##### About Renee

I was retired for 4 years from the San Diego Unified School District. I had taught 32 years in Special Education classes, the last 14 in a middle school program for students with Asperger's Diagnoses. Last Sept. I was asked to start a class of elementary students with special needs as they had no teacher assigned to the position. Since I was still there after 5 weeks of subbing, I came out of retirement and signed a contract to complete the year. I am now retired again and wish to tutor in order to continue helping students learn.

I loved my career in teaching, and know I will miss my students as well as the staff I worked with. I have always had excellent reviews, and received the PTA Teacher of the year award at one of my schools. I am very patient, creative, and flexible. The needs of my students have always been a priority for me, and involving parents in their children's learning a necessity. There is no greater sense of accomplishment for me than seeing a student's light go on, and saying "I got it!"

I have experience teaching Core Curriculum as well as Direct Instruction techniques.

I know the rules of spelling, and am a good speller.

I have taught reading, written language, spelling, history, science, and math through the 8th grade. I really enjoy working with older students, and in addition to helping them, I learn a lot from them.
