Elementary Education and Middle School Language Arts Tutor

I have worked with students with Dyslexia before in my teaching experience. Hello there! Here is a little bit about myself: My goal is to inspire students to learn in a positive environment by making subjects practical and relatable to their everyday lives. Watching students grow and learn is my passion. Seeing that "lightbulb" moment makes every struggle worth it. I would love to help you or your child experience success. I encourage creativity and love to do things that are different and exciting. I tutor through hands-on experiences, not just a paper and pencil. ... [more]

Retired Learning Disabilities Teacher

I am currently certified as a special educator for children/youth with learning disabilities in New York and Utah. Almost all of my teaching experiences have been with children struggling with learning to read. Because of my early training in learning disabilities, I look first for a student's learning strengths, then whatever issues may be holding him/her back from succeeding. As a hands-on learner I struggled learning to read trying to memorize words visually and orally in elementary school. Consequently, when a child can't read, I will look to understand why and teach to that child's streng [more]

Versatile Tutor with Experience

Working as a private tutor, I have gained experience with several students diagnosed with dyslexia. Because of the unique frustrations that come with this diagnosis, I have become adept at reducing students' worries and helping them become more confident and independent in their learning abilities. I have also done well with encouraging students to take advantage of accommodations to help ease the issues involved in having dyslexia. I am a current second year PhD student in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Missouri. I obtained my Master of Arts degree in November 2017 in Cl [more]

Creative and Innovative Tutor Available for All Ages and Abilities

For eight years I taught students with all types of learning disabilities, including dyslexia. Yearly reviews of what it was like to be a student with dyslexia resulted in my continuous search for resources that would allow students to focus on a word or a line instead of being overwhelmed by an entire page of print. Because of my double major of Elementary Education and Special Education I am also familiar and experienced with techniques such as Orton-Gillingham. Having taught reading and special education for eight years, I feel strongly about incorporating a student's interests and streng [more]

PreK - Elementary Reading, Math, Handwriting, Study Skills

I taught in a Reading Clinic, a group of sixth graders who read at a second grade level. I found books that met both their interest level and reading level. I planned lessons that activated their various sensory avenues and was very successful. I have also learned how to use Brain Gym to activate both sides of the brain. They are very simple exercises and take very little time to do, such as Lazy 8's, cross crawl, Brain Buttons, and so forth. I also utilize the Learning Breakthrough Program from Balametrics, Inc. and have a CD and instructional booklet for "Catch a Brain Wave Fitness Fun. [more]
