About Heather

I know that every child can learn and be successful in life. My positive approach in teaching is a foundation to learning. As a special education teacher I am very familiar with all of the different ways each child learns. Information processing differs dramatically differs within a general education classroom. When I have a child who doesn't understand a concept, it means I have to explain the concept a different way.

I am fully trained in the Lindamood-Bell Seeing Stars (reading) and On Cloud Nine (math) programs. These programs are very specific to create connection of symbols (letters and numbers) to successfully be able to read, comprehend, math. I have various methods to teach word problems. The new state testing for math is all word problems.

I love teaching! I left a long business career to follow my passion. I love all of my kids, believe in all of them, believe in them and support them.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADHD

I am a highly qualified special education teacher with cross categorical endorsement. I have a Masters degree in Special education. As a special education teacher the majority of my students have ADHD/ADD. I am very skilled in teaching students with this diagnosis.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am a Special Education teacher. I have a masters degree in special education cross categorical (knowledge in all areas of disabilities). I have had multiple students as a teacher who had autism. Children who have autism learn differently and that knowledge and expertise is essential.

Business

I have a BSBA and MBA. I helped start and run an Inc. 500 company as the Vice President. I was one of the Top 50 Small Business Women 2011 in AZ Magazine. I have worked with small businesses in Arizona for over 17 years in the areas of payroll, insurance, HR, taxes, marketing, sales and general business information.

Common Core

As a public school teacher, all of my lessons have to be aligned with the Common Core standards. Each of my lesson plans are directly tied to the subject/area/strand. All of my lesson plans that have been audited by school administration have been 100% in compliance with the regulations of Common Core.

Elementary Math

Special Education support for math and English

Marketing

I have a BSBA and MBA. I created and ran an Inc. 500 company. I was named one of the top 50 small business women in Arizona in 2011. I was the keynote speaker for the City of Phoenix's Your Own Business.

I have over 17 years of working with companies in all industries developing and managing marketing plans/campaigns. Additionally, I am a faculty member at a college teaching business classes including Marketing.

Special Needs

I hold an AZ Teacher Certificate as highly qualified in the area of Special Education Cross Categorical (K-12). I have a Masters Degree in Special Education Cross Categorical. Additionally, I am current teacher for Peoria Unified School District at Zuni Hills teaching Special Education Resource 6-8th.

Study Skills

I have a masters degree in Special Education Cross Categorical. Within the classes that I took, we focused on specific strategies for study skills. My certification in Special Education certifies me to teach Life Skills (courses in high school) that focus on organization, learning how to organize for projects and tests and overall skills. In addition, I have developed a program that I test students for their organizational (not learning) style and develop an organizational system that works for them.
