About Nathan

I recently completed graduate school this May. I currently have my master's degree in special education pre-k-8/7-12 and reading specialist certification pre-k-12. I have student taught in learning support, emotional support, title one, and life skills (elementary and secondary) classrooms.

My previous tutoring experience consists of tutoring an elementary life skills student in: letter recognition, letter/sound correspondence, letter writing, and name writing. I have also developed an online tutoring site, through goformative.com, for a potential student with dyslexia.

I am dedicated to ensuring that students with special education needs, are provided with the most effective instruction that can be delivered to them. All instruction that I provide has been researched and have been shown to be effective in students with special education needs. I am well versed in applied behavior analysis (behavior management), functional reading/mathematics (life skills), reading skills and strategies, and phonics instruction.

Students that I work with will be provided with the most effective instruction that will be most beneficial to them, not only for their present educational performance, but also for their educational life time.

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.

Aspergers

I have training in applied behavior analysis and can implement these skills to manage student behaviors during lessons, or to teach positive social skills. I have also taught units on social skills, coping with feelings and emotions in a positive way, and how to build relationships with peers. I have also taught students on the autism spectrum by using direct, systematic, and explicit instruction in a variety of subject areas. To assist students with Aspergers, academically I can provide instruction in content area subjects through systematic instruction, functional skills through explicit instruction, and social skills by using social stories and video self modeling. To manage self stimulatory behaviors, I can determine the antecedents and provide behavior management strategies to minimize the overt occurrence of these behaviors.

Autism

To manage self stimulatory behaviors, I can determine the antecedents and provide behavior management strategies to minimize the overt occurrence of these behaviors.

Dyslexia

I have taught in two separate title one classrooms, taught reading in life skills, and I have taught reading in learning support environments. I have a wide skill and strategy base to tap into so that students can have the most effective instruction possible. I have taught using the following programs: SRA Open Court, Journey's, Leveled Literacy Intervention, and Hooked on Phonics. I have also taught using material from Reading A-Z, and I have constructed material to supplement any and all content that the main lesson hit.

Phonics

I have taught phonics in a variety of situations (in isolation/in content). I have used SRA Open Court, Leveled Literacy Intervention, and Hooked on Phonics while teaching this content. I have also administered the Core Phonics Survey multiple times to modify instruction to best fit the student's needs.
