About Evan

I am a teacher with ten years of experience teaching students with disabilities in grades K-8. I love watching students learn and feel that many students who struggle with learning have not been able to feel successful. A student who feels success is more likely to become motivated and take larger academic risks which results in him or her challenging themselves more. I believe that learning should be fun and hands on and try to plan my lessons in as much of a project based approach or real life experience as I can.

I have taught elementary math for ten years. I love watching students engage and explore math concepts. I also love to teach math in as systematic process as possible, making challenging and difficult or abstract concepts more real to students.

I am certified in the Wilson Reading System. I have taught students decoding skills, comprehension skills, and fluency skills.

As a special education teacher, I have taught students in K-8.

I am certified in special education. I have a bachelors and master's degree in special education. I have written many IEP's, behavior plans, and worked with all types of students with various disabilities from LD to behavior to ASD.

If you want a fun tutor that will produce dynamic lessons that will help you feel successful, then I am the guy to contact! Let's start feeling that success today!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 10 years teaching students in elementary school. I have taught all grade levels from K-6. I have had six years teaching K-4, and four years teaching 5-6th grades.

Elementary Math

I have taught math for students in grades K-8. I believe that math should be fun, systematic, and hands on. I also believe that students learn best from an approach where "I do, We do, you do" where the student watches a model of the problem, we do a similar problem together, and then they try one on their own.

Reading

I have taught reading to students in grades K-8. I have taught students to love to read and be excited to read. It all starts with feeling successful. Students who struggle do best when they feel successful. I have taught phonics, decoding, comprehension, and much more.

Special Needs

I have a bachelors degree and masters degree in Special Education. I have been teaching special education for 10 years with Chicago Public Schools.

Study Skills

As a special education teacher, much of what I do is teach students study and organization skills. I have many "curriculum" that I have used to approach this such as S.O.A.R.
