Bio

Potential clients,
As an educator and parent of 3 children--two of special needs, and one of the two with ADD--I understand the frustration and isolation that my child and family have felt through the school system and my child’s own insecurities. As your tutor, I will do what I can to not just educate you as my client on academics, but to set you up with lifelong skills to help you become a productive part of society.

Potential clients,
As an educator and parent of 3 children--two of special needs, and one of the two with ADD--I understand the frustration and isolation that my child and family have felt through the school system and my child’s own insecurities. As your tutor, I will do what I can to not just educate you as my client on academics, but to set you up with lifelong skills to help you become a productive part of society. I will also help your parents understand your frustrations, educate them to help you with your studies, organizational skills, and set them up with skills to help you on your life long journey of living with your disability.

As a certified teacher in EBD, LD, both K-12 and Elementary Education, 1st-6th I have many personal resources at my disposal, teacher friends, and am up to date on most technical advances in school programs. I’m also a learner in the process as well, and don’t claim to be a know it all in every subject. I will at times be learning right beside you, because that is how I will always learn better for your sake, and for future clients.

I believe in being Fun, Fair, and Firm. Fun is learning through hands-on activities as much as possible, teaching new or old ways of best understanding, and implementing the skills learned. Fair are my expectations of you and your parents doing the work asked of me to better your life now and future. Fair is also to challenge you but not to frustrate you and your parents. Everything we will be working on will always be in the best interest for you and your future academic career. Firm are my expectations of you as my client meeting with me and being ready to learn with being prepared, having your materials, and in the mind set to better yourself and ready to learn.

The confidentiality of this position is of utmost importance to me. Anything that is confidential you show or share with me, such as IEP’s, report cards, conversations, etc. will be just that. I will be as professional as if it were in my own classroom and will hold myself to those standards/laws written by IDEA, MEA, and NEA. I can and will research agencies that help be advocates for you and your parents, as well as share my professional and personal opinions on any decisions that may arise while I’m your tutor.

As you read this, you’ll notice we’ll be working together on many levels and from many angles for your education, not just now, but for your future.

My experiences and techniques are too vast to list specifically.

I received my Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) through the graduate school at Bethel University. Through these courses, there were many sessions on teaching study skills to students. Also, having my own child with ADD/ADHD, I've learned other study skills through his teachers, as well researching ideas on the internet on my own. Conducting parent conferences as a teacher, I was able to share my ideas, and discuss their roles in the study habits of their child.

Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

First and foremost I have a child of my own who has ADD/ADHD so I understand the "parent side" of this disability. For the academic side, I have taught ADD/ADHD students in different settings since I was 18 years old. From going on week long camping trips in the BWCAW, to being an academic supporter for a day treatment center for children of mental disabilities just this past year. I have my graduate degree from Bethel, and am licensed specifically to teach children with this disability. I have too many years of experience in this area to list specifically all techniques and methods.
