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.

ADD/ADHD

I have been around many ADD/ADHD students during my 29 years of teaching. It seems to go in hand with many students who have learning difficulties. As time as gone on, it seems like more and more students are being diagnosed with this problem. Many students have had parents especially mothers who have used drugs in the past and contributed to their child having hyperactivity and /or attention problems. There are many effective medicines or patches that can be used to help the child. As with any medicines there can be side effects. There are also ways of teaching an ADD/ADHD chid to deal with this problem without medicines. Some children can not handle the medicines for various reasons or some parents do not wish to have their children on medication. I have taught many children who are Learning Disabled, Autistic, Mentally Handicapped, etc. who have these problems. It should be dealt with especially when they are of school age if it is interfering with their concentration and performance in academics.

Dyslexia

I have a degree in Learning Disabilities and having worked with many students in my 29 years of teaching , have seen many who were dyslexic. This is a learning problem that can be remediated. There is not exactly a cure but there are methods that can provide the student with ways to compensate for it. There have been many outstanding people in our world who have the problem of being Dyslexic, but have found ways to continue and achieve their goals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in SC and NC for elementary education.(K-6)

Special Needs

I have many years of experience of working with students with Special Needs. I have worked with students who have learning disabilities, autism, mental handicaps, and physical handicaps, as well as students who are ADD and ADHD. I have found that everyone has a different way of learning and learns at a different rate.. Everyone is capable of learning no matter what special need they may have . It just takes lots of patience and hard work.
