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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a Masters degree in Special Education and have worked with many kids of all disabilities but primarily, have worked mostly with kids who have ADD/ADHD. The brain of a child who has this, because the brain is on rapid speed, needs to have the material "chunked" so they can process it into smaller parts, at a slower pace. They often times will benefit from a note-taker so that they may just listen to the instructor instead of having to worry about missing critical information. Often times, kids with ADD/ADHD will have processing issues and need extra reinforcement when it comes to reading comprehension and math, due to the multi-steps problems that can be a challenge.

Dyslexia

I have a Masters in Special Education with additional coursework/qualifications in Reading. As a former Reading Specialist, I was trained in many different strategies to assist students with understanding how to decode and encode words to be able to read and comprehend.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's degree in Special Education, and a secondary Master's/accreditation in Reading. I was a Special Education teacher for 7 years and a Reading specialist for 4 years. I specialize in Orton Gillingham, and am familiar with other methods, such as LIPS, Lindamood Bell, and Visualizing & Verbalizing.

Handwriting

I have taught and am familiar with the D'Nealin Handwriting program and Handwriting Without Tears.

Phonics

I have a Master's in Special Education/Reading with 12 plus years of teaching. I am familiar with teaching many phonics programs, including Saxon phonics, LLI, Orton Gillingham approach, RAZ kids, LIPS, and Read to Me. All of these phonics programs focus on teaching kids the phonemes of the beginnings, middle and ends of words, and that those sounds may make more than one sound, depending on word/placement in word.

Reading

Pls see qualifications on my profile.

Special Needs

I have a M. Ed. In Special Education and have taught k-12 in my 12 years of teaching. I have worked with severe to mildly learning disabled and everything in between. My focus is with children who have difficulty reading.

Study Skills

I have a Master's in Special Education/Reading, plus 12 years of experience teaching kids pre-k to high school. I have taught many subjects, including Organizational Studies to middle school students.

I am experienced in teaching kids who have ADD/ADHD; these kids often times have poor executive functioning skills and need help with managing multiple things at once, such as note taking, studying, organizing, and time management. A good part of teaching kids how to be good students is not just memorizing things to get good grades; it's more teaching them to figure out what information is important, how to prepare their materials to become/stay organized, how to take tests (scan, discard, select, move on, etc.), how to answer trick questions as well as differently structured questions (such as multiple choice, true/false, etc.), how to be detail oriented enough to look comprehend obscure wording, and how to keep thoughts organized to be able to write answers to essay questions on test.
