I have been teaching 20+ years and I love to see the wonder in a student's eyes when they "get it." I am currently working as a special education teacher in a local suburban school district.
Over the years I have taught 2nd and 3rd grades, and all grade levels of special education. I teach to all modalities so each child can succeed. I use concrete teaching methods and make learning fun whenever I can. I individualize for each child, and teach to their interests . I am a believer in keeping parents and teachers in the loop. Open communication between home, school, and tutor is a must. I also coach parents on how to continue to help their child learn. I would love to help your daughter with her writing.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

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 have taught many children who have ADD and ADHD. I also have two daughters, who with their other disabilities, have ADD and ADHD. One on one teaching and teaching in multiple 15 minute lessons works best for most students. Two to three minute breaks between lessons help the student be able to pay attention. I have 25 years experience in special education.
I have been a special education teacher for a metro area district for 19 years. I have taught multiple age groups and have taught and am teaching students who are on the Autism spectrum. I have taken TEACH and am experienced with workboxes and 1:1 teaching. I teach in 15-30 minute sessions and I give kids a break to get up and wiggle. I am also experienced in sensory issues.
I have taught reading to preschool and K-6 students and those with special needs. I was an inclusion facilitator in New York and was a special education teacher inclusion and co-teacher for many years. I love teaching 1:1 and use games and fun activities to make learning fun. I also have resources I can tap into in most school districts in the Metro area for their reading approach. If the approach isn't working for the student, I am flexible and can change how the child is taught in tutoring.
Being a special education teacher, I have taught and worked with children who have hearing loss. My daughters have hearing loss and wear hearing aids. I know some basic sign language. I also have access to deaf educators for advice if needed.
I believe in a phonics approach to reading. Children need to know their sounds in order to sound out words. There are many ways to teach phonics and I take the child's learning style into consideration before I decide how to make learning sounds fun and productive. I am a special education teacher with 25 years' experience.
I have taught reading as part of my curriculum for 20+ years. I have taught elementary, grades 2 and 3 plus special education Birth to grade 6. I currently teach transition students ages 18-21 year olds. I still teach reading everyday.
I am a special education teacher in a local school district. I have 19 years experience teaching multiple age groups for my school district. I love teaching and having to be flexible in order to teach to the student's learning style. All students can learn and 1:1 teaching allows me to be creative in the process.
As a teacher of students with special needs, study and organizational skills have always been taught to my students. Skills need to be organized in a child's mind, on paper and in life in order to be successful. Many people function in organized chaos. Without some sort of study and organizational skills, a student's work does not get completed nor does it get from point a to point b.
