I have a MAT (master's of arts in teaching) with an emphasis in special education. I have several years of teaching special education, a research thesis that focused on organizational skills in girls with ADHD, and I also am a parent of a child with ADHD.
I'm an elementary special education teacher that loves to teach students with ADHD. I can teach study skills, math, reading (fluency, comprehension, basic reading skills), and organizational skills. I can also teach all other students too, but I incorporate games and real life situations when I work with kids.
I use many different types of hand held items, or manipulatives, and like to show students how these math skills will be useful in their everyday life. I like to use active learning techniques.
I teach grammar through writing and games.

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 received a MAT (masters of arts in teaching) in special education from University of North Carolina, Charlotte, in August of 2012. I completed a research thesis on "Organizational Skills of middle school girls with ADHD" and have experience as a teacher, researcher, as well as a parent, in working with students with ADHD. I utilize active learning techniques and try to relate learning with every day situations (eg. fractions and cooking).
Dyslexia is a processing struggle. Students with dyslexia need support as well as encouragement to help them overcome the struggles that come with this particular learning disability. I use nurturing and encouragement as I work with students. I help students figure out WHY certain subjects are necessary for every day life.
Phonics are so important when learning to read, and if students do not know phonics, reading is next to impossible. When students do not have this basic skill, they cannot read past an elementary school education. I use pictures and various direct teaching techniques to improve phonics skills.
