About Lou Ann

I am a certified teacher, grades K-8 with endorsements in English, Social Studies and Structured English Immersion. I am also certified in Adult Basic Education. I have 11 years of experience working with students with special needs at the high school and middle school level and have a strong background in Response to Intervention (RTI), in the areas of math, English and behavior. I have tutored high school and middle school students in reading, writing, math, science and social studies for my entire teaching career. I have a Master's degree in Elementary Educations from the University of New Mexico, with additional graduate level coursework in the areas of Special Education and Teaching English as a Second Language.

As a tutor, I carefully assess each students current level of skill and ability through parent and student interviews, progress reports, informal assessment and direct observation. I then provide individualized services designed to enhance knowledge of the curriculum and the ability of the student to complete coursework independently. I am firmly grounded in the philosophy that students should be engaged in active learning. As a teacher/tutor, my role is to assist students in what they are doing, while giving them the opportunity to explore a problem or assignment, try out solutions and then build on this new knowledge.
