Academic tutoring by certified special education teacher near Fenton, MI for elementary and Junior high students in areas of math, reading, science, and social studies

Methodology

Certified teacher looking to provide tutoring for students (Kindergarten - 8th grade) in math, reading, science, and social studies. I use many different strategies when working with students because all students learn differently. I have used Wilson Reading, Orton-Gillingham, LLI, and ACRI as reading/phonics programs with success. I believe in hands-on learning whenever possible. The ultimate goal is for your student to be successful without support, and this can be accomplished by creating systems, routines that the student uses regularly in the classroom. I can be in contact with your child's teacher on a regular basis to assure we are all on the same page.
I am currently teaching 4 - 6 grade special education students in a push-in setting. I have 26 years teaching experience ranging from Pre-K to 7th grade. I live in Fenton, MI and I'm the
mom of 3 children (17, 19, and 23)
My degrees -
Bachelors degree in Elementary Education
Masters degree in Early Childhood Education (birth - 3rd grade)
Masters degree in Special Education - Learning Disabilities certification

Background

I have taught for 26 years. My first 7 years of teaching were in Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms. The next teaching experience I had was 8 years teaching 3, 4, 5, and 6 grade in the regular education classroom. I taught all subjects, but I also had the experience of teaming with other classrooms and only teaching the ELA and Social Studies portions of the curriculum. The last 11 years of teaching I've moved into a special education teacher role. I work with students in both small group and one-on-one settings. My students have had learning disabilities, cognitive impairments, social issues, and speech disabilities. I focus my instruction on 2 different areas. I want my students to make the very best progress they can in the regular curriculum, and I want them to work on skills that they are missing and need to become a better reader, writer, and math student. I also focus on my students becoming better advocates for themselves in the classroom setting, and test taking strategies.
