About Gina

I am a certified Special Education teacher and have taught elementary as well. I differentiate instruction and develop strategies to increase students learning. I teach in the middle school and my students have all increased a grade level in Reading and Math. I will access your child to see where they are and work to develop a plan to improve their learning. I will work with students to teach organizational skills and study habits.

I work with students that are Autistic, Intellectually Disabled, ADHD, Dyslexia, Learning Disabled, etc. I have also taught Elementary students and tutored for over 15 years. I believe that all students can learn. Students learn in different ways. It is my job to determine if they are an auditory, visual, or kinesthetic learner and develop a plan that will enable them to be successful. My favorite phrase, "back up and punt". We may try something and that may not work and I will "back up and punt" to find what will work for your child. Each child is different and each learns differently.

Math is not a matter of memorization of facts. Students need to visually see why numbers work the way they do. I use manipulatives and different strategies to help the student understand the problems; not just rote memorization.

Reading is the foundation of everything. It is important that students have a solid foundation. Reading is used in all other subjects: math, science, social studies. Students need to be confident with word call, fluency, and reading comprehension. I will work to increase these skills.

Phonics is the key to learning to read. I have experience working with students with special needs in all subject matter. I not only have experience in the classroom; but have my own kids that have special needs. So, I have not only the book knowledge but the personal experience to work with your child.

Learning can be fun. Let me teach you the strategies so that you can be successful not only in our sessions; but in the classroom as well. Contact me soon so we can get days and time scheduled.

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.

Baseball

I have coached rec ball for 9 years, travel ball for 3 years, and middle school baseball for 2 years. I understand how to work with hitters, pitchers, and fielding. I know great drills, to field and drive the ball.

Common Core

Being that I teach in the NC public school system, I have access to the common core standards to all subjects. I am familiar with them as I use them to drive my curriculum that I teach.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BS degree in Elementary education K-6th. I have taught K5, 2nd, and 5th grade. I love working with students of this age because this is when you develop their minds and encourage success.

Homeschool

I have homeschooled my children, as well as others for over 5 years. Students learn well if they are engaged in a one-to-one environment. I know policies regarding homeschooling and I connect parents to agencies that will help them.

Phonics

I have tutored phonics over 7 years. I have also taught using phonics in the classroom. Phonics is important for students to learn how to sound out words and to read. Students learn the long and short vowels, blends, digraphs, etc. to help them with sounding out and spelling words.

Softball

I have coached softball for over 3 years. I played softball for over 5 years as well. I pitched and played first base.

Special Needs

I have my masters degree in Special Education. I teach in a middle school intensive intervention classroom. I work with students that have autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities, ADHD, LD, dyslexia, etc. I differentiate instruction to meet the students where they are at and then work on strategies to increase their learning. My students have increased a grade level in reading and math.

Swimming

I have been swimming since I was 5 years of age. I know the different strokes. I was a former lifeguard and have received WSI training to teach swimming lessons.

Track & Field

I have participated in track and field for over 5 years. I ran the 400m, hurdles, mile relay, shot and discus. I participated in the Junior Olympics in the mile relay, 400m, shot and discus. It was awesome. Since then I have coached middle school boys and girls for 2 years in track and field events.
