I work in a private school as the intervention specialist. I work with children from varying ages and abilities in both elementary and middle school age groups. I have had a lot of experience in many subject areas, varying from Math, Spelling, English, and Reading. I plan various lessons based on students abilities, which is also based on the regular education teachers plans. I am very adaptable and willing to find what works best for my students. I think outside the box, because students (adults too) think in many different ways, therefore they learn in many different ways. So I feel its my job to find what works best for each of my students in each subject I teach.
I work part time, and have 5 boys who attend elementary school. I have 2 boys that have special needs. I am familiar with service plans / IEP's and other educational plans within both private and public schools. In my free time, you will find me at the YMCA or at sporting events with my family.
I love teaching because it enables me to meet so many different students and families. I am able to be creative and voice concerns for my students who are not able to voice concerns for themselves. I love looking and researching new ways of presenting information so that my students understand concepts taught in the classroom. I believe that tutoring also enables me to work closely with students and get to know their individual learning styles. I believe this is a valuable tool in teaching!

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.
I am an intervention specialist with licensure K-12. (MEd)
I have worked with children who have add/adhd, autism, and many other emotional or learning discibilities in the classroom. I use many tools to reach students that learn differently than typical students.
I'm qualified to tutor this area because as an intervention specialist, it's my focus. Study skills are imperative in the classroom and my focus is always what works best for the student. Study skills is not area that needs to be "tested" by a good teacher; study skills need to be taught daily by all teachers with experience in the classroom. All students learn differently and respond to different study habit. Its my job to find out what works best for him/her.
