My name is Devon. I graduated from Marshall University with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education.

I have also worked closely with special needs students, working one-on-one to modify and help the student succeed in a general education setting. I have tutored for Enterprise Tutoring through Marshall University while I was in school. I worked in the school system and provided small group and one-on-one tutoring to those that were struggling in their general education classes. I have also been certified in the Wilson Reading Program and have worked at the Appalachian Reading Center, where I worked with small groups in an intensive and very special and help the student succeed in a general education setting. I have tutored for Enterprise Tutoring through Marshall University while I was in school. I worked in the school system and provided small group and one-on-one tutoring to those that were struggling in their general education classes. I have also been certified in the Wilson Reading Program and have worked at the Appalachian Reading Center, where I worked with small groups in an intensive and very specialized reading program.
While tutoring I like to find out what the student enjoys or what they respond to and then incorporate that interest level as much as possible while teaching. It is also important for the student to have successes along the way so that they increase their self-esteem and feel good about them. If a student has a positive attitude and enjoys what they are learning they are more likely to continue to work hard and be successful at what they are doing. I believe in doing things hands on and being actively engaged while learning, worksheets and books are good are work reinforces but to learn the needed skills you have to understand why it is important and its value in the real world.

ADHD

I have spent five years teaching in an elementary classroom where I have encountered several ADD/ADHD students. It has been my role as a teacher to help them be successful students by teaching them how to focus during instruction, how to get organized and successfully complete assignments, and to manage time and complete assignments on time. I have tutored several different ADHD students in which we worked on study skills, getting organized and mnemonics to help them remember and to jog their memory.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

During my five years of teaching I have had three different autistic students in my classroom. Two of them were upper elementary and with those students we worked on basic skills of writing and communicating effectively in the classroom. I taught them work on a modified level and also taught to their APTA standards that they were expected to learn. This year I had a kindergarten autistic student and we worked on getting the student ready to learn, teaching him procedures and appropriate classroom and schoolwide behaviors. He was taught to work and meet our expectations and then he would be given a reward or special privilege.

During my five years as a teacher I have had special needs students in my classroom every yera. I have had learning dissabled students, add/adhd, and autistic. I have helped these students by modifying work and teaching it in several different modalities so that they can understand the instruction in the way that they learn best. I have worked one-on-one with all of these students and helped them in anyway that I can to make them successful students.
