My professional experience includes both public & private education in NY, VA, & FL. I have taught mathematics, science & language arts/English in all K-12 grades for over twenty years.
You will find that I use a variety of learning strategies, have a positive attitude, and am completely dependable. I establish teaching/tutoring relationships easily and help students overcome learning obstacles. I always make the best use of tutoring time and set reasonable/attainable teaching goals.
I have taught all high school core subjects in a self-contained classroom for students with learning issues such as Asperger's, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, and audio/visual tracking difficulties. My other special needs teaching has included math, science, and language arts for students in grades 3-8, both self-contained and mainstreamed. I have studied and developed many successful strategies over more than ten years to assist students with learning differences. My ability to divide learning into manageable chunks with the use of color coding and manipulatives helps students see concepts more clearly. Students naturally benefit from visual, hands-on instruction which is not only easier-to-learn, but also aids in learning retention.
