I have been an educator for over twenty years and have experience with all grade levels of elementary education. I am New York State certified in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I have tutored many children over the years and enjoy working one on one to focus on areas of difficulty they may be having. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the face of a student who is experiencing success in an area she or he thought was impossible to master. A student who has confidence can achieve anything he or she sets his or her mind to. Each of us learns in a different way, and finding that way can unlock the key to success.

I have also worked with adults to help them to become proficient in reading, writing and speaking English. Having a command of the English language has increased their confidence and has allowed them to further their career goals.

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 have a Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speakers Of Other Languages (k-12). I have experience teaching all subjects on the elementary school level. I ran the Crown Community Tutoring Program for three years.
This program enabled students from grades k-6,who were struggling with a particular subject, get the help they needed to be successful. I have also helped prepare students for the state Science and Math exams. I have been working as a tutor for over twenty years helping students at the elementary level become more confident in their abilities and achieve success.

Special Needs

I have had many special needs students mainstreamed into my general education class. During this time, I have worked closely with parents, counselors and special education teachers to learn how to best serve their needs. I feel that I have been very successful and have the patience and ability to work with students with special needs.
