FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to identify the students learning style. I have students take a brief survey to help determine if they are visual, audio, or kinetic learners. Most people use all learning styles interchangeably.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a masters degree in Education and Autism. I am a certified Texas teacher for grades Early childhood to 6th grade.  I am also certified as a Special Education teacher for grades Early Childhood to 12th.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Private lessons are $15 per hour. Small group ( 2-4 students) $10 per hour per child.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching while in high school. I tutored my peers in reading and writing. I loved helping students " see" solutions in a different way. 5 years ago I decided to teach in the classroom.


What types of students have you worked with?

In the last 5 years I haved worked with students age 3 to 13, including students with intellectual disabilities, autism, down syndrome, dyslexia, and ADHD/ADD.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently during a session I was in competition with my studenrs to use all strategies and solve a question quickly. Halfway through my problem I heard one student say "Mrs. Young all you had you do was estimate, work smarter not harder." It was beautiful because she was able to be the teacher and remind me to don't over think.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find out if the teacher is familiar with the standards and expectations of your state and school district. While math is universal, the methods can vary by grade level in different areas.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should think about what they do know before talking with teachers. This will help the teacher understand where to start during instruction. A student that understands multiplication but not division does not need instruction on addition but may need help understanding division is repeat subtraction. Analyzing ones own abilities can assist with setting learning goals.
