I am a dedicated tutor with seven years of private tutoring experience and 11 years of teaching experience in all K-6 subject areas. Being attuned to students’ learning styles, I have the ability to present material in a manner suited to the individual student’s specific needs. I have a knack for engaging even students who are extremely shy, and always go the extra mile to gain and maintain the trust of all my students.

I believe that giving students confidence in their knowledge of the subject matter is essential to their success. To this end, I have attended science fairs and other student presentations. I will also speak with teachers in person or by phone and attend parent-teacher conferences if asked.

My specialties are math and ELA; however, I often tutor students in all other subject areas. I have specific expertise in standardized test preparation as well.

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)

As an experienced teacher, I have tutored and taught all of the major elementary (K-6th) subjects - math, ELA, science, and social studies. I have an MSED in pre-K through 6th grade and was provisionally certified in New York State. Through years of substitute teaching, I have learned various methodologies in order to fit the teaching style to the individual student's learning style.

Sewing

I was taught to sew as a child, both by machine and by hand. I've made clothing, accessories, home furnishings and quilts. While working at a fabric store, I taught sewing and quilting classes, and have taught neighbors and their children the proper use of the sewing machine.

Writing

I work with children at all elementary grade levels, striving towards effective writing. Although, not an easy task, there are many techniques to break the 'writer's block'.
