About Kirsty

Hello there,

My name is Kirsty K. Currently I am a Special Education teacher.

This past school year, I worked as a Special Education teacher in the Resource/Inclusion setting. After school, I worked as a ACE teacher / tutor three hours per week. During the 2015-2016 school year, I was also enrolled and completed the Basic Language Skills program at Rawson Saunders Institute. This program is based off the Orton-Gillingham approach. This course taught a research-based approach to teaching essential literacy skills such as phonological awareness, letter recognition, decoding, comprehension, spelling, grammar, and written composition. The previous year, I was a Special Education teacher in the Life Skills setting. During this school year, I also tutored at GradePower.

Previous to the above settings I have taught, I have worked as a camp counselor for children with learning disabilities and a HeadStart / Pre-K teacher.

I enjoy working with individuals and bringing out each unique personality, strengths, and interests.

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.
