Experienced Special Needs Tutor
Hello, my name is Cindy, and I am a recently retired special education teacher. I have 30 years of experience teaching children from preschool through sixth grade. In addition, I have been tutoring special needs students since 2011. I have successfully helped children with learning disabilities, ADHD, mild cognitive disabilities, Autism, and emotional disabilities I have extensive experience successfully working with students who struggle in reading, writing, and math.
I assess each student to determine his or her academic strengths and weaknesses, as well as learning style. I then put together a diagnostic and prescriptive learning plan using research based, programs, and multi-sensory techniques. My lesson plans adhere to the Indiana's Common Core Standards.
I have a vast amount of teacher resources, and I use a variety of materials, and computer programs to keep learning fun, as well as provide the necessary drill and practice my students need. Further, I offer free advice to my clients regarding how they can academically support their child at home. In addition, I help families understand their child's Individual Education Program, and I am available to attend Annual Case Reviews, and parent/teacher conferences.
