My name is Sylviane. I am a licensed New York State elementary school teacher and have taught all subjects from kindergarten to fifth grade in New York City for many years. I have a masters degree in elementary science education and am a big proponent of hands-on activities. I recently retired from the New York City School system and moved to Florida. Teaching is my passion and I don't want to give it up. Tutoring appeals to me because it allows for a closer relationship with students and more insights in their learning process.
I am not only a teacher but also a mother of a dyslexic child and know from personal and professional experience the difficulties a child faces while overcoming reading problems as well as the difficulties parents face as they witness their child's frustration with reading. I am proud to report that my son graduated college. So I know there are happy endings.
Also, I recently received certification to teach ESL and specialized in coaching for the TOEFL. I tutored students in English before and decided to get certified in ESL. I come from an immigrant family and have seen my parents struggle with English and know the hurdles one must overcome to learn a new language during adulthood.
Compassion for your students and your discipline is crucial to be an efficient educator and I know I care.
