I have a Bachelor's Degree in Middle Childhood education with a concentration in both math and social studies and a Master's degree in Education. I also have 10 years' experience working with special needs students.

I also have experience in tutoring for all GED subjects and I have my own GED textbooks that I prefer to use that I will bring with me.

I often use my own personal experiences to relate to my students; I do have ADD and dyslexia and I use the same tricks that helped me to help my students. I also have something called Apraxia, which affects my speech, motor and sensory skills. Think of Apraxia as a cousin to autism. They are both neurological disorders, one can be autistic and have apraxia, but in doesn't work both ways. Growing up with a disability has taught me a lot about myself and the world around me. Because of this, I am able to relate and understand others who have also struggled in school or don't feel like they are good enough because I too shared those same feelings. Also growing up with a disability has made me stubborn, and I refuse to give up. I reached my goals and I want to be there to help others realize that their dreams can come true.

I'm fun, laid back and I have all the patience in the world. I enjoy teaching and helping others.

ADHD

I have my Master's in Education and I work for a non-profit organization that works mainly with people with disabilities, at-risk, disadvantage and low income. With this background I have worked as a tutor for multiple youth that have various disabilities. I have also tutored a young man for a few years who had severe dyslexia and ADHD. Many times it was trial and error just to find out what worked for him. I understand that people with ADD/ADHD need to take frequent breaks for their own sake and to keep from overloading them with information. I know some people need background noise to study and concentrate while there are others who need the entire house to be quiet. I use my own personal experiences of having ADD to relate to my students. When they express frustration for not being able to concentrate, I am able to understand exactly how they feel. If one way doesn't work for a student then I change tactics, and try something else. Everyone learns differently.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have an education background and around ten years experience working with kids and adults with disabilities. When I worked as a respite provider the majority people that I worked with had Autism. The one thing I learned is that every autistic person out there is different. One case, is not like the next and so to understand and help them, you have to understand and know them. You have to know their quirks, what they love to do, what they are most knowledgeable in and what areas will set them off. Once you know that you can progress to the next stage and help them to learn and to make connections, but if you don't have a connection with the child, and stick to a very structured schedule, you may not get anywhere with the child and that is the first and most important thing when you work them. But each autistic child has the capabilities to learn and to grasp a new concept, they just need someone who understands that and them in order to help them. And I do. I haven't done any one-on-one tutoring with somesome with autism before, but I have been a care provider, and I have worked in early childhood centers with multiple autistic children. It is that experience that I am basing my experience off of.
Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

I hold both a Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Education. While my background is in regular education, I do have over ten years work experience with people with disabilities. Dyselxia is often harder to teach because each dyslexic child is different. They could only mix up their numbers, or their words, or certain letters or maybe they just mix up everything. I tutored my brother-in-law for several years when he was in school and he was severely dyslexic. I have also helped my husband who is also severely dyslexic. Both have improved but the key is to never give up and to keep reinforcing it. I too, have dyslexia but have managed for the most part to keep it contained. There are times when I am stressed and people can tell but for the most, people don't know that I have dyslexia and alot of it is because of the tips and tricks I learned as a child, that I continue to use today to help me. Some of it is retraining your brain and some of it is just being stubborn and not giving up.
Special Needs

Special Needs

I have my Master's in Education and over 10 years of work experience working with people with special needs, anywhere from ADHD to people with Downs syndrome and autism. For about six years I was a respite/care provider for kids and adults with disabilities and that is where most of my experience comes from. I have a degree in regular education but I have always had an interest in special needs kids because I have a disability, I have always wanted to help those who would fall between the cracks or just not get the help they should have gotten. I am very patient and am fine with explaining something over and over and using non-traditional teaching methods in order to help out a student. I was raised that we are all the same. Just because some one might be classified as having a learning disability is okay because all that means is that they learn differently and I strongly believe that. Kids with disabilities, can be taught, it just may not be the same way that everyone else learns.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Lindsay helped me with math step by step. I feel more confident in my ability to learn new things and refresh my knowledge with older things

SARAH, 1 lesson with Lindsay

First tutor session

Lindsay worked on factors and other math skills. She is very patient and willing to work with our son on different strategies to help him learn the way he learns. Thanks

Patient but persistent.

Lindsay has been working with my daughter for the past 7-8 months. My daughter has multiple learning disabilities and is not very motivated. My daughter is an adult but emotionally functions at a much younger age. Lindsay has been very patient and has persevered with a somewhat challenging student. She has managed to work with a student who has a limited attention span and a short term memory deficiency. I am so happy we found her because I am not able to provide the guidance and follow through my daughter needs at this time.
