Do you get anxious, fearful, frustrated, and overwhelmed when you have to learn or study? I can help you become self-confident and knowledgeable. I use brain research to give you tricks for learning and remembering. I will teach you in any of the following: K-9 math, reading, vocabulary, grammar, reasoning, and emotional development. You will use your visual, auditory, tactile, and kinesthetic senses and I will help you connect what you previously learned to new skills. This makes the knowledge stick like glue so you will be able to use what you learned to improve your scores on tests, explain how you get solutions to problems, and learn higher level content more easily.
How did I get my skills? Before retiring and becoming an independent contractor, I was trained in techniques for teaching gifted students as well as remedial students. I also studied brain research and did extensive reading on cognition and emotional intelligence.
I began my career teaching reading and mathematics to gifted and remedial students throughout Grades K-6. I became a staff developer and trained grades K-12 teachers in instructional strategies for improving children's ability to learn. Subsequently, I took more courses and workshops, got another two degrees, and became a Supervisor of educational planning. I restructured education programs in schools and districts throughout NY City and State. Students in these initiatives improved significantly in their performance over those not involved in these programs.
I am currently an adjunct professor, teaching math courses in Garden City, NY during the summer and fall school terms. I have a consulting business too, where I focus on teaching skills in self-control, overcoming obstacles, coping, stress management, and organization to improve learning and well-being for children and adults.
I am available in South Florida during the months of January through April and in and near Long Beach, New York from June through December.
I look forward to meeting and working with you. I can assure you it will be an enjoyable and immediately useful experience!
