Hi there! I'm Maggie, and I can help you with Math, Writing, Spanish, ACT/SAT Prep, Homework Organization, Time Management, Executive Function issues, and other Learning Disabilities.

My 9+ years working in Education are detailed in my resume below.

PHILOSOPHY
I provide students with an instructional environment that fosters collaboration, confidence, and motivation. Effective tutoring goes beyond homework help - it requires tailored practice problems and learning activities that supplement work required by the student's teacher.

SUMMARY
Over the last nine years, I have tutored students in Buenos Aires, New York City, and Seattle. I was a Math and Special Education teacher in the New York City public school system for six years. During this tenure, I planned and implemented interventions for middle and high school students with autism, and I was nominated Lead Teacher in my school district. In Seattle, I worked at a private school teaching Math, Language Arts, and Social Studies to middle and high school students with autism, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, executive function disorders, and other learning disabilities. I wrote educator resources on strategies for working with students with disabilities, and I developed a program for building executive functioning skills which was used school-wide. Currently, I also work as a curriculum consultant and tutor for home school students.
