Phonics

I have been teaching and co-teaching phonics to students in the high school setting for nine years. I have a Master's in Teaching, and in my program, I studied phonemic awareness so I could help special needs students. I teach English to non-native speakers, and have done so since 2001. I have taught Phonics to student on my EC caseload to help them make progress on their IEP goals.


Study Skills

I can work with people of all ages and learning abilities and target what they need to do to help them master and retain learning content. I can show and teach different ways to retain knowledge, including use of mnemonics, pictures, application, language, repetition, and tactics to decrease anxiety. I can also work with psychological blocks in maintaining content knowledge and/or in test-tasking strategies. I can teach ways to keep records of assignments, deadlines, goals, and personal files. I have been trained by many ways: graduate school in special education, on-the-job by working with students who struggle of all ages for over 10 years, and as a person myself who struggles with study skills - I found many creative ways to overcome and get straight A's in college and graduate school.
