Reading and English certified teacher with 23 years experience working with students with special needs.

Methodology

My teaching method is to find a way in to the subject that is interesting to each student I teach. I use a variety of teaching techniques until I find the one that works the best with each individual student.

Background

I have a BA in English and my Master's in Reading education. I taught special education for seven years. I am experienced in working with students who have ADD and ADHD as well as autism and OCD. My strengths are in writing especially research and term papers.
