Rhode Island College (Elementary Education)
I graduated from Rhode Island College this past May (2014). I majored in elementary education with a concentration in special education. I have had numerous experiences working one-on-one with students during my practicum hours which were required with each education class I took while at school. Practicum hours required us to travel to different schools, different classrooms, and to work with all different types of students. From working with so many different students, I have learned how each child has their own particular learning styles/needs. My experiences have taught me how to differentiate instruction to properly meet the needs of all different learning needs. During my last year of college, I completed my student teaching. For the first half of the year, I taught in a second grade classroom and for the second half of the year, I worked with students with special needs. Teaching students with special needs was one of the most challenging yet most rewarding experiences I have had. Although it involves a lot more time and patience, it is completely worth it when you help a child reach their learning goal. From teaching students with special needs, I have become very good at adjusting and modifying all types of instruction to meet the needs of children.I have learned that anything is possible when the right adjustments/modifications are made and when proper time is dedicated.

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.
While studying special education at Rhode Island College, I took a course that taught about different disabilities. Autism was one of the main focuses in this class and I was able to learn so much about it through this course. Along with this course, I worked in a self-contained Autistic classroom for about five months. This classroom contained sevens students of different ages who were all diagnosed with Autism. During my time in this classroom, I worked with all seven of the children and taught a whole unit to one particular student on letter ending sounds. After teaching my unit, and evaluating the student's work I saw that he made incredible process. This experience taught me how children with Autism can be taught any material with proper modifications, accommodations, and time. I also worked with a boy who had severe Autism when I completed my student teaching for special education. Through these experiences, I found that teaching students with Autism is something that I really am passionate about and would like to dedicate myself to. I have learned how to engage them, gain their trust, and get them to do what I ask.
