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 teach special needs students and have for 9 years. This includes students with ADD/ADHD disorders. After students are evaluated using the BRIEF exam, I look for deficiencies in executive functioning skills and help students in filling their life tool box for these skills. Such lessons include tools for organization, shifting from one task to another, chunking large task and initiating tasks.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I wrote my research paper for my specialist degree on autism. The paper was over 44 pages long and dealt with current research on autism and why number of children are increasing. I have taken numerous graduate level courses on autism and worked with these children in the classroom setting. Each autistic student is different, thus I would have to get to know their strengths in order to develop a tutoring program that meeds their needs.

Phonics

I currently teach phonics on a daily basis in my classroom. I have worked with a couple of phonetic programs, such as SRA and Wilson reading. With teaching phonics, it comes down to finding what skills the student is missing and teach those skills to help the student.

Special Needs

I am currently a state licensed special education teacher with a license for teaching that is good for 101 years. I have been teaching special needs students for 9 years.

Study Skills

I currently teach special education students at the elementary level. I have a bachelors in psychology, a masters in education and a specialist in administration. With teaching study skills, I have to work with students in teaching them how to study and be successful. Teaching study skills involves teaching students how to remember key elements of content and learning strategies to help them build their learning.
