About Valonda

I am a special education teacher and I usually deal with students with special needs. I have been told on many occasions I possess a lot of patience, especially dealing with those with special needs. I have dedicated myself to this for many years and I enjoy working with children with special needs; I always focus my attention on their abilities and adjust to their challenges as I always see them as a whole person.


My goal in tutoring my students is to allow them the necessary tools to tap into their abilities, by directing them to feel confident in themselves, and giving them a clear model of what is expected, through repetition, guidelines, high interest objectives and extra response time, these are some of the tools that will allow the student the opportunity to develop into their full potential.

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.

Autism

I am an early childhood special ed teacher, I have worked with students with Autism and I am aware of the behavior and challenges that children with Autism possess. I gave them extended time, modeling what is needed, and let them know what is expected, through repetition, guidelines, high interest objectives. I have several autistic students presently in my classroom. We deal with the positive behavior approach, the reward system, preferred activities and allow the child to reflect.

Special Needs

I am an early childhood special ed teacher, I work daily with students with a variety of disabilities and I am aware of the behavior and challenges that children with disabilities possess. I gave them extended time, modeling what is needed, and let them know what is expected, through repetition, guidelines, high interest objectives. I deal with district approved methods such as the positive behavior support, reward system, and reflection. I am aware of the core teaching methods for special needs.
