About Beverly

I have taught special education for 21 years in the public school system. I have tutored nondisabled, as well as students with disabilities from grades K-7. I am a Level I Certified Wilson Instructor. As a special educator, I have utilized a variety of materials, technology, and activities to motivate the reluctant learner. I truly enjoy individual tutoring because it allows me to give immediate feedback and to adjust my lesson plan. As a teacher, I am more than happy to collaborate with my student's classroom teachers. Additionally, I am comfortable talking with parents about their child's strengths, needs, and tutoring focus. I have taught special education for 21 years in the public school system.

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.

ADHD

Students with attention disorders require consistency, attending skills training and appropriate accommodations to optimize focus, motivation and performance. I have worked with numerous students with attention deficits and understand their needs for special supports.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I currently teach a self-contained class for students with autism. I have worked with students with autism for 7 years. I have utilized best practices and researched -based methods with my students.

Dyslexia

I have worked with students with letter reversals, transpositions, etc. I have been successful in assisting students to compensate using a variety of methods, strategies and mnemonics.

Elementary (K-6th)

I've tutored several students in integrated language arts from K-6. I am highly qualified in this area and passed the Praxis II in Elementary Education K-6.

Phonics

I truly enjoy teaching students to read. As a Level I certified Wilson instructor, I appreciate the importance of a strong foundation in phonics and phonemic awareness. I ensure that my students are firm in their ability to blend sounds. A child's confidence expands tremendously when he/she is able to decode words automatically and proficiently.

Special Needs

I have taught students with various disabilities in my career. I have taught in cross-categorical classes. I have been fortunate in my experiences with students with autism, learning disabilities, emotional disturbance, intellectual disabilities, vision and hearing impairments. Additionally, I worked as a speech therapist for 7 years.

Study Skills

I am adept at teaching elementary-aged students in test-taking strategies. I've worked with students on learning keywords to look for, to carefully read questions, and to eliminate improbable answers.
