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

In 1992 I completed a college course at Bank Street College entitled, Learning Differences: ADHD. I worked with ADHD students in public and private schools throughout my 20 years as an educator. When completing my Masters degree in special education, my internship included work with children diagnosed with LD, ADHD, dyslexia, etc. I also attended several conferences geared to understanding the educational, social, and medical needs of children and adults with ADHD.

Reading

I have a Masters degree in reading and extensive experience teaching one-on-one and in small groups. I am also proficient in the administration of diagnostic reading tests at both the elementary and secondary school levels.

Study Skills

As a NYS certified reading and special education teacher and school guidance counselor, I have had many years of helping students improve their study skills. I have helped elementary through college-level students improve their strategies, primarily in the content areas.
Some of the topics I cover are as follows: the SQ3R Technique, Improving Time Management, Organization, & Listening Skills, and Effective Note Taking. Many students passed to the next grade, graduated from high school or obtained a college degree as a result of the instruction and guidance I provided.
