Bonnie’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
I am a New York State Certified in Math 7-12, and I have many years of experience tutoring students for all types of exams.
First, I hold NYS certification in two areas covering grades 1-12. My teaching experience includes children with special needs; among them is students with ADD/ADHD. As a classroom teacher and substitute, I have had all types of students in both inclusion settings, 15:1, and 8:1:1. As a home tutor, I have worked one-on-one with ADD/ADHD and other children with special needs. Additionally, I am currently pursuing a third certification in Special Education, and already taken a class in Learning Disabilities which has given me strategies to help teach these children.
I myself am organized and detailed, and have helped many, many students improve their own ability to organize! This is often an area of weakness for children with Learning Disabilities.
I am a very resourceful, creative professional with a wealth of experience and great love of teaching young people. Fluent in Spanish, highly articulate and flexible. I have had great success tutoring high school kids and helping them do well on the Regents Exams! I hold NYS teaching certification in several areas including Math 7-12.
I look forward to helping your son or daughter!
My substitute teaching experience has provided me with many opportunities to be in classroom situations with these children. As a home tutor, I have tutored children "on the spectrum." Additionally, I am currently pursuing New York State certification in special education, and am taking courses and workshops on learning disabilities and autism.

My many years of teaching experience include elementary students. As a music teacher, several of my positions included classes and musical organizations with students in grades K-6.
