About James

I am a special education teacher who is licensed in a number of special education subjects. While I am currently an elementary teacher, I am licensed in grades K through 12. I have extensive experience working with children of many ages in a variety of settings, whether it is a school or a camp setting. I would be willing to aid tutees with homework help, as well as provide any support that they may require to be as successful as possible.

I enjoy working with children, especially in helping them achieve the best that they can. In my experience, children learn the best when they are aware of the expectations of them inside a trusting environment.

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

I am a special education teacher who is licensed in a number of special education subjects. I have extensive experience in providing services for students with autism. My initial teaching experience was in a self-contained classroom for students on the autism spectrum grades 3-5. From there, I have provided private tutoring for students with autism in a private setting in conjunction with other service providers.

Dyslexia

I have been extensively trained in the Orton-Gillingham method of direct phonics instruction. These include: the Wilson Reading System, Just Words and Fundations. I have also obtained my master's degree in special education with a concentration in learning disabilities. I also utilize a number of multi-sensory strategies for reading and writing instruction.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a licensed elementary education teacher, I am current on all methods used to address student expectations in the new Common Core requirements.

Phonics

I have been trained in, and taught the Wilson Program, reading foundations as well as all SRA Instructional materials and programs.

Special Needs

I started my career in education as an assistant for the exceptional children department in my school. I have since completed coursework for my exceptional children (special education) licensing. I have worked as the lead teacher in a self-contained class for learners with autism, and I am currently working as the elementary resource teacher.

Study Skills

As a special education teacher, I am versed in a number of ways to accommodate any deficits in study skills a student might have.
