Hi there, I am Faith, a State Certified School Counselor. I was a Substitute Teacher for the Board of Education for two years. Nowadays, I enjoy educating emerging/early learners from K-3 grade. I also work with adult students who need to improve their basic skills in order to perform better on their jobs. I enjoy teaching English, Reading, Proofreading, Grammar, Vocabulary, and Literature. It's important for me to begin working with students’ from their present educational level and gradually guide them to complete more difficult work.
One of my main goals is for students’ to become independent learners. As an educator, I believe it is necessary to help students learn how to learn. I explain the importance of self-monitoring, test preparation, and study skills. They will need to be aware of their academic strengths and weaknesses. At the same time, being an independent learner increases their self-confidence and motivation.
Informal assessments help me determine my students’ primary and secondary learning styles. Once students’ learning styles are determined I demonstrate specific study skills tailored for each student. I encourage potential students and their parents to have a discussion with me before our first tutoring session. It helps me determine whether I would be a good match to work with a prospective student.
I have a Master's of Science in Education degree (M.S. Ed) in Guidance and Counseling
from Hunter College of the City University of New York. I have a great deal of experience counseling students in high school and college. I focus on career exploration for high school students. My main concern with parents is helping them avoid accruing large amounts of debt from loans to cover their children's tuition costs. In addition, career development for college students is crucial to preparing them for the world of work.
I was a substitute teacher for the Board of Education for two years. I taught K-6th grade students in several public schools in the tri-state area. I have an M.S. Ed in Guidance & Counseling from Hunter College. In addition, I have 24 education credits. I have passed the LAST as well as the ATS-W teacher examinations. I am approved by the State Dept of Education to work as a Teaching Assistant. Currently, I am in the process of preparing for my initial teaching certificate in Early Childhood Development.
5 stars! — My daughter received her 1st progress report from school (pre-report card) and she ranked highly proficient (95-100) in all subjects. I should have looked into getting her a tutor a long time ago. ...
