About Maile

I have been a teacher and counselor of children, adolescents, and youth with disabilities and adults in diverse settings from different multicultural and socioeconomic populations for 24 years, part-time and full-time, from 1991-2015. From 06/2001-06/2007; 02/2011- Present I have been at various school districts in Colorado Springs, CO. I am a Guest Teacher. I practice Implementation of lesson plans and curriculum and administer behavior management. I have taught preschool through high school, including: special education, art, music, P.E., and technology. In the summer of 2002, at Fountain-Ft.Carson School District 8 Fountain, CO, I was a literacy Teacher. I developed literacy lesson plans and implemented literacy curriculum. I taught literacy based on Dr. Swaby's, UCCS literacy program. In the summer of 2000, I worked for Hui Malama O Ke Kai in Waimanalo, HI. I was a Drug, Alcohol and Violence Prevention Teacher. I created and administered culturally sensitive English and Math curriculum. I directed therapeutic recreation- art therapy and ocean recreation. I implemented violence prevention lessons for thirty elementary at-risk Hawaiian youth. From 11/1999-05/2000, I worked for Hawaii Department of Education, Ilima Intermediate in Ewa Beach, HI. I was a Special Education teacher for 7th and 8th grade. I developed 7th and 8th grade English and Biology curriculum. I adapted curriculum for students with moderate cognitive and affective disorders. I formulated and managed Individual Education Plans and Behavior Management Plans. In the Fall of 1999, I taught elementary students with severe Autism using Discrete Trial Training Method. Prior to 1999, I worked as a case manager for youth with disabilities, a teen recreation coordinator, a counselor, teacher of Preschool and Kindergarten and an assistant teacher for regular education and special education.
For professional development, I have been involved in workshops throughout the years. In June of 2012, I studied at Denver Options the ADA and traumatic brain injury. During that time, I also studied at Regis University which collaborated with the Love and Trauma Center. I studied the underlying effects of stress and trauma. In the Spring of 2000, I studied with Diana Day how to motivate students to be their best! I also studied the development of standards based curriculum for English, writing, science and gifted students. Finally, in the Fall of 1999, I went through a workshop that was about crisis prevention and intervention for youth at-risk.
In service to the community, I have performed the role of teacher and counselor as well. From 2004-2006, I volunteered at a community center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I worked with ages 5-18 assessing, planning, implementing and evaluating curriculum including: visual arts, therapeutic recreation, social skills development, technology, reading and writing. These students were at-risk primarily due to family violence and poverty. I worked with regular education, children with disabilities and English language learners. I tutored children in general education and special education. Finally, I have been a volunteer counselor at a abuse shelter, juvenile detention center and church youth group in Hawaii.
My education includes graduating with a Bachelor of Arts from University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO in 1998. This Bachelor of Arts degree was Interdisciplinary Studies-Intervention for Youth at Risk.

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.
