About Patty

Hello,
My name is Patty and I am a 20 year veteran special education teacher. I have experience with all grade levels and disabilities. I have experience with developmentally delayed, Asperger Syndrome, Autism, learning disabilities and emotional problems. I teach High School Regents courses such as the living environment. I have also taught Regents level English, social studies and study skills.
My philosophy includes setting up student organization and strategy. If a student can develop skills on how to answer step one then the other steps can logically follow. I develop a knowledge base of basic information that the student can generalize into any topic, not just the one being tutored at the time. I identify positive behaviors that will lead to success and better self-esteem. I let the student know it is a risk to learn and through positive interaction they will feel more confident to take a risk and attempt the tasks that may be giving the problem or lack of understanding.
I know everyone's time is valuable and I stick to a routine that will develop success and a plan for the future. Students develop a sense of accomplishment by using better strategies for learning.

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

Certified special education teacher for Eastern Suffolk BOCES for 22 years. I have experience with Regent's level high school courses organizing and delivering curriculum to ADD/ADHD students. I develop reinforcement schedules and break down material into appropriate levels to provide success through multi-modalities that maintain attention to task. I have also used this method on middle school and elementary school students.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a certification K-6 in New York State. I have experience with k-6 in teaching and I also have tutored a home school instruction in kindergarten. I have also taught 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th grade students.

Special Needs

I have 25 years experience teaching special education with BOCES. I have experience in all grade levels and handicapping conditions such as Autism spectrum disorders, emotionally disturbed, learning disabled and developmentally delayed. I have taught Common Core and prepped for Regents exams on the high school level. I have given State and local assessments. I have written individualized education plans and communicated with school districts and parents.

Study Skills

I am a 25 year veteran special education teacher. One of my greatest strengths is helping to organize and motivate children with or without special needs. I assess student strategies and work individually with students to make learning positive through successful task analysis. With organization and positive learning experiences students develop self confidence and skills for success in all areas.
