I also received my Master's in VE education, Varied Exceptionalities. I have taught for 30 plus years teaching Pre-School and Second Grade in St. Louis, MO and Private school PE/Aftercare plus 22 years in the Sarasota School District. I taught at Venice Middle School as an ESE teacher for four years and moved on to Riverview High School for 18 more years. Besides me writing the curriculum for the Critical Thinking and Study Skills course for incoming Freshman at Riverview High School, I also taught it for the five years it was available.
I love children but most of all I love helping children of all ages. When adults ask me what do I teach, I would always answer, "Children." Teaching mostly about caring, listening, kindness, and being faithful and responsible. With my special needs background I was able to help incoming freshman and my ESE students understand the best way to learn and how to get organized. I also worked on learning strategies that helped the students preparing for tests and test taking, as well as note taking.
If you want to succeed in school and enjoy learning, I can help you. It's about never giving up and believing in yourself. I will be there to help you, encourage you, and push you to do the best you can do. I also received my Master's in VE education, Varied Exceptionalities.

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.

I have a masters in Varied Exceptionalities. I also have taught students with these handicaps for over 30 years, ranging from Elementary school through High school. I also have had many success stories on working with the parents, student, and counselors in the schools I taught.
I was trained by the U. Of Kansas on teaching learning strategies for special needs students in the late 90's. I also wrote curriculum and taught the course called Critical Thinking. Being organized, knowing how to study, and knowing ones strengths and weaknesses will help a student succeed. Also knowing ones learning modalities is helpful.
