I have extensive experience as a tutor in New York City, working one-on-one with students at the elementary, middle school, and high school level. I am a product of the New York City school system, and as a Stuyvesant High School alumn, am very familiar with this city's testing systems.

I've worked with many of my students for years, and have been able to see improvements not only in their grades, but also in how they approach their work. I've also noticed how my students have gotten more skilled at evaluating the quality of work they produce, especially their writing assignments.

I believe all students have the capacity to learn, but all students learn in different ways. I always tailor my lessons to each student's individual learning style. Depending on the student, sometimes this means having students go through a more traditional cycle of mini lessons and practice questions, while other times this involves a student acting out vocabulary words to help with memorization. Each student is different, and so too, are the lessons I provide them.

In addition to subject-specific experience in high school writing and literature, and elementary and middle school math, reading, social studies, science, and Spanish I also help students improve their organizational and study skills.

I am a writer, and my published work includes two non-fiction young adult books. This helps me understand how my students think and learn, and also allows me to help them improve their writing skills. I help students proofread and edit their work, teach them how to structure their essays, and help them learn how to understand and respond to the specific requirements of their writing assignments.

I keep my lessons lighthearted, entertaining, but also focused. I hold my students to high expectations, and never allow them to give up on themselves as they work to master their lessons.

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 have tutored elementary-level students for four years, in different grades. I have worked with some students on individual subjects (math, reading, writing). With other students, I have offered homework help, test prep, and review for all subjects.

Elementary Math

I have tutored math at the elementary level for the past four years. I am extremely patient when reviewing and introducing mathematical concepts, since I know this subject tends to overwhelm many students. I seek to break down concepts into a series of simple steps, making sure my students understand the steps individually and as a complete process that will allow them to tackle any problem. In addition to homework help and lesson review, I have also worked with students on standardized test prep, including last year's new standardized exams.

English

Having written young adult non-fiction, I understand how my students comprehend written texts. I help them tackle the content they are reading, as well as assist them in the work of analyzing a text beyond superficial comprehension. I like to start by going through the thought process that goes into analyzing work, and help them get there by asking my students exploratory questions about the work.

Spanish

I took nine years of Spanish, including both levels of AP Spanish and two years of advanced level Spanish in college.

I like showing students the patterns in the language, how to make sense of the parts of a sentence as a kind of code, and then teach them how to decode.

Writing

I have worked with students on all types of writing projects, including: essays; book reports; poetry; creative writing; and research papers.

I like to help my students preserve their own unique voice while teaching them how to proofread, fix grammatical errors, and make sure their essays and stories makes sense, paragraph by paragraph, and as a whole.

Last year, for example, I worked with two of my regular students, who attend the same school, on a school-wide essay contest. Both of their essays were chosen as the class winners.
