About Dawn

I am a college graduate with a degree in Spanish and Linguistics from the University of NH. I have experience abroad as well as teaching all levels and ages.

I also have experience teaching groups of all ages, group management and facilitation training.

I have basic knowledge of German and French as well. I love to teach and adapt my teaching style to the individual student's needs. I can use existing curriculum but also am experienced in developing whatever a student might need.

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 attended a twelve week course in supporting parents of children's education who experience disabilities including ADHD. I also worked for five years for an aging and adults with disabilities resource center where I learned about the signs. I have many strategies to help students with ADD/ADHD to focus. Medication can sometimes help but behavior modification is essential.

Aspergers

I have worked with students who exhibit symptoms of Aspergers as well as having a stepson who is diagnosed with this disability. The deficits is social communication and awareness make their interactions with peers difficult. We work on personal space, appropriatness of conversations and defecits in age appropriate actities as well age appropriate activities ie perseverance.

Autism

I have worked with students who experience autism as well as have been a mother of a child who experiences autism for almost 15 years. He was involved in Early Intervention and Applied Behavior Analysis and floortime techniques. I feel very exprienced and utilize these techniques when working with my son as well as others who experience autism.

English

My undergraduate degree is in Spanish but also Linguistics. Linguistics studies the universal principles of language and differences among them. My spelling skills are excellent and can help with writing.

Phonics

When I learned English Language they taught phonics. It taught me to be an excellent speller. Of course I am not perfect but I have the basic underpinnings of what the English Language expects for appropriate spelling and phonetics. I also have a degree in Linguistics which has taught me about the universal principals of language acquisition.

Spanish

I have a BA in Spanish and Alternative IV Certification in Spanish, and Special needs among others.

Special Needs

I have a son who has Autism and a step-son who has Aspergers. They have taught me a lot about disability.

I also attended a 12 Week class about disabilities and done a lot of independent study with other parents to understand their own children.
