About Marcelle

I have tutored Reading at Bonneville Elementary for two semesters. The children I tutored were mostly children with disabilities or ESOL students. I have also worked at a center for people with disabilities, teaching young people functional and basic skills. I would like to gain more tutoring experience so as I could practice what I am currently learning at graduate school. I am studying the latest most effective teaching strategies at UCF in a Masters level teaching program. I also have an interest in tutoring for the GED and to English Speakers of Other languages as I am doing ESOL endorsement at the moment. Thank you for considering me, Marcelle.

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.

Aspergers

I have a Master's degree in Special Education and have been tutoring students who have Aspergers. I use visual aids and multi sensory activities that involve kinesthetic, auditory and visual use of their senses. I also try to encourage positive ways to communicate in a socially acceptable way. I work on social dynamics while we are also accomplishing academic work. I have have had training in applied behavior analysis, which is important in keeping consistent in each tutoring session for students that have Aspergers.

Ballet

I have studied ballet for 20 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Masters in exceptional education and I am certified for k-12 grades.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Master's degree in education with ESOL endorsement and I am certified in ESOL.

Phonics

I have a Master's in education K-12, I have taken phonetics and linguistics. I have been tutoring reading and phonics for students and have references available upon request. I use a multi-sensory approach, I do word blending, and word segmentation. I let the students clap syllables and work on a rhythm while building fluency. I use multiple intelligences: I show it, say it and then have the student repeat, and write it down, this is similar to Orton Gillingham. I am taking an online dylexia program with the University of London.

Special Needs

I have a Master's in exceptional/special education with ESOL endorsement.

Theatre

I worked for dramatic education an after school drama program. I attended trainings every semester with professional Disney actors. I completed training in puppetry, stage combat, and musical theater. The owner of the dramatic education company in Orlando is Marsha Robbins, and I also worked with Ellie Hauser from united cerebral palsy doing the summer camp theater for special needs, the program is called "Shakespeare with heart."

I have studied yoga for 10 years. I taught it with Crysty Sycup at the Bergen JCC. I have an online certification in chair yoga, and I have a background in movement therapy and have taken movement therapy classes.
