I am a seasoned educator with over ten years of experience teaching, tutoring, and coaching. Over the past four years, I have had the opportunity to work at a private school that served twice-exceptional students. These students had some type of learning difference (ADHD, Dyslexia, High-Functioning Autistic) while also possessing gifted attributes. Above all, being compassionate and patient with these students fostered a positive environment that helped them achieve success for the year.
My experience is not limited to the classroom. For a year I tutored one-on-one with business executives in Paris. While the focus was conversational English, the practice of being compassionate and patient helped the executives build up not only their English skills but also their self-confidence.
My teaching has focused primarily on language arts, but I have also taught algebra, personal finance, and history.
