I am a graduate of The College of Staten Island in New York, where I obtained a bachelor's degree in business and a master's degree in education (K-Gr.8). Due to the fact that I am have always been passionate about educating myself and others, I then obtained an advance certificate in school administration, and I am presently working on my doctorate with The University of Phoenix.
I have worked for the New York school system for over 18 years, and have extensive experience as an administrator (Ass't. Principal), certified teacher, reading coach, and tutor for grades 2 through 8th. My favorite subjects are math, language arts, reading/writing, and special education. I use creative yet systematic approaches to teaching students. I make learning fun and have a great way of helping my students understand the concepts. My philosophy is that everyone can learn, it's just a matter of finding the right approach to connect with that person. I am persistent and passionate about learning, and therefore "success" is my only option in education.
My regular hourly rate will be $60.00, and I ask that you inform me if possible, with a 24hr notice if you wish to cancel a tutoring session, if not, you will still be responsible to pay for the session once I arrive at the home and my student is not there. I am usually flexible as life is full of surprises, so we can always reschedule in advance if such a moment arises. I have no problem with doing home visits, I only ask that you have a designated area where we can work without too many interruptions. Although I have a clear background check, due to fact that some of my students are minors, I strictly enforce that a parent/adult be present for the entire hour during the tutoring session. I look forward to having productive tutoring sessions with all potentional students in the future.
I am a state certified teacher for teaching students with ADD/ADHD for many years. My expertise lies with students from elementary and middle schools. I am presently teaching a student with ADD, and he is responding well to tutoring. My teaching strategy is simple, I do not teach them as though they were different, I just spend extra time on the areas they are having difficulty with. My philosophy is simple, I believe every child can learn, maybe not at the same pace, but they can once the educator finds a unique strategy/learning style that works for each student.
I am state certified for many years in special education for teaching students who are having problems with reading. I have the experience tutoring children with dyslexia, actually I am tutoring one now with those types of problems. My tutoring experiences include regular and special education. In addition, I was a literacy coach for the John Hopkins "Success For All" Reading Program for elementary through 8th grade.
I am a state certified teacher in elementary education. I have years of experience in teaching and tutoring. I taught sixth, seventh, and eighth grade for many years. I am a reading coach for students of that age and higher.
As a literacy coach for John Hopkins literacy program called "Success For All", I have the experience needed to teach phonics. This is the basic skill in order to read and sound out words. Phonics was an important part of this program, and I was trained for it. It was my job to train the teachers to ensure they were administering the program correctly. I accomplished this by doing demo lessons, conducting observations and providing workshops.
