About Greta

Teaching needs to be based on best-teaching practices, but it also must include a real appreciation of the trust that is necessary between the student and facilitator (teacher). With over 15 years of experience working with children in traditional and non-traditional settings I am able to combine both of these skills!

My many years of working with a variety of age groups and needs means that I bring to the relationship a depth of knowledge and the wisdom to continue to learn as a teacher. Since I am actively engaged in continuing education, I bring current best practices to support a student's growth.

I encourage you to speak to me directly so that we can develop a plan specific to you (or your child's) needs.

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 worked for 4 years with children and youth from ages 9 to 19 with ADD/ADHD helping them to find the study and life skills to be productive in their educational pursuits.

I have been conditionally accepted for a Ph.D. program in educational psychology with goal of learning and exploring even more ways in which to best support this learning difference.

After meeting with you and your student we can, together, develop a plan!

Business

My undergraduate degree from Penn State is in economics. I have 12 years experience running a family-owned business. In addition, I have obtained my PA teaching certification in business and computer technology.

Dyslexia

As a special education teacher in a private and public school setting, I worked with students with reading needs. I completed the Wilson Just Words Training in order to support my work with students with specific learning differences. In addition, I have collected, read and used many reference materials related to dyslexia. I have worked, successfully, with students in the elementary and middle school levels with specific learning differences.

Elementary (K-6th)

My experience includes working with kindergarten through 6th grades often in a multi-age setting. This experience has helped me to develop a greater understanding of the many needs of this age and developmental range. I will help your child find expression through his or her strengths.

Marketing

I currently teach marketing and sports and entertainment marketing at a Pennsylvania public high school. I am certified in PA as a business and computer technology teacher.

Phonics

I have completed and taught the Wilson Just Words program with great success to six students with a variety of learning needs. The multi-sensory and scientically proven content of this program makes it a joy to teach and has show me that it can be successful. What I bring to this scientifically proven program is the ability to connect with each student and make the pathway accessible.

Public Speaking

For over 15 years I have been a professional storyteller in such places as museums, libraries, schools and other venues. In addition I have presented teacher trainings on storytelling, best practices, religious education and more. Community theater rounds out my experience "in front of a crowd."

Let me work with you to find your strengths and develop your ability to speak confidently in front of a group!

Special Needs

I am currently certified in Pennsylvania in Special Education. I have worked with students with learning differences for the majority of my career and have always been and will be tireless in finding ways to support each child's unique needs.

In order to augment my work in special education I have obtained my certification as an Irlen Screener, in Yoga Calm (for students), volunteer at a theraputic riding barn, am pursuing certification in equine assisted growth and therpay, and have a particular interest in dyslexia, dyscalculia, PDD (Autism, Autism spectrum). Having an awareness of the variety of modalities used to assist children with differing needs means I bring a depth and breadth of knowledge and insight to each student.

Study Skills

The students that I worked with in a private middle school/high school in Chester County, PA all had unique learning needs. These needs translated very specifically in developing study skills that supported their independent work and homework. I consider study skills an integral part of educational and lifelong success. When working with your student I will consider their strengths and create a plan to build and support the areas of concern.
