Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Cooking

When I step into my kitchen I forget all my problems. I relax while I cook no matter how tired I am. Cooking is my passion, I enjoy it as much as I enjoy teaching. I love to host dinners and cook delicious dishes from around the world. I have tons of my own recipes and easy step-by-step directions for those who want to cook.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher. I work privately with students of all ages and grades as well as teach full time during the school year. I have a lot of materials and experience to teach K-6th grades. My approach to teaching math is through games and as well as books and many online materials and resources. For reading, writing, and literacy I have also prepared activities that engage students and teach them the material they need to know in order excel at school and in the future. My writing students make transition from paragraph writing into essay writing after 4-5 lessons. I cover grammar, sentence structure, importance of organization of thought and everything in between. My students especially enjoy the topics I assign for Creative Writing and Literature Discussion.

While Studying my students don't only learn school basics but also how to communicate with others and express their feelings and opinions in a educated and civil manner.

ISEE

I have been teaching and tutoring for The Independent School Entrance Examination--ISEE for nearly 5 years. I have experience both in the Upper and the Lower levels of the exam. I teach all the sections: comprehension, writing, logical thinking and reasoning as well as the math sections. My students have gotten into the schools of their choices and have many success stories to share.

Phonics

I am a reading specialist and coach here to help your child learn how to read and eliminate frustration that dyslexia can cause in children. I am trained in reading instruction through phonics and whole language approach. Get your child the help they need now, don’t wait! Early intervention is proven to eliminate dyslexia in young children and rid them from frustration they might have due to reading problems.

Regents

I'm a classroom History teacher, and 99% of my students successfully passed their NYS History Regents exams with high marks. I enjoy teaching and waking up every single morning to go to work. Not only do I teach History, but I also teach test taking skills, to give my students a boost of confidence and energy.

Social Studies

I'm a Certified New York State Social Studies teacher. I teach 9-12th grades.

Turkish

I am a fluent speaker of the Turkish language. I have been learning it for the last 15 years and I communicate fluently with the natives of the country. I am proficient in reading, writing, grammar and speaking. I practice the language daily, translate text and watch Turkish television in order to improve and maintain my language skills.
