I have worked as a tutor for 17 years. I am able to tutor all elementary level subjects. I also tutor Algebra, Geometry, English [Language Arts], Writing and Study Skills. I have worked seven years with special needs students and I am knowledgeable of diverse teaching methods and use this knowledge to differentiate my instruction to meet each student's individual need.

My philosophy is to facilitate student learning by using a progressive questioning method where the student explains what he does know and then building from there, each time questioning for comprehension. This enhances not only comprehension but also communication and critical thinking skills.
