About Chris

I have been a Special Education teacher for the past 18 years. I have worked with all types of students in grades K-8. I have extensive experience working with ADD, ADHD, Aspergers Syndrome and behavior disorders. I have a degree in psychology which I use to help connect to the " difficult" students.
I enjoy bringing laughter and life lessons to my work. My wife and I also started an anti bullying program that is now used in 8 schools in our district. We have given 100s of workshops on anti bullying and kindness.

I have been trained in Wilson Reading Program, and use literacy circles in my classroom on a daily basis. I also teach multiple reading levels in my class everyday.

I have been working in an elementary school setting for 18 years and have worked with various types of students.

I have been a self contained special education teacher for 18 years. I have had numerous students afflicted with ADD, ADHD and Aspergers. I currently have 6 students with either ADD/ADHD and 2 students with Aspergers in my class.

I am here to help in any subject area or to help out when you need someone to talk to about your problems. I am the out of the box kind of teacher who enjoys having fun while we both are learning from each other. I have been through a lot in my life which helps me relate to whatever you are going through.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have been a self contained special education teacher for the past 18 years. I have dealt with numerous students with ADD/ADHD and currently have 6 students in my class that have these conditions.

Aspergers

In my 18 years in a special education classroom, I have had well over 40 students with Autism, specifically Aspergers syndrome. I use various forms of technology to reach these students. I am currently using chapter books with characters that have Aspergers to help students relate to text. I use iPad and Chrome books to help reach these students need for different types of instruction. I also have a degree in psychology.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught grades K-8 in a self contained special education classroom for 18 years. In those years I have experienced students on all academic functioning levels. This year I have students in grades 6-8, but function on much lower grade levels. I have taught Singapore Math, literacy circles, and various reading techniques. I believe in a behavior modification approach to instruction, where students work for rewards.
