I am currently an after school program manager and an adjunct college professor at Bunker Hill Community College. My college background is in history/government/politics. I received my Bachelor's Degree in History from Boston University and my Master's Degree in History from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
My background in education came from working at an after school program as a tutor, enrichment teacher, and program manager. As a program manager I have to make sure that students from K-5 receive a strong foundation of learning through our literacy and math curricula. Both curricula incorporate the use of differentiation strategies to account for the different learning mechanisms that people demonstrate. Because of my background, I can tutor K-5 students in grammar, reading, vocabulary, and spelling. My college graduate background allows me to tutor older students in Algebra, History, Government/politics, and in the GRE, SAT, GED and TOEFL standardized tests.

I would create a plan of action for every person that I am tutoring. My hope is to create a comprehensive plan that enables the student to quickly understand and grasp strategies to help them master the material. I believe its critical that students feel confident that they can master the material. As with building a house, every tutor should help the student create a cornerstone for his/her foundation of learning. Once that is established, learning becomes much easier. I work to ensure the success of all my students.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to becoming your tutor.

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.

Algebra 1

I can help in quadratic equations, graphing lines, angle work, areas of two dimensional objects, functions, inequalities, polynomials, variables, and other areas of algebra. I will fashion a program around your learning.

American History

American History is not a very well-loved subject in high school or college. I would tutor in ways to make the history relevant to the students. My approach would be to demonstrate "why does history matter"? That approach would help students to understand and look at history differently. Also, I would help students in their writing and critical thinking of history to make them think about it. The process of thought makes it more interesting.

Elementary (K-6th)

You child needs help with their phonics, spelling skills, vocabulary, or grammar? I can help with the use of a particular curriculum similar to the one I use in my after school programs. It is guaranteed to increase your child's literacy skills. They can learn to read better, write better, and spell better. I will increase their vocabulary by 5 words a week.

SAT Math

I help in every area of math on the SAT. Geometry, algebra, and basic math concepts are features on the SAT. I will explain the area formulas and perimeter formulas of geometric shapes. I will explain the various strategies needed to successfully conquer this test. I will cover triangles, angles, circles, functions, ratios, data analysis, sequences, exponents, quadrilaterals, quadratic equations, etc. Every kind of problem on the SAT, I will cover.

SAT Reading

I will give either a math or reading or entire practice test to the pupil depending on his or her needs. Then I will analyze the data and determine his/her weaknesses and begin with them. I will create a comprehensive plan geared to show strategies and ways to conquer the particular aspects of the SAT that we are going to look at.
The schedule will be created to best maximize the pupil's time and comfort level.

When practicing the GRE sentence completion portion of the GRE, look at the sentence and read it through before selecting answers. There are always hints within a sentence that can steer you to an answer for each of the blanks. For instance, you look at moods and descriptive words that can serve as mile markers within the framework of the sentence. For example, The pompous student's lack... read more
