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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was the head teacher of an after school program for elementary school children ages 5-12 for two consecutive summers. One of my major tasks was tutoring children with their homework. I worked with a variety of different children, and tutored them in subjects such as English, Science, and Math.

My approach is gentle yet firm. Because each child learns differently, I create a curriculum based on the specific needs and the learning style(s) that work best for that child, in the hopes of developing a productive yet fun environment for learning.

Farsi

I am half Iranian and grew up speaking Farsi to my mother at home. In addition, I have a minor in Middle Eastern studies from New York University, and I spent four years studying reading, writing and pronunciation of the language.

Flute

Graduated from NYU with an M.A. in Flute Performance. Former adjunct professor of flute at NYU with years of teaching experience, offering private flute lessons for students of all ages and levels. Throughout your lessons you will learn all the fundamentals that will make you a strong, great musician. These will include a strong understanding of musicianship, tone quality, different techniques, and sight reading.

General Computer

I have experience using and teaching both Macs and PCs. I can teach you how to type efficiently, access your system settings, and use Microsoft Word and Excel, among other skills necessary to use your computer on a day-to-day basis. Once an assessment of your skills has been made, I will create a curriculum specific to you and your needs, to get you up to speed with the latest technology.

Salsa Dancing

I have over 6 years of dance experience and have taught and danced with prestigious dance schools in New York City. My dance partner and I currently own a dance school where we teach classes almost every day of the week. We also train a student team and choreograph/perform our own professional routines as well. We are available for private lessons.
