TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a Learning Specialist and Cognitive Developer working to assist students of all ages through difficult areas of education. My work has been tried with students and then modified as I see their response to worksheets, short stories, etc. during the last 22 years (since 1992). While I work individually on a tutorial basis or small groups, my graphics and content is aimed at simplifying concepts to best transfer learning for all students. My Master's degree in psychology is used to observe and discover ways in which students learn easiest, and find my graphics both helpful and motivational.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a Learning Specialist I work with students who have special needs (both behaviorally and cognitively). I develop worksheets in sequences to build upon concepts. These worksheets are placed in binders which I give students for their own satisfaction to see progress as well as to be used as a reference tool in future years. I apply visually attractive graphics on nearly all worksheets, short stories, practice quiz/tests, etc. that I can to maintain interest. My close attention to detail (with both students and my curriculum) is important to me for quality production and success.
