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 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.

Autism

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified K-8 and have an endorsement in math and language arts. I have been a math coordinator for grades K-8 and have tutored many students in these grades as well. I currently tutor in all subjects a 4th graders as well as a 1st grader.I student taught 3rd grade and taught math in grades K-6.

Special Needs

I have been teaching special education for the past five years. I taught two years in a middle school setting and three in a high school setting. My masters is in special education with an endorsement in learning disabilities. I have taught students who are AI, LD, OHI, CI, EI, and ADD. I have taught them science, math, and English throughout these years.
