...I taught high school math for 10 years. The courses I taught are: Pre-Algebra Algebra 1 & 2 Geometry Trigonometry Pre-Calculus Though I'm available on short notice I do ask for a 3 hour notice for cancellations and offer makeup sessions. I also offer online tutoring if we're not able to meet in person and have tutored clients online from New York to California.

...But once phonetic decoding and reading fluency (without "word-guessing") is well mastered, basic comprehension skills are likely to improve as well. Learning to focus on the main idea of any selected reading passage is a good start. Making quick mental notes of sequence of events is also very important.

I have a masters degree in Special Education and have worked as a special education teacher for five years. In this capacity I have worked with students with attentional difficulties in pullout and inclusion classes.

...As a child with ADHD, it meant allowing myself to get creative about expository writing. Asking questions that led off topic and having teachers who wanted to answer them anyway. Thinking about connections instead of just taking the buckets.

...Mathematics is a very complex subject to teach, so it must be taught with precision, and I explain it to students at their learning capacity. Mathematics cannot be taught at a fast pace, because, if you do, you've lost your students in the first five minutes. If there's something that students do not understand, reteach it; there's nothing wrong with going over certain parts of the lesson.
