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.

ADHD

I have worked with children with add/ahd for a number of years. I am currently working within the school setting with a child that has ahd, therefore I understand the process of dealing with them. I understand and have successfully used various methods of re-focusing and calming strategies to assist them in being successful. I have utilized Accommodations to help make learning easier. I believe in intervention to head off behaviors that disrupt concentration.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have worked with children with autism for years. I understand their difficulty in learning within the normal classroom setting. I believe theses few things help to assist autistic children to become successful within learning , keep to a routine, use preparatory commands and limit transitions.
It is important to limit the amount of information given at one time, give sensory breaks, use refocusing techniques and most importantly have patience.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently working in the Westport School district. I work in grades 2 and 4. I have also worked in k and 1st. I am very familiar with the curriculum that is being used within all grades.
I have experience working with children from preschool through 5th grade.

Phonics

I have worked alone side with the classroom teachers to teach phonics. I believe this is essential in the learning process for our younger students to understand why words are spelt the way they are.
I believe programs like Fundations is a fun way of learning this.

Special Needs

I have worked with special needs children for the last 10 years. I have worked with children from pre school age through 5th grade. My experience is in multiple areas ranging from autism, anxiety, to behavioral. I have worked along side the classroom teachers assisting these students within all academic areas. I have also worked along side resource teachers.
