...I am currently working with special needs students at Highland Park High School. I'm a teacher assistant in a program within the school of about 25 students, many of whom have autism, learning disabilities, or Down Syndrome. Whatever each one's particular situation and level of functioning may be, I have really enjoyed working with them and helping them succeed.

...My approach is simple: adaptive teaching. As learners, we all have a unique learning style, and we learn best when concepts are provided in a way that best fits that style. I work with each of my students to identify what their learning style is and help them to understand it for themselves.

...I also provide enough practice problems for them to improve their skills. I make sure I understand the need of the students and help them with patience. This way I create an environment where learning math becomes fun and productive.

...Working with special education students over the years, that was one of our major issues: how to study. So, the experience I have is very diverse from 1st grade through College students. We can work on developing a time management system to help with the studying that has to take place in your life.

...I feel that I am a very patient tutor, and can greatly help children learn material that they are struggling in. I do not give them the answers, but rather push them in the right direction, and make sure that it sticks with follow-up questions. I am also a fun person that can make learning enjoyable for anyone, usually through metaphors that will resonate with children.
