About Cathy

I have worked in Arizona since 2006 in the public school as a special education paraprofessional. The district where I worked is very good about training paras in tutoring students with special needs. My forte is working with high functioning children with autism or Asperger's Syndrome. I have documented success in this area as well as references and recommendations from former instructors.
My specialty areas are: Language Arts, Spelling, Vocabulary, Grammar, Writing, Reading (fluency and comprehension), music and history. I have also had success with teaching study skills and coping skills. I have a very calm, relaxed demeanor. I am very patient and consistent with my expectations. I'm prompt and dependable. My former students are some of the most respectful, considerate young men and women. They've learned to be patient with themselves in their work and to be patient with others as they expect others to be patient with them.

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.

Aspergers

I am an adult with Aspergers. Since 2007, I've worked in the public schools with special needs students. I've worked in the general ed classrooms with four students with Aspergers Syndrome ranging from grades K-6. I've had remarkable success working with a child with Aspergers in second grade.
