To: Students and Parents,

I have experience tutoring students in Reading, Writing, Math, Science and History. In addition, I have tutored students in Microsoft Office software (Word, Excel and PowerPoint). I am very patient, educated and want to help students. My background includes helping students in elementary through high school grades. Also, I have tutored students in college who need help in Writing. Besides youth, I have taught adults English (Reading and Writing).

For example, the father of one of the students I tutored in Math called me to help his daughter prepare for her Biology Regents. As a result of my work, the daughter passed her Regents Exam. In addition, the mother of one of the students I helped in writing mentioned she would request the tutoring company to send me if her son needed help in the future.

My education includes a BA from Barnard College/Columbia University in Environmental Science. In addition, I completed my Master's in Urban Policy Analysis & Management. I was born and raised in New York, and get along well with individuals from varying backgrounds. My language skills include proficiency in English, intermediate Spanish, and knowledge of Hindi and Marathi. One of the mothers wanted a tutor to help her son with his Spanish class, and I utilized my Spanish knowledge to review speaking and reading skills. His mother told me that because of my tutoring, her son improved in his Spanish class.

I look forward to working with you!

Regards,
Amita

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.

Career Development

I have reviewed resumes as part of my job, and provided suggestions to the candidates. For example, I advised them to include relevant information to the position that would demonstrate their interest/experience. I also provide them with vocabulary that will strengthen their resume.

College Counseling

I have completed my Bachelor's and Master's from accredited schools, and am qualified to provide College Counseling. For example, I have provided direction to students based on their interests and capability. I have knowledge of college programs, and can provide student's with the information they need.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BA from Barnard College/Columbia University in Environmental Science. In addition, I completed my Master's in Urban Policy Analysis & Management. I have successfully tutored students in Elementary (K-6) by working with them on their homework and reviewing for their end of the academic year exams. I made sure they were proficient in Reading, Writing and Math. For example, I had a student who needed help in writing, and I practiced writing skills with her to make sure she improved.

Their parents told me that their children were doing better in school as a result of my tutoring. For example, one mother told me her son improved in his studies due to my work with him. Furthermore, one mother saw that her son's writing had improved, after helping him. The mother mentioned that she would request the tutoring company send me if he needed further help in his studies.

Microsoft Windows

I have used Microsoft Windows for 15 years to complete school and work projects. In addition, I have tutored students in Microsoft Windows. As a result, they have become more proficient in Microsoft Windows.

Public Speaking

I am qualified to tutor in Public Speaking because I have made oral presentations for work. For example, I presented a workshop at a conference held at Pace University. In addition, I orally presented material to Program Directors and Managers at meetings. I am a native English speaker, and have completed my BA and MS at Barnard College/Columbia University, and The New School for Public Engagement.

Regents

While in school, I received successful grades in all of the Regents exams. I have also tutored students to prepare for the Regents, and they did well. The students were able to succeed in their Regents exams because I provided them test taking techniques, and educated the students on the content because of my education.

Social Studies

I have tutored students in Social Studies from elementary to high school level. As a result of my tutoring, the students were able to understand the material better.

My background in Social Studies includes courses taken in elementary, middle and high school. In addition, I took courses in Social Studies in college.

For example, I am knowledgeable in geography, government and history.

Study Skills

Based on my education and experience, I have provided students with study skills to improve their grades. For example, I suggest time allocation on questions. Also, I advise students to skim through questions on a reading passage, so they know what to look for when they are reading the material. In addition, if they are unsure of a question, I tell them to try to decide which answers are incorrect in a multiple choice question.
