Radford University (Deaf Education)
I am an eager Deaf Ed teacher looking to help Elementary students reach their potential in the classroom. I have worked in both regular education and special education settings and have a variety of experiences. As part of my degree program I was lucky enough to have placements in general education 5th grade, K-12 itinerant Deaf Education, 3rd-5th Deaf Education, and High School Deaf Science at the Deaf School. Because I was blessed to have a variety of placements, I have gained a vast knowledge of strategies and resources. I have learned that all kids have a potential to learn and achieve given the proper strategies and instruction.
Most of my therapy settings in schools focus on a one-on-one approach to ensure maximum outcomes. The most crucial part of tutoring sessions is that the student gains the skills to re-apply the material in the classroom setting. The goal is for the student to learn the foundational skills necessary to be successful in the school setting and life. I have experience working with students with multiple health problems, multiple disabilities, hearing loss, visual impairments, ASD, Learning Disabilities, ADHD, as well as typically developing children. I am excited to start working on the skills the students need to become successful on their own.

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.
I graduated with a degree in Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education from Redford University in Virginia. During this time I completed field studies at the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind, Montgomery County Schools in Virginia (itinerant), and in a regular education placement in Roanoke City Schools. I have been employed as the lead teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Rock Hill, SC for 2 years. I am currently on paths to pursue a Master's Degree and obtain certification as a LSLS Auditory Verbal Therapist.
As a teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing my therapy sessions are often equipping students with the skills to be successful in the classroom. I have 2 years of experience in the schools implementing strategies and methods for students to be able to study and retain information on their own. Many of these students often had other factors working against them making it difficult for them to be successful on their own. Not every study strategy works for every student and I will work hard to figure out how to tap into their potential!
