About Bridgette

I have an MEd from Lincoln Memorial University and a BA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I am certified in and teach both Special Education and English/ Language Arts. I have been trained in the Wilson Reading Program, which was designed with dyslexia in mind.

I assess students (almost) daily on reading fluency and comprehension. I have tools to assess and determine placement for both reading fluency and reading comprehension for students grades K-12.

My experience has been working with middle and high school aged students. I have taught 7th, 9th, 11th, and 12th grade English.

I have experience working with students with learning disabilities as well as autism.

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.

Autism

I am a special education teacher and I work with autistic students on a daily basis. My students represent different areas on the spectrum. Over the years I have had students who were virtually non-verbal, those with tics and repetitive gestures, to those with social awkwardness and learning difficulties. I am the "go to" person for the autistic kids at my school.

Dyslexia

I am trained in the Wilson Reading Program. Many of my students suffer from dyslexia and I am familiar with what this looks like and how to work with these kids. I also have resources and assessments to screen for dyslexia.
