About Jamie

Special Education Teacher with a lot of patience!

I have experience working with students from first grade to college level in almost every subject. I currently work at a high school in Long Beach. I have excellent listening skills. I work as an RSP teacher for 9th and 10th grade students with mild to moderate disabilities. On a daily basis we work on Algebra, English, History, Science, art projects, reports, essays, test-taking and writing strategies, daily planners, School Loop, how to ask for help or how to talk to your teachers etc. The list is endless. My students need a teacher who is patient and understanding.

My educational background includes a M.S. Degree in Special Education, Multiple Subject Credential to teach K-8th, Special Education Credential and a B.S. in Journalism Studies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a Special Education Teacher and I work with students on a daily basis who are diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. I communicate with general education teacher and parents of these students to help design a curriculum that will best fit their needs.

Dyslexia

I am a Special Education Teacher.

I work with students at my current job who are diagnosed with dyslexia. Some of my students have auditory or visual learning disabilities. Regardless, these students to help with reading comprehension and reading skills. I have experience helping students overcome their reading difficulties. I encourage all students to read. I want students to enjoy reading.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 3 years of Elementary School Teaching Experience as a College aide, substitute teacher, ELL teacher for 2nd graders, and student teaching with Grades K-6.

Teaching elementary children involves a special level or energy, patience and listening skills. I love creating projects involving spelling words, history information, Venn Diagrams, pictures, art work, important world/moral/manner concepts, math concepts and science.

Teaching high school has made me realize what is missing at the elementary school level in terms of the students understanding why math and other subjects are so important to their world. We as teachers can incorporate any subjects together to create a fun lesson where students are enjoying the learning experience.

Phonics

In regards to teaching phonics. I passed the RICA, a reading test for teachers and I teach phonics on a daily basis in my special education classes. My students need to understand the connections between sounds and written vocabulary.

Special Needs

I am a Special Education Teacher with an M.S. in Special Education, as well as a Credential in Special Education.

I have the experience of 1 year as teacher SDC (special day classes), 5 years teaching RSP students.
The disabilities of students range from Autism, ADHD, specific learning disabilities, other health impairments.

I have a lot of experience working with students with special needs that dates back to my days growing up. My little sister was diagnosed with a speech impairment while my little brother was diagnosed with ADHD. While my experiences and my mentors have shaped and encouraged me throughout the years, I do realize that no case is exactly the same.

Study Skills

I am a Resource Specialist Teacher (RSP) and Reading Specialist.

I currently teach a class for 9th and 10th graders called Strategies for Success and tutor students at a learning center. Part of my RSP curriculum includes teaching organization, study skills, test-taking strategies, and communication skills for my students to use in their general education classes.
