About Martha

I am currently an elementary special education teacher in Massachusetts, and prior to that I was a paraeducator for 15 years, working with a diversity of students. Each one has their own distinct learning needs. I establish a rapport with my students and get to know them, so that I can adapt my teaching methods as needed.

I hold a Masters in Theological Studies from Boston University School of Theology.

I am an analytical thinker and observer, so I am able to break down complicated tasks into manageable steps for my students.
I love reaching the light bulb moment with my students. Each one has strengths as well as weaknesses, and it's important to build on those strengths and make learning a positive experience.
Please let me know if I can meet your tutoring needs.

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.

ADHD

I have worked for nearly 20 years in special education, often with students with ADHD. I use verbal and nonverbal cues to refocus students' attention. I try to find ways to teach ADHD students with kinesthetic and tactile methods.

Bible Studies

I hold a Masters in Theological Studies from Boston University School of Theology. My area of concentration was Biblical and Historical Studies. The M.T.S. is an academic degree, unlike the Masters of Divinity, which includes pastoral education and experience.

Dyslexia

I have worked in special education for 17 years, often with students with language learning disabilities. I have been trained in Fundations and the Wilson Reading Program, as well as Project Read. For a dyslexic student, it is essential that a research based, multimodal and systematic program be used, integrating reading and writing. I am currently an elementary special education teacher in Massachusetts, and prior to that I was a paraeducator for 15 years.

Elementary Math

Familiarity with Engage NY, GoMath, and Touch Math programs.

Reading

Trained in Fundations and the Wilson Reading Program, Project Read, and Readers Workshop.

Special Needs

I hold a Masters in General Special Education. I have worked for 15 years with students having physical, cognitive, and learning disabilities.
