About Anita

Currently, I am working as an Interrelated Special Education Teacher in a local school system. I was named the district-wide Teacher of the Year in the school system where I am currently employed. I have 13 years of experience working with various types of students in all areas of disability. I received a bachelor’s degree in Mental Handicaps from Albany State University in 2007 and worked as a paraprofessional in a self-contained classroom for one school term. In the Fall of 2008, I received a scholarship from the University of Minnesota where I received an M.Ed in Work, Community, and Family Education with an emphasis in special populations. During my tenure as a graduate/teaching assistant, I worked at the Frasier Child and Family Center with students with Communication and Interaction Disorders (currently Autism Spectrum Disorders and Pervasive Developmental Disorders).

In addition, I worked as an educational consultant for Anderson and Ward Educational Consulting firm and worked in Georgia and Alabama school systems as an inclusion specialist and assisted local school systems with integrating students with moderate impairments and children with Autism in the general education setting. In 2009, I attended Lincoln Memorial University and received an Ed. S in Administration and Policy. I use researched based strategies and technology during my tutoring sessions that have been proven to work with students who have disabilities or students with learning difficulties.

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.

Handwriting

I teach handwriting daily using a program called Handwriting Without Tears. I teach all grade levels k-3. I've used this program for several years and it's very effective for all students. I am working as an Interrelated Special Education Teacher in a local school system.

Phonics

I am a Certified Special Education Teacher. I am certified to teach reading grades K-8 on my current Georgia Certification.

Reading

I use research-based strategies in order to remediate reading difficulties. These programs have a combined total of 40 years of proven success for students with phonemic awareness, decoding, and basic sight word readiness.

Special Needs

I am a certified Special Education Teacher in the State of Georgia. I have 12 years of experience in public schools in the state of Georgia. My certificate is active at this time and I work at a public school. Please view my profile. I am certified to work with students who have SLD, MIID, and EBD. I also work with kids who have ADHD and Autism.
