I have a Masters Degree in Special Education and have over 15 years of teaching/tutoring experience with students who have ADD/ADHD. I use timers and token systems to encourage my students to stay focused and then reward them when they have. For example, with one of my clients, I will set a timer for five minutes of work time and then he gets a one minute "active" break. Each time he has the chance to earn a token and then he can turn in the tokens at the end of our session, for 5 min. of free game time on my phone.

I am also very patient and kind.
I use a multi sensory approach. I focus on phonics as well as whole word teaching. I find using hands on teaching really supports my students learning and achievement.
