THE TUTORING TEACHER
Learning Beyond the Classroom
I am Special Education teacher with 16 years experience. I am also Elementary Ed. and Middle School certified. I offer homeschooling and tutoring services.
A PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR AT YOUR SERVICE
I am an experienced, personable, and qualified Special Education teacher. I have been teaching and tutoring since 2001. I am trained in the following programs; Wilson Reading, Orton Gillingham, Handwriting without Tears, Lindamood Bell (Visualizing and Verbalizing and Cloud 9 math) Touch Math, Lucy Calkins (Reading and Writing) and Applied Behavior Analysis. I am also CPR and first aid certified.
As a well-rounded educator, I have had the chance to teach a diverse group of students including those challenged by autism, learning disabilities, and noncompliant behavior, as well as children who functioned on and above grade level. Consequently, I have gained in-depth knowledge of accommodating different styles of learning and incorporating effective methods to meet students’ unique needs.
I encourage student learning by incorporating creative learning centers, various forms of technology, hands-on activities, games, and fun manipulatives. These methods prove to stimulate students’ social, emotional, physical, and academic growth. In addition, I utilize these strategies to introduce new concepts, establish a connection between the classroom and everyday life, foster and exciting and engaging atmosphere, and teach fundamental skills.
My desire to become a Special Education teacher was influenced by my learning difficulties as a young girl. I received speech services, basic skills instruction in Elementary School, and was diagnosed with petit mal epilepsy at the age of 7 and outgrew it at 15. I remember feeling so insecure compared to my peers. I am grateful for the teachers and therapists that helped to become a successful student. They will be imprinted on my heart forever! I want to give back and give my students the same opportunities that I was so blessed to receive.
What I Offer
Teaching isn’t just ingraining information into students’ minds to memorize — it’s about providing them with the tools they need in order to think critically and succeed. I believe that successful teaching changes habits, and ultimately improves quality of life. Since 2001, I have provided students with private lessons, and homeschooling, and have helped all of them reach their potential.

As a Special Educator, I understand the importance of using a variety of modules to instruct students. Online tutoring is engaging and can help students with a variety of skills, in addition to typing.
I know how difficult it can be to find a reliable teacher that focuses on Test Prep. Teachers need to be able to motivate and guide students to success. As an experienced Special Education Tutor, I can identify students’ problem areas and work with them in positive, constructive ways to achieve success. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities.
