"I have worked in residential, vocational and school settings with children age 5-22 with a wide variety of disabilities. I am certified as a teacher of students with severe disabilities and a teacher of the deaf blind in Massachusetts. I have taught in private, collaborative, and public school settings. My primary teaching experience is with middle and high school students, focused on making the grade level curriculum accessible through early reading, communication, and life skills instruction. I have also tutored general elementary students and assisted college students with understanding and successfully creating assignments.

I am endorsed in Sheltered English Immersion (SEI, also called RETELL) and have experience teaching in a bilingual format. I speak Spanish and during the pandemic, I was able to collaborate with parents who do not speak English to facilitate their ability to assist their student to participate in instructional activities.

Parents consistently tell me that I was “that teacher” - the one who understood their child. I have extensive experience teaching students who use alternative methods of communication (AAC) including low and high tech systems. I also have developed grade level adapted curriculum to facilitate students who are just learning to use their communication devices.

I hope you will consider me as the tutor your child needs. I left the schools partly due to my own health, but mostly due to my frustration with a system that could not adapt to the unique needs of students whose brains are simply wired differently. Contact me and lets see if this is a good match for you or your child." less...
