About Greta


Bio

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. ...

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

All reviews understandable

She is very patient and supportive

Greta has taught my son organization and studying skills. In addition, she is attempting to concentrate on how my son feels about the grades and school work he is submitting. Something I don't believe he has thought about previously.

Debbie, 12 lessons with Greta

Very nice

Greta has been tutoring my daughter for about two months, and my daughter always asks when she is coming again. That in itself is a good review because she can be a little hard to please.
