Reading should be fun and an adventure!

I was awarded a M.Ed., Reading from Northeastern University in 1977. Part of the coursework included learning about an assortment of Special Needs and methods to assist the student in learning and/or compensating for these needs. Since then I have worked successfully with a number of students (grades 2 - 12) with this diagnosis, as many students listed with Dyslexia have an underlying learning need. Also, I continue to read articles and attend workshops on this topic as available. I am passionate about helping children achieve success in reading. Reading is the fundamental skill needed for a [more]

Specialize in prealgebra, algebra 1 & 2 and all subject K - 12

I work with children with special needs in my current position as a child and family therapist. I also hold a master's in psychology and a master's in social work. I have been working with students with special needs in other entities for the past 5 years. I believe every student has the potential to excel in academics, once the child's learning style is identified. As a tutor, my unique approach lies in the ability to dissect key concepts so students can first grasp the fundamentals on which they will successfully build the skills necessary to master the subjects they struggle with.

I Use a Teaching Method That Helps All Students Learn.

The topic I chose for my M.Ed. was a study of the relative success of advanced-track students and lower-achieving students (now called special needs) in middle school. When I taught high school in NYC, I spent a full year teaching classes of special needs students with no assistant. More recently, I taught ICT/CCT classes, again single-handedly for the first semester. Last year I tutored a 5th grade special needs student who had big problems with math, and she came to not only like it, but to excel at it. I've worked with and been dedicated to helping special needs students throughout my caree [more]
