I am a special education teacher that has taught grades 7-12 for Science, English and History classes for the last 2 school years. Before that I was a substitute teacher for grades 7-12 helping students with many different content areas throughout the day.
I am very good with science and can help in the other classes with writing papers, editing papers and using the proper tools to create a paper! I have worked with General Education students but also work with Special Education students that have Specific Learning Disorders, Emotional Disturbance, Other Health Impairment and some students with Autism.

I can help your student study for quizzes and tests and give them the tools to become organized! I have index cards, highlighters and many more supplies to help with study strategies. I use mnemonics and key words to help students memorize long definitions or phrases. One of my students this year had taken Biology 3 times previously and failed, with the help of me in class and coming to after school tutoring she finally passed Biology and with a C! I enjoy working with students one on one and really have a passion for seeing my students succeed in school.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping your student with their tutoring needs!

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I took Public Speaking in college and quite enjoyed it. At my previous job as a Dolphin Trainer, I would have to memorize 30-45 minute scripts and speak them on a stage infant of many people. I am also a teacher now, who has to speak during lessons without looking at a paper the entire time. I am a very good public speaker and would love to share my knowledge with others who need help with public speaking.

ADHD,

ADHD

I am a special education teacher that has been teaching students with ADD/ADHD for the past 2.5 years. My teaching certificate allows me to teach mild/moderate students and ADD/ADHD sometimes get qualified with a disability under mild/moderate, which has allowed me to work with various students that have ADD/ADHD. I believe I am successful working with students with ADD/ADHD because I have patience. I also used to be a dolphin trainer/marine mammal trainer and have learned many positive training and reinforcement techniques over the years. This training works with animals, but also with humans! I find when working with students you need to be patient, have rules that the teacher and student are responsible for, and have a unique way of reinforcing those rules, like token economy, special outing, less questions to do for homework or anything else that is reinforcing to the student. At my previous school, I was successful working with a student with ADD/ADHD that the other teachers would come to me, to ask for help and suggestions when working with him. I also would take him for his math workshop class, to work with him in a smaller setting, when another teacher could not have him be successful in her classroom. I enjoy working with students with ADD/ADHD and hope you will consider me as a tutor for your student.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am a special education teacher that has been teaching for 2.5 years in a classroom. I am certified to teach mild/moderate students. The higher functioning autistic students fall under mild/moderate which allows me to work with many students with Autism. This year, I have worked with a student who has Autism and it was such a fun experience. Each day, was a new day with him and I always needed to figure out ways to have his school day be successful. I work very hard to see my students succeed in all classroom settings. This autism student was not successful in the regular classroom setting, so I set up a fun mentorship with him in other classrooms, where he could work on skills that would help him be successful once he graduated high school. If you choose me, as a tutor, I will make sure your student will be successful in whatever setting they are in their school and make sure they have the skills to be successful at home and outside of school/home too.
