History is NOT boring or difficult to remember, at least the way that I teach it. I have been tutoring for over 25 years and have successfully prepared every student for their Regents exams in Global and US History. My track record includes students that were C average students and have received Regents scores in the 90s, and failing students who have received passing grades and Regents credit.
My experience as a tutor for the past 18 years in the Greece School District has been broad. I have worked with K -12 students in Social Studies, English Language Arts, Health and Business courses. For the younger grades I will also tutor math and science, but I prefer to concentrate on my areas of expertise for grades 7 - 12. Both parents and school officials have told me that I work well with even the most difficult students. I consider myself firm but fair. In addition, I have tutored several students who were about to drop out of high school and went through with tutoring and graduated.
Many students struggle because they never learned the basics or just don't understand the cause/effect relationships. I encourage my students to be honest about their understanding of the subject and we work on gaining the best way for them to internalize the material.
As an educator, I know that every child learns differently. As a parent, I know that we want our children to excel in the best way possible. My goal is to help my students not only understand the material, but to also have a sense of accomplishment.
