About Joyce

I have eight years of experience working with special needs students in Michigan and Indiana public schools. I have a special education Master's degree obtained from the University of Phoenix online in 2007. I have worked with special need students in grades k-12 with mild to severe disabilities.

My student teaching was in two classrooms that were Resource and self-contained. I have done after school tutoring in reading and math for 2 years at Brain Hurricane and Sylvan Learning center. I like for students to enjoy their learning experience and enjoy the journey of exploring it.

I worked in a school for special education students in Michigan for five of my eight years of experience. They ranged from ages 4-26 some severely disabled and needed more one-on-one assistance than others. As a tutor of special education students I strive to understand the specific needs of their abilities and disabilities. In tutoring special education students I would like to get acquainted with their Individual Education plan so that I might focus on effective lessons.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked this 2014-2015 school year with special needs students with several disabilities. Starting with pre-k to 12th grade. Some have had attention deficit disorder and I have used patience and redirection as I keep the attention of the students to stay on task. My degree is in special education which gives me some insight academically for needs of special education students. Ten years of experience working with severe-to-mild special needs students has provided me the opportunity to understand their needs and abilities.

Autism

I have worked with severe and mild special education autistic students for 2 years. I worked in a special needs school for five years with students who had severe disabilities from ages 2-26. The students with severe autism learn by visuals that have limited vocabulary and comprehension. My master's in special education degree has academically prepares me for guiding and leading special needs students to success and personal growth.

Nutrition

My undergraduate Bachelor in Science degree is a general studies degree in nutrition. I had classes in public health, international health, and general nutrition. My degree enable me to understand the health requirements of the society in which I live in. How to meet the needs of the health of my students in special education and the benefit physical education and a balance diet have their total well-being.

Special Needs

I have eight years' experience working with special needs students from k-12th grades. I have tutored students in math and reading for Brain Hurricane and Sylvan Learning Center from second grade to eighth grade. I have a Master's degree in Special education which is cross categorical covering five disabilities from the University of Phoenix. I have had to modify lessons for students according to their learning and physical abilities.
