About Rodger

My name is Rodger, and I have 20 years in Pr-K through 12 education as a teacher, resource specialist, alternative residential school developer, athletic coach, and Principal. I have tutoring experience as well as offering my services as substitute availability with school districts. I have a background in classroom management development for both teachers and districts that include behavior management plans school wide.

I love the one-to-one development of a student's potential to help them achieve their potential. I have high reasonable expectations and expect the student to work hard to apply learned skills. I understand that each child learns uniquely through all learning modalities. I believe that if a child wants to apply a learning method that fits their ability they will grow accordingly.

My background as a Teacher, Resource Specialist and Reading Tutor/Teacher gives me the confidence to understand the varied issues that come with learning to read.

I have worked with a program that works well within a homeschooling setting.

My certifications are in the area of Learning Disability and Behavioral issues, and Educational Supervision and Administration. My experience as a Principal was to start and develop a Therapeutic Day School working with up to eighteen school districts in five counties. The school had a center for Autism Spectrum and Multiple Needs and a center for Social Emotional issues for students from Pr-K to age 21. There was a clinical staff in addition to fully support and develop each student for their full potential.

In addition I have started and developed a residential classroom program for students age 5- 12 who were wards of the state. My job was to setup and run the classroom learning environment.

I would love to meet personally to see if what I can offer, given my background and solid interest in helping students learning growth, can aide the need and therefore success for tutoring you as a person. I believe my varied background of working with students from all backgrounds socially and learning level challenges give me the ability to meet the specific need. Please contact me and lets see how we can prepare you for the future.
