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

I worked as a Speech Therapist for 20 years. I was employed by the Franklin County BOCES. I had direct experience helping students with ADD/ADHD. I provided highly structured lessons in an environment that would allow them certain adjustments so they would be able to absorb information in a friendly, rewarding format.

Dyslexia

I have had a number of students with dyslexia in my caseload as a speech therapist employed by BOCES for 20 years. I hold a license for teaching Reading, too. I received my Master's degree in the area of teaching reading.

It is important to guide the student in oral reading sessions. The student may need help with phonological awareness, segmenting or blending phonemes, word retrieval, and summarizing paragraphs. Difficulty in spelling is sometimes associated with dyslexia, too. The emphasis of tutoring is to ascertain the nature of the dyslexia and the specific areas that need to be addressed for each individual.

Phonics

I have twenty years' experience as a Speech Therapist in the New York public school system. Daily, I worked with K-12 children on their language processing skills including grammar and syntax, phonemic awareness, decoding skills,and vocabulary. My students included children and young adults with:
hearing impairment
autism
dyslexia
articulation difficulty.

Special Needs

When I worked in the public schools as a Speech Therapist about 65% of my students were Special Needs students. I treated students with hearing impairment, Autism, Dyslexia, Emotional Disorders, Down's Syndrome, to name just a few.
