Hello and thank you for checking me out. I am a certified public school teacher in the State of New York and here in California I hold two CTE Certifications and am eligible for my Single Subject Credential in English; all grades. I am currently in the application process for this credential. I have a Master's Degree from New York University (3.9 gpa) in Educational Theatre; All Grades. This means I have been trained in the use of dramatic concepts to teach core subject areas, special education and literacy. I have a wide variety of experience as a Substitute Teacher in four districts in New York; all subjects, all grades. I also have considerable experience working with special education learners. I also have training and experience in the creation of lesson plans and curricula which makes me very qualified to create custom lessons/project to help the learners I work with to excel and ultimately reach academic goals. Let's see how I can help you!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I worked for over 5 years in the Nassau BOCES Special Education District in New York. This district served special education students at both the low and high ends. I worked with ADD/ADHD/Emotional & Physical Special Needs students. I can provide letters and evaluations from administrators.

Elementary (K-6th)

While living in New York where I hold a full Teaching Certification, I was a substitute teacher in 4 districts; all grades/all subjects. I was a favorite substitute teacher at Albany Avenue Elementary school. I can provide documentation as needed.

Phonics

I have taken a phonic approach with nearly all of the students I have tutored over the years. Once the rules of phonics are clearly understood, over 90% of the words in the English language can be spelled properly. I have compiled several books, charts and lessons focused on phonics development.

Reading

I have been in the theatrical profession for over twenty years. I have read and assisted others in reading many scripts over the course of my career. I can bring an interesting and fun edge to helping my students improve their reading skills.

Special Needs

I worked for over 5 years in the Nassau BOCES Special Education District in New York. This district served special education students at both the low and high ends. I worked with ADD/ADHD/Emotional & Physical Special Needs students. I can provide letters and evaluations from administrators.

Study Skills

When I started at LA Valley College way back in the early 1980's, I enrolled in a Study Skills class. I went on to achieve a 3.75 GPA while there, a 3.5 at California Institute of the Arts and a 3.9 at New York University. I have study skills that I learned and some that I developed. I have a strong record of academic achievement which cannot be attained without strong study skills.

Theatre

I have been active in the professional theatre world for over twenty years in California and New York. I am the Artistic Director at the Lyric Theater, and the Technical Director at Knightsbridge Theater. I have five Occupational Certifications in Theatre Arts, I have won awards and critical acclaim and am an inactive Equity member.
