Experienced Teacher, Highly Qualified in Math and English

I am a special education teacher. I have been teaching students with all types of learning disabilities for many years. Students with dyslexia need reinforcement of sound-letter patterns and combinations. They often have strong comprehension skills, so context clues are a strong strategy for determining unknown words. They also struggle with spelling. When teaching these students, it is important to use positive reinforcement and encouragement, in order to keep them motivated. I have been teaching for over twenty years. I have worked with many diverse types of learners. I have a master's degre [more]

Highly Qualified Elementary Teacher and Orton Gillingham Certified

Adult & Childhood Tutoring of persons with/without disabilities

In June 1997 I received a certification in Applied Behavioral Therapy to be able to work with children having developmental disabilites i.e. Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Down's Syndrome and like disorders. The child that I had experience in tutoring was age 10 and it was evident that he was struggling with words as in his head he would view them in reverse. I wanted to help him to read out loud in his classes with confidence. I had him pick out a book that he had an interest in and had him read to me and when he come across a word that he struggled with I would have him sound it out and try to [more]
