About Stephen

I am currently employed as an elementary special education teacher and I am pursuing tutoring opportunities during after school hours. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and Master of Education Degrees in Special Education and Early Childhood Education. Throughout my career I have worked with students from kindergarten through grade six and I have specialized in teaching reading, writing, and math to struggling learners. I have acquired many strategies to help students learn and be successful at the elementary level.

I am knowledgeable on the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. I have implemented various math programs within my instruction such as Envision Math, Math in Focus, and Everyday Math. I am currently working with a group of colleagues in writing a new math curriculum for fifth grade in the school district with which I am employed.

I have taught reading comprehension strategies using both nonfiction and fiction. I am well versed in vocabulary instruction especially the methods used by Beck, McKeown, and Kucan in their book Bringing Words to Life. Since I was an English major in college, I have been well trained in the structure of the English language.

I am trained in both the Wilson Reading System and Orton-Gillingham. I have been successful with teaching phonics skills to beginning readers as well as to older readers who may have gaps in their phonics development or who need to increase their fluency skills.

I am available to tutor in your home on weekdays between 4:00 and 8:00. I welcome the opportunity to hear from you and to be able to assist your child with his or her education.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary Math

I have experience teaching math from grades one through six. I have implemented various math programs such as Envision Math, Math in Focus, and Everyday Math. I currently work with students who struggle with math and I have developed modifications and accommodations to help them succeed.

Phonics

I have completed a 45 hour course on Orton-Gillingham and I also completed a ten hour course on advanced Orton-Gillingham. This summer, I just completed a 15 hour introductory course on the Wilson Reading System. I did take this course over ten years ago, but I never obtained certification. Since I am now pursuing certification, I had to retake the course. I have been teaching O-G and Wilson for the past 16 years and the course I took this summer does qualify me to teach Wilson.

Reading

I have experience teaching reading from grades one through six. I am trained in both the Wilson Reading System and Orton-Gillingham which are multi-sensory approaches to teaching reading decoding and fluency. I have also received extensive training for comprehension and vocabulary instruction.
