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.
I have worked with special ed students for many years as a substitute teacher and home tutor. Many of these students are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. My wife has ADD and works in the public schools, so I am particularly aware of the issues surrounding ADD and education. I use techniques of allowing for movement and breaks, as needed, when working with ADD/ADHD students.
I have worked with special ed students for many years as a substitute teacher and home tutor. Many of these students are diagnosed with Aspergers. I am familiar with many of the "quirks" of Asperger's students and am fully capable of using their talents to the best of their capabilities. These students are often bright and articulate and a pleasure to work with.
I have a Multiple Subjects-Life Teaching Credential.
I have worked in the LAUSD at the elementary school level. I have been trained in Open Court Reading, which is a language program that incorporates phonics skills. Additionally, I have used the "Hooked on Phonics" program with my son along with several other of his peers. Phonics skills are an essential part of reading and writing developments. I am well versed and well qualified to incorporate a good phonics base to a reading and writing language arts program.
As a substitute teaacher for LAUSD, I have spent countless days subbing in special ed classrooms of all types. I am extremely familiar with IEP's and the IEP process. Additionally, my wife works as an SLP in the school system with many special needs students; I have learned much through her background and knowledge.
There are many things I do to help a student develop good study skills. Examples include: having a consistent time and place to study, planning what needs to be accomplished, breaking tasks down into smaller tasks, keeping a records of tasks needing to be accomplished to view accomplishments, having supplies handy, allowing for breaks, getting enough sleep, and encouraging exercise are just a few examples of how to develop good study skills.
