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.
I have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education (with and without disabilities). My experience as a classroom teacher has given me opportunities to work with students with many disabilities, including ADD/ADHD. I utilize games and interactive activities to teach/tutor. When teaching students with attentional difficulties, I teach techniques to help my students focus on what is important in the given tasks, so they can have tools to help themselves in their classrooms.
I hold dual licensure in both early childhood education and elementary education. I currently tutor students with special needs in the areas of math, reading, phonics, and writing. I also teach third and fourth grade mathematics. During my tutoring sessions, I make learning fun by incorporating games. My lessons are catered to each individual student. I use the student's particular learning style to make the lessons meaningful to each student.
I use a mixture of direct teaching and hands on learning games to reinforce math concepts. It is my focus to take away the fear your child may have surrounding math and make math relevant and fun.
I have several years experience teaching in the early grades and teaching beginning reading. Although I am not certified, I have experience with the Wilson Reading Program and Foundations Phonological Program. I combine practice drills with stimulating games to boost my students reading success. I make learning to read fun and create a love of reading.
