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.

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.
