About Jose

Learning is a life-long skill, yet for students with learning disabilities this becomes a tougher task. I first work on identifying how a student learns and how I can use their strongest assets to their benefit. The next task is to work on the deficiencies to close in their learning gap. One of the greatest joys in teacher is seeing the student's face when they have that aha moment that they understand the task at hand.

I obtained my master's in special education from Grand Canyon University, and my bachelor's in journalism from University of Arizona, and I am certified in special education cross category. I have taught for eight years K-8, and worked with young children for ten years. I enjoy working with children in small groups and one-on-one in their area of difficulty.

I am extremely active in my community including serving on the planning and zoning commission and the airport advisory board. In my spare time I enjoy writing poetry and short stories.

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.

Elementary Math

The last five years I have been working with special education students in an elementary school setting. I have worked with students who struggle with addition, subtraction and multiplication, and division while working on the current concepts being taught in class. Together we work on closing the deficient skills.

Grammar

In the age of electronics with texts and Facebook constructing a sentence is becoming a forgotten art. I teach students to construct complete sentences that makes use of their grammar and punctuation skills.

Special Needs

I have taught special education for eight years, specializing in the areas of specific learning disability and emotional disability. I received my master's in special education from Grand Canyon University. I possess a current Arizona Department of Education teaching certificate in Standard Cross Categorical Special Education, K-12.

Writing

Writing in all styles narrative, expository, Persuasive, and descriptive. Focus on generating ideas, organization, draft, editing, word choice, and mechanics. My writing background includes having worked as a journalist, and a previous president of the Arizona State Poetry Society.
