. Last year I was a high school special education teacher. I am comfortable writing and understanding IEPs; I am comfortable working with students with ADHD, dyslexia, aspergers, and socio-emotional problems. Some of my favorite and most rewarding times have been working with students in a tutoring environment (one to one), helping students become better writers, better readers and better students.
I recently moved to Seattle this summer to be back on the West Coast. My family lives in California and I wanted to have a closer trip to see them. Instead of a five our plane ride from Boston, I wanted a two and half hour plane ride from Seattle. As I make my transition to the Seattle Area, I wanted to spend some time tutoring students. I am comfortable working with elementary students to high school students. My specialty is writing and reading. I have many techniques, graphic organizers, and supports to make any student into a competent writer. I can especially give students confidence in writing for standardized tests. If you feel confused and don't know how to begin your answers, essays or papers I can help you.
