About Loren

I love to help people. I have my master's degree in education. I am a certified special education teacher and I teach full time special education at a high school. I have additionally worked many years in the elementary setting. I love working with children of all ages. I love to read, learn and teach others. I also would love to become fluent in ASL one day.
In addition to teaching I have done reading therapy with my dog. It is amazing what results you can see from a child reading to a dog! I also volunteered at a local children's hospital when I lived up north just playing games with and interacting with patients. It was a truly rewarding experience! I love helping/working with children and hope to get the opportunity to work with your child one day too!

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 certified in special education birth to 2nd grade and k-12. I have patience and compassion in working with this type of children. I have taught ADHD children over the summer when I taught summer school and in addition I currently teach children with ADHD how to swim.

Aspergers

I am certified in special education birth to 2nd grade and k-12. I worked in and out of the school (teaching swimming) with students with Asperger's and also have a friend of the family who has Asperger's. I have a special understanding for those who think differently and a great deal of patience. I think this would help me in working with this type of children.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in special education birth to 2nd grade and k-12.
I taught summer school this past summer to both regular and special ed students who were about to enter 4th grade.
I am a good teacher and I know how to adapt lessons to various skill levels.
I have done day to day subbing in regular education classes as well as long term sub positions in elementary education classrooms.

Handwriting

I teach 1st grade so I make sure that I have my students work on the proper way to write by modeling and using worksheets where they can trace the dotted letters to assist them.

Hard Of Hearing

I have intermediate sign language skills, and experience with the Deaf and hard of hearing and believe I would be great tutoring hard of hearing individuals.

Phonics

I have experience with phonics lessons. I taught summer school to 3rd graders who were struggling with reading. In addition, I did a long term sub position with kindergarteners who were learning to read.
My specialization when teaching summer school was with incoming kindergarten students working on reading readiness skills.
I am also certified in k-12 special education.

Sign Language

I am qualified to help with basic ASL skills. (ASL level 1/101 and possibly level 2.)

Special Needs

I am certified in special education birth to 2nd grade and k-12.

Study Skills

I would love to help kids with their study skills and I feel like my background would be great in helping me do so. Learning the appropriate skills to do well in school did not come easy for me when I was younger. I had to work really hard and build my own strategies to be successful. I came from someone who struggled in school to someone with a masters in special education.
