Study Skills

I have a master's degree in education (K-6) and 12 years classroom teaching experience. Before I could assign homework or tests, I had to teach my students study skills so they could be successful. When I tutor, study skills and organization are typically interwoven into my lessons.

For four years I've been tutoring elementary students including those with special needs such as ADHD and those on the autism spectrum, including Asperger's. This requires great patience, the willingness to corroborate with others, and knowledge of differentiated instruction.

I corroborate with students' teachers to ensure that classroom lessons are reinforced and extended. I also supply materials that are aligned with the Common Core.
