B.S.Ed from Ohio University- Athens (Special Ed)
I have spent the last 4 years teaching children with special needs in grades K-6. My degree from Ohio University as an Intervention Specialist has allowed me to work in a variety of settings such as self-contained classrooms where I worked with student who have moderate-intensive needs. I have also worked in inclusion settings where I have assisted students with mild-moderate learning disabilities in the general education classroom. I now work in Belton, Texas as a Family and Community Liaison where my role is to support parents and families. I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of families and children and helping them grow together academically and functionally.
My goal for every child is to promote responsibility, problem solving skills, independence and high-self esteem.
I currently hold a dual certification as a general and special education teacher for grades pre-k-12.

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.
For the past 4 years I have worked with children with special needs in grades K-6. I have had the opportunity to participate in several training including ABA, Behavior Intervention Strategies, Language Development, and several research based programs that promote reading and writing. I have worked with children who have mild learning disabilities as well as children with severe and intensive special needs. I have been certified in 3 different states: Ohio, Virginia, and Texas. I have worked with children on varying levels on the spectrum and am passionate about helping students become flexible, independent learners.
I have taught special education in grades K-6 for the past 3 years. My first 2 years of teaching I was in a self-contained room with a student caseload of 22. I worked with children who had very severe disabilities and also supported other children in the general education classroom through inclusion services. After that I moved to a Life Skills classroom where I used a modified curriculum to teach state standards along side of functional skills. My Intervention Specialist degree is from Ohio University.
I am currently in my 4th year of teaching and hold a valid Dual License in General Education k-12 and Special Education k-12. I have been through extensive phonics training in Fairfax County Virginia where I studied researched based programs such as Language! and Lexia. I have worked with children who have anywhere in between mild-intensive needs in the area of phonics. I believe building confidence and providing students with the tools to become independent are key factors in struggling readers.
