"Hello! My name is Brenda. I am an experienced educator and have a current professional level teacher certification in special education for K - 12th grades. As a requirement of the Maine certification, the State of Maine conducts background checks and indicates the status on the certification.

I follow this up by the use of strategies that break down learning tasks into smaller manageable pieces that are specific to a student's learning style and needs. My goal is for learning new things to become a chain of manageable confidence-building successes.

I then teach those skills to prepare for kindergarten entrance using developmentally appropriate practices that will appeal to preschoolers.
At the elementary level, I offer tutoring in language arts, including reading, writing, spelling, and vocabulary development; math," less...
