About Julie

I am a special education teacher with experiences in both special education, general curriculum, and homeschooling. I have worked with students ranging from Pre-K to 12th grade. I do all I can to ensure my students develop a passion for learning and enjoy learning. i believe this can be accomplished by getting to know my students and determine their likes, dislikes, strengths, and challenges. Feedback from parents and/or guardians is also instrumental in learning more about the student. Knowing and empathizing with the student’s challenges, allows me to develop the right teaching approach to meet the needs of the student.

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.

ADHD

I have worked with students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD in both public schools and private facilities. I have nearly 10 years experience working with these students. My experiences included graduate studies, and working as a teacher, paraprofessional, and volunteer.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

My training and professional experiences with students diagnosed with autism have been through my graduate and undergraduate work. My additional experiences with these students have been through my work in private facilities along with private and public schools. I have approximately 10 years experience working with students having autism as a volunteer, behavior program specialist, teacher, and teaching assistant.

Dyslexia

My graduate work and professional experiences have included working with students diagnosed with dyslexia. I have approximately two years experience working with students as a teaching assistant and teacher. This includes one-on-one instruction, and the use of assistive technology, such as books in audio format.

Elementary (K-6th)

Although I have worked in various grade levels, the majority of my teaching experiences have been at the elementary school level, including special needs Pre-K. This has been over a 10 year span as a volunteer, teacher, and teaching assistant. My graduate work, undergraduate work, and internships all contributed to my training.

Handwriting

I am a certified teacher, and the majority of my teaching experiences have been at the elementary school level, including special needs Pre-K. This was a time when we focused on handwriting. Sometimes we began the process by tracing letters, forming letters using Playdough, or having the students make letters in sand using their fingers.

Phonics

As a teacher, phonics is a process we use to enable our students to become good readers. In my experiences with special needs Pre-K students, we had sometimes initiated the process as we introduced our students to the alphabet. Our goal was to demonstrate early on the connection between letters and sounds.

Special Needs

I have worked with a range of students with special needs, such as students with medical/physical challenges, learning disabilities, and emotional/behavioral disorders. The age ranges of these students have been from Pre-K to young adults. My graduate and undergraduate work along with my professional experiences were all part of my training. A key component to meeting the needs of these students is through differentiated instruction.

Study Skills

As a certified teacher, I have realized that the first step is to determine the area/s where the student is having challenges regarding their study habits. For example, is the student able to identify relevant details, and is the student staying focused? The next step is to resolve the problem areas, and develop skills that will motivate the student to study and enhance their learning.
