About Margaret

I am Master degreed in a special education field. I have extensive knowledge of language comprehension, reading, expressive language, and study skills. Over my 30 year career I have helped students elementary through high school ages to "get the little pieces" and "understand the big picture." Understanding a single lesson, remembering skills for the next day, preparing for a test, or getting projects finished - these are the hurdles I enjoy tackling with students.

Having worked in a field of special education, I have experience working with students who have a wide range of struggles and needs. I am able to take your child's assignments and show them the key pieces to figuring out the puzzle that's confusing him or her. My goal is to give your child strong reinforcements and supports that will assist him or her across the school day.

Flexibility has always been a need in my work (and life as a parent). So finding the times, place, and methods of working with your child will be a standard part of our work. I prefer to travel to your home or study room at the public library nearest to your home. I can probably accommodate your schedule or needed changes easily. I would expect that we will reschedule, rather than skip, missed sessions. I know that your child has some preferences in their learning style. If he/she works best "fidgeting" or needs other accommodations, I will be happy to help them learn in the way that suits them best. Above all, if for some reason, we are not a good match, my hope is that you and your child will have at least a few helpful tools for the school years ahead.

I know, as a parent, you want the best for your child and you are here because you are seeking the tools that will help your child enjoy and succeed in learning. I wish you all the best and would love to bring my experience to help you in that effort.

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.

Study Skills

I am Master degreed in a special education field. I have extensive knowledge of language comprehension, reading, and expressive language. Over my 30 year career, I have studied (extensively) short and long term memory, retrieval processes and strategies, attention factors in memory, and structures that support memory. Having worked in a wide range of classrooms over those years I am highly familiar with curriculum structures, content, test formats, and teacher/ classroom organization expectations. I have worked with hundreds of students organizing materials and content for study, using a wide variety of tools that support their "learning style" - for success, as they as required to demonstrate their learning in tests, written reports, or other projects. I am very familiar with early elementary through high school content and learner goals.
