...One child was Autistic, one child was visually impaired and my other students had learning disabilities and were on ED PLANS. I worked closely with the Special Ed teachers and the Aides who worked with my students. I had to adapt my materials to accommodate my students' abilities and Ed plans.

...Beginner, intermediate, advanced, accelerated--you name it, and I've taught it. Do your eyes glaze over at the idea of declensions and conjugations? Can't tell an ablative absolute from a purpose clause?

...I identify the areas from previous subjects that they are not clear about and take the time to firm up those weak spots so they don't interfere with learning the new material. And moving forward, I help the student see the ideas in new ways, so that they can really master the subject and learn to figure out solutions on their own. I have studied and worked with math my entire life.

...I always track a student's progress based on what he or she hopes to accomplish. One way I do this is by going over old tests, making sure a student is proficient in the problems that are correct and helping in the areas where confusion still exists. My favorite part of teaching is when I am able to aid a student in grasping a challenging concept.

...Some students miss out on learning in school because they have their own troubles at home in life, or with specific teachers or teaching styles. And some subjects - such as Evolution - are simply not taught in all school systems. I use diagnostic probes to explore students' mathematical thinking and help to shore up their knowledge gaps.
