I am a retired New York State secondary school teacher. I taught in a large school district in Central New York and my absolute favorite subject was Global History and Geography 9-10. I also taught middle school American history and government. I was a Fulbright Teacher in Europe, teaching English as a Second Language and European history in Hungary.

I have taught students of all levels and abilities and I really love getting content and skills across through multiple approaches. I have developed successful strategies for writing research papers, document based essays and thematic essays.

I have recently visited India twice and completed my CELTA in Budapest. This is an amazing intense program for training teachers to teach ESL students.

I also enjoy creative writing and blogging, editing papers and working with dog rescue.

I want YOU to be completely satisfied with my tutoring, and while I have high expectations, I am patient and willing to do whatever is needed to make YOU, the student, a success.

I can meet with you anywhere from Ithaca to Cortland.

I love helping to improve English as well as attain success in other subjects like social studies.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

Social Studies

I have a BA in international studies (including classes in international law, regional studies, culture, political science, psych, history) and a master's in secondary social studies education. I taught social studies for 26 years.

I tutored New York State Regents exams in global history and geography and have lots of materials in this area, as well as government, American history, and culture.
