Let me help your children do better in school.

I have a BA in Philosophy from New York University and a MS in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mercy College, Dobbs Ferry, NY. I have been tutoring students since I went to college.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist I have learned that every couple, family and individual is unique and I transfer that philosophy to my tutoring. Each student is unique and the needs of each student are different. One of the first things I do in an initial tutoring session is to make a determination as to why this unique student is having trouble.

I work with students one-on-one in a patient and understanding manner so that students learn the material with ease. I make learning fun as well. I make the students do several examples to reinforce the concept, especially in mathematics.

I tailor my tutoring methodology to the individual.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
