About Rosalia

As both a reading teacher and a literacy coach, I have been successful with helping teenagers pass the Reading FCAT, and helping younger students with spelling, writing, & reading. I work best with students on a one to one basis, because I am able to pinpoint their needs/learning style and teach them accordingly (which is why I have been able to help ADD/ADHD kids). I have extensive knowledge of the Florida standards, and a true compassion for ensuring that ALL kids learn! I have been in the field of Education for the past 20 years, and worked in a variety of environments (Public, Private, Charter) and with every "type" of special needs child (SLD, EBD, ASD, ADD/ADHD, etc.).
My vast experience in the field ensures that you will be getting the best tutor possible to help your child succeed!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a Master's Degree in Special Education & many years of experience working with ADD/ADHD children.

Dyslexia

I have a Master's Degree in Reading and Special Education, and am Florid Certified to teach ESE students (K-12) & Reading K-12 as well as Elementary. I've also had experience working with methods for helping kids with Dyslexia Linda Moody program, and am certified to give the Irlen Scotopic Sensitivity diagnostic screening (i.e. reading by the colors method). I also have numerous resources to help dyslexic kids learn strategies.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am Florida Certified to teach students (K-6), and have a little bit of experience teaching ASD kids. I have taught Elementary aged students in small groups in the area of Reading and was able to see improved scores. I also have tutored Elem. aged students with ADD, again with positive results.

Special Needs

I have a Master's Degree in Special Education, Florida State Certified to teach all disabilities (except deaf, blind) in grades K-12. I have been in the field of Education for the past 20 years, and worked in a variety of environments (Public, Private, Charter) and with every "type" of special needs child (SLD, EBD, ASD, ADD/ADHD, etc.).

Study Skills

As an Intensive Reading Teacher, I've had experience working with high school students, preparing them for the FCAT and other standardized tests; many have been successful due to the strategies I've taught in those classes (more so than due to the curriculum).
