Elementary (K-6th)

For 19 years, I've taught at the elementary school level including all grade levels from K-6. For 2 of those years, I was a Math Specialist for the New York City Department Of Education. I currently hold a Clear Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from the state of California and have CLAD/CTEL Certification (California Teachers of English Learners Certificate). As a classroom teacher, I offered an integrated program that focused on higher order thinking skills and was both interactive and experiential. I offered open-ended lessons where each student could access the information and achieve to the highest level that they were capable of. Bilingual and multicultural materials were used to both empower and broaden the horizons of my students. I also specialized in incorporating music and art into my Writing program. This aided in stimulating the student's auditory and visual senses which enhanced their ability and motivation to write. My Reading program incorporated literature circles and focused on both basic decoding skills and phonemic awareness for beginning readers as well as comprehension aided by using strategies such as context clues, inference, and prediction. For Math, I combined constructivist theory with the use of manipulatives to ensure conceptual understanding and problem solving capabilities. Overall, my program was guided by my belief that curriculum could be both standards based and creative. Outside of the classroom, I offered workshops for parents and staff development for teachers in Math instruction. I also served on several School Site Councils and was a member of the Student Study Team-a collaboration between teachers, support staff and parents to support students with special needs. Since leaving the classroom in 2009, I've been an independent tutor and recently joined WyzAnt.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
