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 am a Special Education teacher, with over 20 years of experience with special needs students. I hold a Master's degree in Special Education and also teach a Special Education course in a teacher prep program at a university. I have worked with many students with ADD/ADHD.

Aspergers

I am a special education teacher, who has worked with many students with Asperger's. I have also done extensive independent research into autism spectrum disorders. I work in a high school, and do mostly inclusion. We have many students with Asperger's, and, while each is definitely an individual, they have many common characteristics. I am very familiar with their needs, characteristics, and learning styles.

Autism

I have been teaching special education for over 20 years. I have worked with students with Autism on all parts of the spectrum. I am very familiar with their needs. Students with autism need routine and familiarity. They are visual and concrete learners, so they need pictures and hands on activities. They have difficulty generalizing concepts, so they need practice in many different settings. They need to feel comfortable with people in order to work with them. They struggle with social and interpersonal skills, so they often need help in these areas as well.
I hold a master's degree in special education. I am an adjunct professor of special education at Rutger's University. I have done extensive research into autism and how to work with students with this condition. I understand their needs and behaviors. I have the experience, skills, and knowledge to work with these students. I can teach them the academics that they need in a visual, hands on way. I can deal with their behaviors calmly and easily, so as to not accelerate any behavior problems. I understand their social skill deficits, so I have techniques to help them understand subtle cues. I can rephrase questions that are difficult in a way that helps them relate to the topics.

Dyslexia

I am a special education teacher. I have been teaching students with all types of learning disabilities for many years. Students with dyslexia need reinforcement of sound-letter patterns and combinations. They often have strong comprehension skills, so context clues are a strong strategy for determining unknown words. They also struggle with spelling. When teaching these students, it is important to use positive reinforcement and encouragement, in order to keep them motivated.

Praxis

I have passed three PRAXIS II tests: Elementary Content knowledge, High School English, and High School Math. I received a certificate of recognition for passing the Elementary Content test in the top 15% of test takers.

Special Needs

I have been teaching special needs students for over 20 years. I have worked with students with all types of disabilities in all types of settings. I have worked with students in residential, self contained, and inclusion settings. I have worked with students with learning disabilities, healh impairments, emotional disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and autism. I have used many different teaching strategies and can target strategies to meet individual needs.

Study Skills

I have been teaching students with all types of disabilities for over 20 years. A large part of working with students with special needs is teaching study skills. It is important to emphasize organizational techniques for studying. It is also important to understand a particular student's learning style. No two students are alike, and what works for one will not necessarily work for others. For study skills, organization and an understanding of how the student learns are the most important pieces. I can evaluate a student's learning style and work with the student to create a learning and study plan that will meet his or her individual needs.
