About Colleen

I am a special education teacher certified in grades pre-k to grade 12. I taught for thirteen years. I have a bachelor's degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders and have a master's degree in Language Learning Disabilities. I am experienced in specialized reading programs, particularly Wilson Books 1-6 and LiPS. I also have a Speech/Language background which enhances my skills in the reading programs. I have seen success ranging from minimal to major in the tools that I use. I am currently using Wilson and LiPS with students I tutor and have seen success with each student.

Writing is also an area where I have seen success with students. I had training in several writing programs which I use with students I tutor. I focus primarily on adding detail to their writing. Other areas which are also addressed in my lessons are writing effective topic and concluding sentences, adding transition words, expanding vocabulary, and adding unusual words in their writing. These areas are assessed in the CMT's.
Let me prove to you that I am a "Tutor with Results."

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.

Autism

I am a certified special education teacher who was worked with students on the autism spectrum since 2008. I have seen success with each student I worked/work with. I understand that patience is key. Autistic students need to feel comfortable in their environment. I make sure these students feel this way and are able to accomplish the task at hand.

Dyslexia

I am certified in LiPS and in Wilson books 1-6, two effective phonetic awareness programs in remediating dyslexia. I am currently using Wilson with four students. I am seeing progress in all of the students.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a Special Education teacher for thirteen years. Some of my years teaching occurred in elementary school. I assisted students with Reading, Writing, and Math. I am certified in Wilson and LiPS, two Reading programs that help struggled readers. I am also trained in Touch Math, a program that teaches this subject in a fun, easier way. Lastly, I had training in various writing programs that focus on topic and concluding sentences, detail, transition sentences, and vocabulary, all needed for a successful paper.
The tools I learned while teaching enhance my tutoring.

Phonics

I am certified in Wilson books 1-6 and am also certified in LiPS. I have a Speech/Language background which enhances my teaching of phonics skills. Lastly, I am a certified Special Education teacher for the state of Connecticut.

I have taught phonics for 13 years and am quite knowledgeable in this subject area. I have seen progress with every student I have taught.

Reading

I have tutored since 1996. Students I have taught range from preschool to adult. All of the students I have worked with achieved success.

Special Needs

I am a special education teacher with a master's degree in Language Learning Disabilities. I have taught for 13 years and have worked with all age groups. I have experience in specialized reading programs and math programs.

Speech

I was a Speech Language Specialist for three years. During this time, I acquired many tools that have been useful in working with students who have speech/language issues. I was also trained in LiPS, a tool that can be used with students who have speech/language issues and/or reading issues. Lastly, my master's degree is in Language Learning Disabilities.
