About Tiffani

My name is Tiffani. I am currently a special education teacher at an elementary school in the East Bay. I have just returned from teaching in New Orleans charter schools for the last two years. I began teaching in December 2009 in Northern California. I taught in California until June of 2013, when I moved to New Orleans. I have a Mild/Moderate Education Specialist Credential, as well as a Master’s Degree in Special Education. I teach a Special Day Class (SDC) with students who have been diagnosed as having an Emotional Disturbance. My class is a counseling enriched class where students receive onsite individual and group counseling four times per week, with a counselor from an outside agency, provided to work only with the students in my classroom.
As teachers and as the school community, it is our job to teach students and their families how to be successful, and where to turn when they feel they are not successful. We must also let them know that it is normal when they do not succeed, and that a setback is no reason to give up on their dreams and goals.

I would like to eventually get involved in Special Education Advocacy for students and families of children with special needs who need some help and guidance in navigating the world of special education either for their child or for themselves. The services that students are entitled to, stretch far and wide, and many families become very overwhelmed trying to get the help and services they need, and I would like to be that person who can help them navigate the system and get the services and help they need.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

patient tutor

Tiffani rocks! Very patient we love her. She's not only helping my child ecxel accademically but she was able to help me navigate my parental rights and laws in reference to special education. Getting my son to read and do homework used to be a chore. I hated the person I was when trying to help him. We would sit for hours and go back and forth over the same problems and it always ended the
