I've worked with students with special needs, general education students from 4 years of age and up, as well as adults. I love working with children and get along well with people of all ages. I've worked with students, and parents, to improve their reading, writing, spelling, and math, as well as their knowledge and understanding of science and higher level subjects.

I've worked as an assistant, teacher and tutor, and know how important it is to help people meet their goals and to provide encouragement and support as they learn. I have been able to help, in one way or another, every person that I have worked with, because I focus on his/her needs, set a goal and teach my "student" how to achieve that goal. I also enjoy helping my students realize how much they can accomplish and seeing the difference in their behaviors and attitudes when they realize how much they've learned and how far they've come.

I know that for all of our similarities, every person is different, which often means that how one person learns is different from other people's. I don't believe in a "cookie-cutter" approach, or that my way is the only way. Instead, I try to help my students learn, according to their needs, through whatever method will have them achieve results the fastest- and help them continue to see improvement.

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 am licensed in NYS to teach students from birth (such as nursery/pre-k) through the 6th grade. I have taken master's level courses in reading, mathematics and assessments. I have tutored students in the elementary school in all of the main subjects- science, math, English and history- and have helped these students to not only improve in school, but to also be more knowledgeable and feel more confident about completing their assignments and schooling.

Regents

I have tutored students in the following Regents subjects: biology, chemistry and geometry (or Math I). I am able to provide tutoring in living environment, chemistry (for the physical setting), algebra, geometry, Math I and English.
As both my parents taught high school level- and Regents- sciences, and my mother is the author of several science review books (High Marks in School)- I grew up learning about these subjects, and was held to a fairly high standard. While I do not recall my math scores, I do remember that they were fairly high; my science and English Regents scores were all in/around the 90s.

Special Needs

I have worked with special needs students for more than 10 years, as an in-home provider, para/shadow, tutor and teacher. I have worked with students with severe/ multiple disabilities and students with other issues, such as ADHD, anxiety, ED/BD, OHI, and hearing/vision difficulties. I love working with kids/teens and behavioral difficulties do not bother me; while they can be hard to handle, I tend to view them as a challenge.

I know that when working with people in general, a certain degree of patience, sensitivity and caring are required. I also know that this is true, to an even greater degree, for students with special needs. By caring and sensitivity, I do not mean treating a child or person as if he can't accomplish things because of his disability; rather, it's teaching students that they can accomplish what they set their minds to...they just sometimes, like everyone else, need a little extra help.
