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.

ADD/ADHD

I have had a lot of experience working with children with ADD/ADD. I know many strategies to help these students become successful in the school and home environment.

Autism

I have worked with children with autism for many years. Currently, I have many students on my caseload with autism and help them with their speech/language skills. In particular, pragmatics and expressive language are a main concern for these children.

Elementary (K-6th)

My experience in an elementary school consists of student teaching in 2 elementary schools as speech therapist. One was in Ithaca, NY and the other in Glen Head, NY. Currently, I am a speech therapist working in an elementary school in Brooklyn. I have worked with students in K-6th grade and address speech/language and subject areas of difficulty. I work on curriculum based goals and have consulted with administration as well as classroom teachers to help the student become successful.

Phonics

Phonics or phonemic awareness is one of my specialties. As a speech therapist, the students I work with often demonstrate difficulties in this area. It is critical for kindergartners and 1st graders to master this skill in order to be good readers. It includes sound:letter correspondence, rhyming, segmenting and blending.

Special Needs

I have worked with children with special needs for almost ten years. The different disabilities include autism, PDD, learning disabilities, ADHD, ADD, emotional disturbance, rare disorders, speech language disabilities, and cerebral palsy.
