About Dorothy

Hi there! I am a certified teacher new to the Augusta area and I'm looking to pick up some students to supplement my income. I first began tutoring on a volunteer basis as an undergrad, but began tutoring for compensation while I was getting my graduate degree in education. I am a certified teacher, with a Masters of Arts in Teaching, and hold current Georgia state teaching certificates in elementary education, special education, and middle grades math and science. I've been tutoring now for a total of about 10 years and have a lot of varied experience with grade levels (worked with pre-k all the way through undergraduate students) and subject matter (test prep, most math subjects, English/writing, k-12 science, and history/social studies are all on my list).

I was not a great math student. I was frequently frustrated, confused, and exhausted by the subject when I was learning it as a student. As a teacher, however, I've done a great deal of work to focus on how best to present math to students so that they are not lost, frustrated, and exhausted like I one was. Math is one of my most frequently requested subjects, and I have worked with a wide range of students in my classroom and individually as a tutoring client.

I'm excited to meet new students and can't wait to become a part of their learning experience!

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.

Aspergers

I hold Georgia state teacher certification in special education, and have worked with several Aspergers/Austistic students professionally in the past. The most important knowledge I have gained from those experiences is that meeting one person with Aspergers/Autism means that you have met one person with Aspergers/Autism. Each student is different and has different strategies that work for them. If there's a particularly good strategy that has worked before (graphic organizer, social story, behavior chart, or timer strategy, for example) I am happy to work with it. If the right strategy has not been found yet, I am more than willing to get creative and start thinking outside the box to help my students master their goals.
