I have an outstanding record of achievement in education including several national awards, and the distinction of having run some of the most successful programs in Long Island. The American Academy for the Advancement of Science has designed seminars to teach others my methods.
I am an experienced and effective tutor in over 30 subjects as well as a former science center director and published columnist in Scholastic. A graduate of Brooklyn College with a Bachelors in Accounting, a Masters in Computer Information Science, and a minor in Physics, I did additional English coursework at Columbia University.
With four decades of tutoring experience, my students have included K-12, junior high, high school, junior college, four-year college, university, and continuing adult education. I am NYACCE-certified. My tutoring subjects include English composition, pre-algebra, public speaking, study skills, SAT, ACT, and GED. In a classroom environment, I have taught ESL/ ESOL, TOEFL, K-12 reading, math, and science, Microsoft Power Point, and business.
I have been a judge in the Long Island Science and Engineering Fair for seven years, a guest speaker for science classes, and a career advisor for special needs high school students through the Long Island Works Coalition for ten years.
The first thing students find out with me is that tutoring is not just "more school." If you treat it as a few more hours of school, with the same approach used in the classroom, it will only bring the same frustrations. My approach is tailored to the student without any preconceived notions.
In addition to the above, I have 9 years experience as a NASA educator doing presentations for grades 3 and up; 12 years' involvement in developing informal education programs; 2 years as a tutor at Kingsborough Community College, filled in for the Brooklyn College Chairman of Economics; taught educators technology related teaching techniques in the Pennsylvania and New York school systems; created a national training program for the U.S. Treasury Department; personally trained over 100 employees; and taught technology, investments, and accounting subjects at three CPA firms.
I have a flawless driving record, I am punctual, reliable, and have passed a recent background check. Feel free to ask me any questions. My availability includes weekdays, weekends and evenings.
