I am a fourth year Special Education Teacher with a Master's in Special Education Instruction. I have worked with both general education students, and special education students with mild to moderate disabilities. I also have experiencing working with students in the "middle" who need academic intervention in phonics, reading comprehension, math calculation or problem solving, and writing. I have helped students fill academic holes that they may have due to poor school experiences, or due to never receiving enough one on one instruction to catch up to their peers. While I have worked with students up to grade 11, my specialty is helping kids in grades K-8 to build the skills they need to be successful in high school and beyond. I am upbeat and patient, but also rigorous in my instruction. I focus on conceptual understanding, and I can relate to any student's specific learning style. I also provide study skills and organization help to improve academic independence in students.
