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 am a Certified Special Education Teacher with a M.Ed in mild to moderate disabilities. When working with students that have been diagnosed with ADHD/ADD, I proportion their instruction into smaller bits. This strategy helps this group to focus on smaller portions, so they don't get overwhelmed. If needed, I also allow frequent (small) breaks between the tasks/assignments. This method allows the student to regroup for the next task, and is a positive reinforcement.
I am a Certified Special Education Teacher with a M.Ed in mild to moderate disabilities. Initially when I began in education, I was a tutor for 2 students that were diagnosed with autism. One was a student with typical autism. The secon student was not. Hence, with the first, ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) was his parents' preferred training method. Conversely with the second student, other strategies were more effective: songs, dance, and verbal praise engaged her.
