I've worked in Special Education for over 7 years. I tutored college level courses and taught independent living skills to college students with special needs (mostly autistic spectrum disorders) for 6 years before becoming a middle and high school teacher for students with unique emotional needs for two years. These experiences have allowed me to develop the skill to accurately assess a student's comprehension of a subject and then provide instruction using strategies for multiple intelligences in a approachable manner.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I start with a focus on vocabulary.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I typically spend my first session building rapport with my student while learning about their specific needs in the subject.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

While tutoring, I not only focus on the content, but instruct and assess strategies for studying independently.
