About Wanda

I am a certified special education teacher and I have over 14 years of experience as a learning disabilities educator. I specializing in teaching students that have difficulty learning in the traditional classroom. I strongly believe that ALL STUDENTS can learn through the use of differentiated instruction in English, reading, and mathematics.

I utilize a combination of one-to-one direct instruction, technology, and visual aids and manipulatives to reach each individual student. I firmly believe that each child learns differently and educators have to use all means possibly to tap into the learning style of every student in front of them. I am friendly, caring, and easy to communicate with. I have a wealth of resources available to help my students become the best they can be. I believe in having students set learning goals for themselves and help them achieve those goals.

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

As a certified special education teacher, I have been teaching students with ADD/ADHD for 14 years. I understand the learning and attention difficulties associated with this disorder and how to tailor instruction to meet the student's needs.

Desktop Publishing

I have been using desktop publishing to create flyers, business cards, signs, banners, and greeting cards for over 10 years. The programs that I use for desktop publishing are; Microsoft word, Microsoft Publisher, and sometimes even Microsoft PowerPoint. Desktop publishing software helps you to create excellent, creative graphics for presentations. They also save money because in many cases you no longer need to hire a graphic designer to create the simple things.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a current elementary k-8 certification and teach 1-8 grade ELA and Mathematics. I am a highly qualified teacher in accordance with Michigan Department of Education standards. I am currently a resource teacher for grades 1-5.
