I have been an elementary, middle, and high school teacher for the past eight years. I began as a math coordinator for a K-8 school where I taught math and worked with all the teachers to improve math scores. I then taught middle school math and English for three years. I currently teach high school special education, as well as math, science, and English. I have my masters in special education and I am also endorsed in math, English, and learning disabilities. I have been tutoring for many years in all subjects. I have tutored elementary students in learning to read and increasing their vocabulary, comprehension, and math scores. I have tutored high school students in chemistry, all math classes, and English.

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.
I have been teaching special education for the past 5 years. Many of my students have ADD/ADHD and I have been successful working with them. I modify lessons for them and try to make things more hands on and specific so they can concentrate. I also talk with them and we come up with a plan that suites their needs. Often they will sit near me and when I see they are off task, I just walk by them and they get back to work. If they are having a really hard day or forgot to take their medication, they often prefer to work in the hall or in the counseling center where distractions are minimized. If tutoring a student with ADD, I understand that they need breaks and may not sit still the whole time. I often give hands on activities that allow them to move around.
I teach special education and have many students with autism. I understand that at times they get overwhelmed and work better with structure. I often use a visual chart with them for their schedule and let them know a few minutes before transitioning to the next activity. I tutor a student with autism and at the beginning we go over what we will be doing for the session. Every week I keep the same structure so he is not surprised when I come. The times that he has shut down because he is overwhelmed, I give him a few minutes to cool down and then I give him two choices of what he would like to do.
