About Angie

I am a certified teacher in Elementary (K-6) and Special Education (N-12) and English (7-12). I also have my Master's Degree in Special Education with a concentration in Behavior Management and Interventions. I enjoy reading and writing, and teaching students about the English language. I have experience teaching English in the classroom, and also have the ability to adapt materials and concepts to an individual student's level due to my training in Special Education. When tutoring, I like find out the best method for the student to learn based on his/her skills or preferences. Some students respond well to answering questions, others like to write the material down, and many like a visual representation of the material. I have experience tutoring through Bloomsburg University. I am a certified teacher in Elementary (K-6) and Special Education (N-12) and English (7-12).

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Special Education. I have worked with students that have ADHD and ADD in the classroom setting. In tutoring, I would provide breaks for the student, chunk the material, and provide immediate feedback.

Aspergers

I have worked with students with Aspergers in the the classroom setting. If I were to work with a student with Aspergers I would give the students ample time to answer questions and assist them with social skills as needed. I have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Special Education grades K-12.

Autism

I also took a course based solely on Autism and the effect it has on children. If I were to tutor a student with Autism, I would provide frequent breaks, use research-based interventions, and give the student attainable goals. I have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Special Education grades K-12.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with elementary students in practicums as well as in the classroom during teaching. If I were to tutor a student in elementary school, I would give the student attainable goals, give them breaks, and use research-based reading and math instruction.

I am certified to teach High School English and am currently employed in the field. I have direct knowledge of the curriculum used and APA AND MLA citation.

Praxis

I have passed 4 Praxis tests to be certified in the state of PA to teach Elementary Education, Special Education and English 7-12. I have tutored study skills at the college level. I also teach test-taking skills at the high school level to students taking the Keystone Exams.

Reading

I currently teach 10-12 grade English and am certified in the state of PA to teach English.

SAT Reading

I am certified to teach English in the state of Pennsylvania. When tutoring a student in reading, vocabulary skills are very important. I would use a variety of methods, such as context clues, rereading, question and answer, and meta-cognition to name a few. Students would also be encouraged to read a book of their choice outside of the sessions to increase their reading comprehension and fluency.

SAT Writing

I work with students on their writing on a regular basis as an English teacher. I have experience with several different types of graphic organizers, proper grammar, and the steps in the writing process. Students will be encouraged to use their critical thinking skills to better organize and understand their potential in writing.

Softball

I have played softball for 12 years at the position of First Base. I am a natural lefty (which means I both bat and catch left-handed). I know the rules of the game and have my own equipment.

Special Needs

I have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Special Education with a concentration in behavior. I have work with students with Special Needs int eh classroom on a daily basis. If I were to tutor a student with a disability (Special Needs) I would use research-based interventions an strategies. I would also provide the student with breaks and give him/her immediate feedback on assignments.

Study Skills

I have tutored study skills at the college level as well as taught study skills to high school students. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Bachelor's and Master's in Special Education with a concentration in behavior. If I were to tutor study skills to a student I would first assess the student's strengths and use those to build good study habits.
