I love working with elementary and middle school age kids and have been a private tutor for the last eight years. I take pride in my ability to motivate and inspire young minds to get the most out of school and enjoy their time there. I employ a fun, yet firm, approach and will create or purchase any additional learning aids as needed. As good study habits are the key to success in school, I encourage my students to develop habits and routines that will serve them throughout life.
When I meet with you we'll discuss the educational challenges your child is experiencing, any IEPs in progress, and how we can achieve those goals. I offer a daily report for your review in which I list all assignments and any additional work we perform to achieve our educational goals.
ABA Therapist - If your child has some problem behaviors my best approach is to work with them incrementally, with modest goals initially, to achieve compliance in completing tasks. I increase demands as the child's cooperation improves. I employ the proven scientific principles of ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis). I recommend that you limit the amount of time spent on video games, particularly just prior to our sessions. You will see results in terms of better grades and enjoyment in learning. Several children I have worked with are now college bound! My goal is to make your child a life-long learner.
A little more about me:
I helped found and currently serve on the Board of Directors of an ABA school called The Mosaic School, located in Wantagh, NY. I ran a drop-in after school tutoring program in Port Washington, NY, at a local teen center.
Look at my 5-star reviews! You've tried the rest, now go with the best! Tess the Tutor!
