ExperienceI have teaching certificates for both general elementary and special needs students. I have taught in New York's special educational program schools for several years. I am certified in crisis intervention. I have worked independently for math and reading enhancement. I also coordinate testing. I have tutored elementary math, English, writing, reading, and phonics. I have interned in a principal program for a year long study. I really like to concentrate tutoring on reading. There is a definite challenge to teach and tutor special needs students. I find that more than average patience and understanding given from the tutor is vital for any chance such students will have to achieve advancement. I have worked with students who have a host of severe disabilities, from emotional and intellectual to autism. I know that such pupils are harder to reach than the average student in a tutoring situation. Special techniques must be used just to hold their attention and interest. I feel that once the tutor gains the trust of such a student that a tremendously strong bond is established. Then learning may come quicker for them than even for a non-challenged individual. I know with my education and experience I could become a miracle worker tutor for many.
