About Kathy

Hello and thank you for finding me. I have been a special education teacher for 15 years. I have been blessed exponentially. Working in wonderful districts throughout northeast Ohio and with devoted staffs led me to my current day position in Massillon where I have been for 9 years. I have worked with many different types of children including children with learning disabilities, autism, ADHD,other heath impairments, behavior problems and cerebral palsy. I have taught grades k-12 and I'm well versed in the (current) Common Core. I stay current in new strategies and ways to connect with kids. My current position is a Small Group Teacher (tutor) in the 7th grade.

My greatest blessing in life has been as mom to four wonderful children. My youngest is now a junior in high school. Three of my kids do have orthopedic impairments. I believe that this has allowed me to have a greater understanding and connection with the needs of children and the issues of parents. Growing up, my kids and I didn't do many baseball try-outs or gymnastics practices. We were recovering from the latest surgery. These experiences have made my children and I closer and stronger. (I have tough kids!) I relate well with children who have learning difficulties, health concerns or other issues which keep them from school. I connect well with parents because,in many cases, I was them. I'm grateful to God for allowing me the opportunity to become the strong person I am today.

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

My degree is in Severe Behavioral Handicaps or in current terms, intervention specialist. I have worked for the last decade with children having ADHD. I'm an expert in techniques and strategies to assist and re-direct them. I have written behavior plans and more than 500 IEPs.

Common Core

As a teacher for 18 years, I have seen the "Common Core" shift and change nearly every year. Anyone in education knows changes come before the ink even dries. I'm working with young adults in grade 9 this year and have been flooded with "Common Core" or the latest standards. I have a list of the standards and when writing my IEP's, refer to them. My students have goals aligned with them.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 18 years teaching experience. Specifically, I taught in grades K-5 for seven years. I have attended training and workshops in relation to the Common Core. I'm well versed in subjects in each grade level. I taught a self contained K-5 class for three years in Akron. Currently, I do 9th grade but my experience in K-8 is extensive. As far as teaching methods, I'm a specialist with learning strategies to reach children with learning disabilities.

Elementary Math

I have 18 years experience in grades K-9. I have been privately tutoring for many years and love it. I specialize in strategies for remembering information and in the connections I make with my kids. I understand the common core and am fluent with it.

Literature

Hello I'm an intervention specialist with 18 years experience working with children learning to read to those enjoying a high interest novel. I try to pass my love of books on to every child I teach; often buying two books in order to read and later discuss the novel with an interested student. I have also encouraged and enlisted every strategy I have up my sleeves in order to facilitate learning in kids who struggle, as many do. I'm good at what I do and am blessed to be doing it. Thank you

Prealgebra

Hello I'm an intervention specialist with 18 years in many different grades. Currently, I'm teaching at a high school. Previously, I spent a decade in middle school. That is a decade with prealgebra ! I understand prealgebra better than just about anyone and enjoy it too! I know I could help any child learn to love math!

Reading

I'm an IS with 18 years experience. I currently work in a high school with young adults who have special needs. I have studied reading from phonics onward. I have taught children to read and worked with older kids to facilitate reading skills and increased comprehension. I'm an avid reader who loves to pass my passion on to excite children into the reading world. The pleasure being able read brings and the places we can go! Thank you

Special Needs

I am very qualified to teach children with special needs. I have a license to teach special education, and I'm currently a special education teacher. I have 18 years teaching children with behavior problems, autism, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, learning disabled, other health impairments. Currently, I work in a high school setting. I love my job and feel blessed.
