About James


Bio

My name is James and for the past ten years, I have been a teacher's aide providing one-on-one, small group, and group instruction in a classroom of high-school aged and post-secondary students with moderate to severe special needs. I have been supporting my students in their inclusion classes by supplementing (taking notes and providing instruction in and outside of class) or modifying curriculum to help student success.

My name is James and for the past ten years, I have been a teacher's aide providing one-on-one, small group, and group instruction in a classroom of high-school aged and post-secondary students with moderate to severe special needs. I have been supporting my students in their inclusion classes by supplementing (taking notes and providing instruction in and outside of class) or modifying curriculum to help student success. In addition, I have been tutoring outside of school with several middle and high school students in math and general studies. When I tutor, I like to start by providing step-by-step instruction and fostering an environment of discussion to review subject matter. I want to be certain that the student understands the content first before moving forward with practice examples. I also want students to be able to let me scribe their work and have them describe either verbally or visually what they are supposed to do. Ideally, all of the steps will allow students to work independently. I am also very personable and like to provide a level of engagement with the student so their time spent learning is a positive experience and does not feel like "work."

Phonics

With several special needs students who struggle with their reading ability, I use a variety of resources to help the students succeed. Using the Edmark reading program (book and computer) I teach students how to recognize and read words from their everyday lives. I also supplement the program with phonics worksheets and classroom lessons to make students understand how words sound and work.

Everyday I work with my moderate to severe special needs students on maintaining their notebooks, their planners, & their organizational skills. I have had numerous inclusion classes where I modify tests or prepare regular education students to take their tests. In addition, I have worked with several students outside of school to prepare them to be more successfully academically with their ability to study & improve their test taking.
