About Heidi


Bio

Having taught reading and special education for eight years, I feel strongly about incorporating a student's interests and strengths into whatever subject matter we are covering. I am creative and innovative in my explanations and presentations of the subject matter. I can adapt it to an individual's abilities. Knowing that not all students learn most effectively in the same manner, I utilize multisensory approaches whenever possible and appropriate. My goal during the course of a...

Having taught reading and special education for eight years, I feel strongly about incorporating a student's interests and strengths into whatever subject matter we are covering. I am creative and innovative in my explanations and presentations of the subject matter. I can adapt it to an individual's abilities. Knowing that not all students learn most effectively in the same manner, I utilize multisensory approaches whenever possible and appropriate. My goal during the course of a tutoring session is for the student to experience some degree of success. My methods are not always conventional -- my background in speech and theatre ensures that -- but they are responsive to and respectful of the individual's needs. If one way of teaching a topic is not working, I can think quickly of a different way. Everyone can learn anything given the resources, time, and opportunity.

Special Needs

Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

For eight years I taught students with all types of learning disabilities, including dyslexia. Yearly reviews of what it was like to be a student with dyslexia resulted in my continuous search for resources that would allow students to focus on a word or a line instead of being overwhelmed by an entire page of print. Because of my double major of Elementary Education and Special Education I am also familiar and experienced with techniques such as Orton-Gillingham.
