About Helen


Bio

I have a master's in Special Ed, specializing in working with students with learning challenges, emotional or behavioral disorders (adhd, depression, anxiety etc.). I believe everyone can learn and be motivated toward becoming life long learners. I individualize my material to fit the needs of each student. I have 14 years of experience with IEP and Advocacy for students in both the public, private and therapeutic teaching environments.

I have a master's in Special Ed, specializing in working with students with learning challenges, emotional or behavioral disorders (adhd, depression, anxiety etc.). I believe everyone can learn and be motivated toward becoming life long learners. I individualize my material to fit the needs of each student. I have 14 years of experience with IEP and Advocacy for students in both the public, private and therapeutic teaching environments.

I most enjoy working with teens and young adults. I have tutored throughout my career but also worked in business settings so my style is with an eye towards real world application of knowledge and life skills. I am considered highly qualified in 7 areas by the state of IL and am certified for grades K-12 and ages 5-25.
I look forward to working with your student to help them gain skills, confidence, and an experience of success.

I can tutor basic skills, consumer math and algebra, and geometry.

I tutor reading for understanding, outlining and study skills.

I also have great strength in reading comprehension strategies and writing skills. I tutor organization of ideas, time management, and materials. Why struggle and battle without the right tools? Let's problem solve together.
