I am a licensed elementary school teacher/assistant principal and daycare center director with over 30 years of experience. I value the importance of connecting with my students, getting to know and understand them, in addition to diagnosing their academic abilities. I know how to make learning interesting and fun. I employ an informal approach to help the student feel comfortable and motivated to improve. Every child is unique and being able to individualize and tailor lessons to best suit their specific learning style and personality leads to success.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Licensed New York Elementary School Teacher with over 30 years of experience. Also was a Daycare Center Director for one year. Had tutored elementary students for several years.

Phonics

I have over 30 years of experience teaching elementary school in New York. I was a classroom teacher for grades 4 and 5 and taught reading and used phonics for many students needing remedial instruction. As a daycare center director, I was involved in developing and enhancing reading instruction strategies and materials incorporating phonics. In providing private reading tutoring, I find that lower grade and remedial students benefit greatly from phonics.

Study Skills

With over 30 years of experience as a New York elementary school classroom teacher, I have helped students to develop their study skills. Using flash cards, index cards or just writing notes, I have helped students to improve their memory and understanding of many subjects. I also find pictures and diagrams to be very effective, since most students are "visual" learners.
