About Kathleen

I have been teaching for the last 10 years. I am focused on working with children with special needs although I have also tutored several general education students in Math, Science and English/ Language Arts. I prefer to work with students using whatever materials are necessary for them to understand the concepts and be successful both with me and their regular classroom teacher. I am available after school and in the evenings . I feel that it is important to keep up their skills through the summer so I am available in the summer as well. I have worked with all grades from Kindergarten to High school. I also am skilled in sign language and have found that to be helpful in working with many students.

Study Skills

I have been working with students on study skills and organization for the last 8 years as a special education teacher. I have taken courses on organization and it's relationship to learning. Study skills are a basis for all special education courses as there are many methods of studying and not all work for everyone. I utilize planners, post-its, and notecards regularly to assist in studying.
