I am a retired teacher with twenty-seven years of teaching experience. I have taught elementary, middle school and high school students. My last four years of employment have been as a para-educator in a special education classroom working with cognitively delayed and autistic students. My Master's degree is in Special Education, which I taught for the last fifteen years of my career. I have extensive experience with special needs students, including ADD/ADHD, autism and delayed cognitive skills. I am also able to address IEP objectives.

Having difficulty keeping up in class can be extremely frustrating. I can assist with preparing for tests and completing assignments. Additionally, I can help fill in learning gaps, improving understanding.

Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with very diverse groups of students and am able to create a rapport with all kinds of people. I enjoy working with students of all ages. I am especially looking forward to a tutoring situation which will help you to move forward and have a more positive educational experience.
