About Tina

I have been a Special Education Para for 13 years and love my job!! I began as a kindergarten para working with general ed students in all subjects. I loved what I was doing watching these 5 and 6 year olds learning new things every day. As the years went on I began working more and more with Special Ed students, students with ADHD, Autism, ADD, LD and DCD. I found I had a special bond with students that were academically and socially falling behind, and/or had behavior issues.

In the past 5 years I have moved from elementary aged students to middle school and now have spent the past 3 years with high school aged children. I have roughly 16 students that I divide my day between going to class with them, help to control behaviors, modifying assignments and tests and helping with every day assignments including homework in every subject. I also extent my help in every class to General Ed. students as well. I work as a one to one on many occasions with students that are falling behind or need extra help in an area they struggle with.

The enjoyment, fulfillment and happiness that I get from my job when a student finally gets something that they have struggled with, gets a better letter grade or just accomplishes writing a two page paper they have put off writing and turns it in and are proud that they did it just can't be put into words. I attend their graduations and watch them succeed with the greatest feeling of pride ever!!

I am in an English class on a daily basis working with the teacher and my students, helping them understand vocabulary, and with reading skills. I love to read so this is a subject I understand well. I scored a 476/480 on the ParaPro Assesment in English and Math.

I have 9 years of experience working with elementary aged students in handwriting, spelling, learning sounds and pronunciation in all levels of ability.

I love helping students and have many years of experience! Please contact me, so we can meet your needs and the needs of your child together.

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.

ADHD

I have 13 years of experience in working with K-12 students with ADHD and ADD in one to one and group settings. I work closely with these students, sometimes an entire school year with one student.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have 13 years of experience working with autistic children aged K-12 in one to one and group settings. I have worked with severe autistic children to mild autistic children. I have experience working with children that have out bursts and behaviors on a regular basis. I connect very well with autistic children and have excellent references that state this as well.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 8 years of experience working with K-6 grade students as a Paraprofessional helping with all general studies, handwriting, math, science, reading, in one-on-one and group settings. I have helped with MCA testing and General Ed testing. I have worked with Special Ed students in all areas of study as well. I scored a 476/480 on the ParaPro Assessment which covers all areas of study in K-8 education. I have excellent references.

Handwriting

I worked with elementary students for 8 years learning handwriting skills, writing the letters of the alphabet properly, including cursive and sentence building, and writing their first and last names. I worked with minority students as well as Special Ed students on properly holding a writing utensil.

Medical Coding

I graduated from Ultimate Medical Academy in Medical Billing and Coding with Honors and a 4.0 GPA in March 2015.

Political Science

I have been in a Political Science class working with Special Ed students for the past 2 school years. I will continue being a part of this class for years to come. I give tests and help with assignments regarding the Political Science class for high school students.

Special Needs

I have 13 years' experience working with students with Special Needs. I have worked for 3 years with DCD students in which my duties included diaper changes, toileting, personal hygiene, students with the inability to talk, read or write. I followed a daily routine academically and socially with the students.
