SUNY Geneseo (Special Ed. K-12)
Nazareth College of Rochester (Master's)
I have a vast array of experience in all areas of special ed., from K-12th grade. I have taught in the classroom and have been an after-school and summer tutor for over 30 years. I have taught and tutored LD, ID, ED, Autistic, and Multiply Disabled students throughout my career. I have worked in 1:1, self-contained, and Inclusion (I-COT) situations. I have been a home-hospital tutor for many delicate and intense-needs situations. I am well versed and have a multitude of experiences in all types of learning styles, and possess expertise in adapting lessons and materials to the student's individual needs. I have been a support teacher in all high school subjects, preparing students for regents exams. I am experienced in multi-modal lesson development to provide diversity and rigor related to the common core. I have experience working with IEPs and can modify lessons to fit individual needs. I have an array of experiences dealing with parental concerns and family involvement in their child's education to promote success.
I am dedicated, flexible, patient, intuitive, and willing to work with all students who have tutoring needs. I am available as an online tutor or willing to come to a student's home or meet them in a public space, such as their local library. I am available after 3 p.m. Monday-Thursday and on weekends.

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.
