About Gail

My name is Gail. I have been teaching for 9 years. I work with any student, but do specialize in working with students with special needs - dyslexia, add/adhd, autism spectrum, etc.

I am a mother of 2 girls. I am married and have one step-daughter. I am in my mid-forties. I worked full time in the oil/gas and construction industries for 10 years before becoming a full-time, stay-at-home mother, so I do have real-world business experience, and know what employers look for in potential employees (which is ultimately the goal of all education - to some day secure gainful employment that will help support the individual and family.) After a few years, I started substitute teaching to bring in extra income. I found my calling, and applied for school the following week. I have been in love with teaching ever since.

I have my bachelor's degree in special education, and my master's degree in education administration. I am certified in the following: Special Education (All-Level), Generalist (Early Childhood-8th grade), English as a Second Language (All-Level), English/Language Arts/Reading (8-12th), Math (7-12th), Principal. I have tutored in reading, writing, histories, sciences, maths, and ESL.

I start by assessing my student's abilities. I identify strengths, and areas upon which a student needs to build. I start small to create success and then build upon that success. That success builds self-confidence, which encourages a student to take bigger risks, which will ultimately result in greater success and more confidence.

Certified in secondary maths (7th-12th grades), currently teaching Geometry and Algebra II.

Taught high school ELA/Reading/Writing for 3 years, and as a long term sub for 3 months which in grad school. Also taught summer school for HS reading. Am certified for ELA/Reading (8-12th), have 30 hours of writing and literature credits, and am certified in English as a Second Language (All Level).

Feel free to contact me to ask me any questions you may have regarding your needs and I'll be glad to help in any way I can.
