I have been tutoring students of all ages, starting from kindergarten all the way through college. I have taught Mathematics Workshops at Touro College, and privately tutored at home. My expertise lies in mathematics and science, although I have had great success in helping students in History/Global Regents, prepping for the ELA and other state exams, and helping students with entrance exams (private schools, specialized high schools, SATs, GREs, GMAT).

I request that students come to tutoring at my residence, as I have an office set up geared to enhance the time spent at the lesson. From dry erase boards and plenty of textbooks, to colorful markers and learning tools for children, I believe that it is the ideal environment for any student to learn. I assign homework on a regular basis, and occasionally administer quizzes to test the progress the student is making.

If I see that the student is successful in their grade, I move onto more difficult work, prepping them for the years ahead (this is especially essential for students that wish to enter gifted programs/specialized high schools). I am charismatic, patient, and know what to look for when a student is struggling.

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.

I have been preparing students for the Regents Exams for over 10 years, including Math A, Math B,Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, American History, and Global.
