About Craig

I have experience working with children who have special needs mainly in the recreational setting. My main experience is with children who have autism. I have graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Recreational Therapy. I am very easy to get along with and patient. I have been told I am very kind and will make a child smile even when they are having a rough day. I have worked at a preschool,summer camp, and an after-school program with children who have special needs. I personally have a learning disability and have a first hand experience of struggling in school. My main goal is to help your child succeed in and outside of the classroom by making the "work" as enjoyable as possible. By doing this they will hopefully enjoy school and succeed as a student as well as a person. I look forward to hearing from any parent who is looking for a tutor for their child(with or without special needs).

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 have worked with children who have autism mainly in the recreation setting. I have worked as a personal aide at a preschool for children with autism. While working at the school I helped the children achieve their academic goals as well as help them with personal care (showering, changing, social skills etc). I have also helped children with autism at a summer camp by creating activities and helping them with personal care(showering, changing, social skills etc). I have also worked at two after-school programs for children with autism. I helped with homework and created recreational activities for them.
