Have Tutor Will Teach was formed in April, 2000; to meet the needs of students in the Tri-County area, Digby, Shelburne, and Yarmouth. I am located at 4217 Hwy. 340 in Carleton. I have provided services for Family and Children’s Services in Yarmouth, Tri-County Regional School Board, Mi’K Maq Family and Children’s Services, Yacro in Yarmouth, Worker’s Compensation, Crawford Healthcare, English as a Second Language in Port Maitland Consolidated School, and Family Literacy Program in Yarmouth.
My experience includes twenty-two years as a tutor, three years as a full-time high school English teacher, twenty years as a substitute teacher, and home-schooled my brain-injured son. I have taught or tutored all subjects through grade ten, with the exception of French. I have an Associate of Arts degree in Family Studies, Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics, and a Master’s degree in Education with a concentration in Educational Therapy. My minors are Psychology and Sociology. I have taken courses and seminars dealing with special needs students. I am a Professionally Certified Educational Therapist through NILD Canada and a Certified Dyslexia Therapist through International Dyslexia Association.
Have Tutor Will Teach works with a wide variety of students. I have worked with many special needs students including autistic, Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, Global Development Delay, and behaviourally challenged. I have worked with parents and their children on dietary issues that affect learning and behaviour. I have worked with pre-school through university students, ESL, and GED. My typical method is to work one-on-one, but on rare occasions I work with groups of two or three. As an Educational Therapist I have worked with stroke and heart attack patients and people of all ages who have had Acquired Traumatic Brain Injuries and brain surgeries for tumours, cancer, and epilepsy. As a Certified Dyslexia Therapist I have worked with young students and older individuals for dyslexia ranging from mild to severe cases.
My fourteen-by-fourteen foot, easy-access classroom is equipped with manipulatives, educational games, hands-on-learning tools, reading books for all levels and difficulties, textbooks, and resource materials.
