About Theresa

I am a special education teacher. I will be graduating May 2016 from Lewis University in Romeoville, IL. This fall I have accepted a position as an elementary special education teacher in Tinley Park, IL. I have always loved teaching and working with children. My passion and dedication to the education of young minds has always been, and always will be, most important to me.

I have extensive experience working with students who have a broad range of needs. I am happy and qualified to tutor students who need support with grade level work, students who have significant academic and behavioral needs, and everyone in between.

Through my experiences, I have been exposed to a variety of math curriculums including Digits and Everyday Math. I also am able to implement a variety of intervention strategies to address math computation skills.

I have thorough experience with teaching grammar and reading with an array of curriculums including Reading Mastery and Story Town. I enjoy incorporating students interests into activities that target specific skills. I also always consider student interest when selecting reading passages and texts.

The majority of my experiences have been with students grades K-8. I am a kind and warm figure who also has high expectations for her students. I believe in using positive behavior supports as opposed to negative consequences to encourage effort and desirable behaviors. I believe this approach is highly effective with young learners.

Please contact me to schedule a tutoring session. I look forward to meeting you and helping you grow. :)
