Experienced Tutor Available For Prekindergarten - 9th Grade Students
I taught middle school social studies, language arts, math, reading, science, and study skills for 10 years. I had the opportunity to teach in mainstream classes which gave me the chance to work closely with students with special needs and teachers of students with special needs. My passion is working with students with ADHD (inattentive or combined as well), and students with learning disabilities. In addition to tutoring, I am available to help your child with online, Florida Virtual for example, classes. I am very good at keeping students organized, and on task. I incorporate study skills into all of my tutoring sessions as well. For the last 6 years I worked as a guidance counselor to 300 high school students with special needs. Prior to that I worked for 2 years as a middle school counselor. I am very enthusiastic, my former students connected very well with me, saying that I was one of the few people in schools who understood them. I have a strong understanding of the accommodations and differentiated instruction and best practices combined with a passion to help students with special needs bloom where they are planted.
