About Jane

I absolutely love working with students. I believe each student is unique. Every child learns in a different way, and I try my hardest to have them succeed in their own learning way. I plan to work with each student as an individual. Each and every student is unique in their learning styles. It is about adapting work to meet their style, to explain things in ways that will make sense. Children are our future and we need to prepare them :)

I'm currently a certified special education (K-12), certified regular elementary education(K-6) and certified deaf/hard of hearing preK-12 in CT. I also hold MD and NY certifications in elementary education and special education. I have been a teacher in MD and currently in CT. I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary/Special Education at St. Bonaventure University. There I also worked on my minor in History. I earned my Masters degree in Deaf Education from Gallaudet University (Washington, DC). I am fluent in American Sign Language.

I'm currently in my 8th year of teaching.

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.

Dyslexia

I am a certified special education teacher in NY, CT and MD. I teach reading daily to students who are dyslexic in the classroom and within a resource room. I have training in different multi-sensory reading programs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in NY, MD and CT in elementary Education. My undergraduate work was completed at St. Bonaventure University in NY. I have worked in elementary schools for 7 years and am knowledgeable about the curriculum for grades k-6. I am able to adapt work and am able to work with students.

Elementary Math

I'm a certified special education and elementary teacher. I teach math everyday to my students. I know the current curriculum and ways modify it meet meet students needs.

Hard Of Hearing

I am a Connecticut State certified teacher for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. I am currently a Teacher of the Hearing Impaired. I completed my MA from Gallaudet University in 2008. I am fluent in American Sign Langauge and am experienced in oral methods. I am seeking my LSLS certification as well.

Phonics

I have been working with younger students learning phonemic awareness. This can be a difficult task for some students.

Sign Language

I am a Gallaudet University Graduate. I received my Masters from there in 2008. I am fluent in ASL and have received a 3 on the ASL-PI (American Sign Language Proficiency Interview). I am able to communicate and interpret as necessary. I teach sign language to adults. I am also a Teacher of the deaf. I began signing at age 3 and have a passion for it.

Special Needs

I'm a certified special education teacher in NY,CT and MD. I have worked with students preK-12 in all areas. From hearing impaired to low-functioning autistic and everything in between. I have many tricks up my sleeves to teach different subjects to different kids, who learn differently. All students can learn in different ways at their own ability levels. I have some experience in teaching students to read through many different interventions.

Study Skills

I have been a special education teacher for 7 years. I work with students on organization and study skills on a daily basis. There are many different ways to help students who struggle in this area. You have to look at the student as an individual before making a decision on which technique would best suit him or her.
