Bio

I have been a teacher and leader in education for many years. I have had the privilege of working with youth from many backgrounds and with many talents and challenges. I love teaching, because it helps me to learn new things everyday as I explore with my students. I truly believe that every individual was born to this earth for a purpose, and as a teacher, I am able to help them explore and be the best that they can be.

I have been a teacher and leader in education for many years. I have had the privilege of working with youth from many backgrounds and with many talents and challenges. I love teaching, because it helps me to learn new things everyday as I explore with my students. I truly believe that every individual was born to this earth for a purpose, and as a teacher, I am able to help them explore and be the best that they can be.

I am a great grammar tutor because I am able to break our complex language into understandable parts. I love having fun with the structure of language. I also guide students toward ways to find the answer when they have a question and I am not around to help.

I have worked with special needs youth for the majority of my career in education. I realized very early on that just because a person learns differently does not mean that they can't learn or that they are any less capable than the next person. In fact, I have found that special needs individuals generally have very unique gifts to be shared. I start by exposing those gifts and have studied and developed many strategies to help overcome learning challenges.

I encourage you to contact me so that we can work together to help you be the very best that you can be!

I have utilized Microsoft Publisher both professionally and personally for many projects. It offers the ability to utilize the space on a page to create flyers, cards, and other graphic designs without having the formatting issues that are inherent in Microsoft Word. I have taken online courses to hone my own skills in Microsoft Publisher, and I have taught others to use the program in both classroom and workshop settings.

ADHD

I worked for 11 years teaching learning disabled youth at the Lab School of Washington and 2 years at Kingsbury Day School in Washington, DC. Both of these institutions are private schools for learning disabled youth. I worked with youth with ADD/ADHD, Asbergers, and Dyslexia. They needed remediation in reading, writing, and math skills.
Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

I worked for 13 years in private institutions for teaching disabled youth. During that time, I worked with youth who exhibited dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. I used a variety of methods for teaching these youth to best suit their individual needs. I have found in working with dyslexic students, it is important to highlight their strengths and then help them master their challenges. I have worked with students to help them manage their written materials so that they are not overwhelmed, color code for optimal clarity, utilize advocates for proofreading, and advocate for their educational needs.

Kind and patient

Margaret was very sweet! My son enjoyed the activities that she brought, but at the same he was learning. Sometimes making things fun is easier to get a child's attention, meanwhile they are learning new things. Hope things continue to go well with Margaret. Thanks! :)

Patient and reliable

Peggy has had three sessions with my son so far in preparation for a mid-term math exam. She has been prompt for all scheduled lessons and we even clambered through an online session due to the snow. Very happy so far.
