About Tatianna

I have raised a son with autism who has made tremendous progress due to my dedication and expertise in ABA and Pivotal Response interventions, speech therapy, occupational therapy, social skills therapy, sensory integration therapy, sign language, and food therapy. My book is living proof of our family's successful journey. I have also raised a daughter with dyslexia, who has made great strides due to my 1-on-1 reading/phonics interventions. I have worked as a special needs advocate for 3 years. I have played the cello for more than 20 years and currently play with a professional cello quartet, La Cella Bella. My daughter is 11 and my favorite cello student. As the daughter of two art teachers, I have been exposed to many creative mediums and prefer painting and drawing most of all. I love little kids, and want with all my heart to help them live up to their fullest potential.

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

My non-verbal son was diagnosed with autism and an IQ of 50 at the age of three. I learned a multitude of autism-related therapies through our early intervention agency. After 3 1/2 years of intense, 1-on-1 interventions (where I was his primary therapist), my son was no longer severe enough to meet the qualifications for autism. My book describes in great detail the strategies and therapies I employed to help my son succeed in life. I desperately want to help kids with autism live up to their fullest potential.

Cello

I have played the cello for more than 20 years and am a professional musician. I play with La Cella Bella, a well-known cello quartet in my community. I have taught cello lessons for 3 1/2 years and enjoy it immensely.

Drawing

As the daughter of two professional art teachers, I have had a great deal of experience with almost every creative medium. Drawing is my favorite medium, and babies are my favorite subjects. These detailed, black and white penciled keepsakes are well-loved by other art enthusiasts. I have also taught drawing techniques to elementary students for 15 years.

Special Needs

I have raised a child with severe anxiety, a child with autism, and a child with dyslexia. I have read a great deal, attended many trainings and seminars, and have personally and successfully worked with my own children for 15 years to help them overcome their struggles. I worked as a special needs advocate for 3 years and personally understand what is required to help special children.
