Is your child struggling with reading or writing? Is he or she below grade reading level? Or maybe it's your teen struggling to learn the content and strategies needed to pass their English Language Arts Regents Exam, I am a FT English Teacher with a background in Literacy and English as a second language. I am fluent in verbal and written Spanish and a I have a Masters degree in English from NYU where I graduated with Honors. I also hold a 2nd certification in Literacy from LIU. I have published a story for a prestigious educational publishing company about my experience in teaching.
I have a track record for improving student outcomes and progress, The areas I specialize in are:
ELA Regents Test Prepping
Emergent & Primary literacy skills
and Conversational Spanish.
My sessions with your child will commence by assessing your child's abilities in the area of focus and customizing an instructional plan specifically targeting their needs.
I am a NYS Certified English teacher. When tutoring a student in English, lessons may vary depending on students specific needs. Tutoring lessons may include reading/writing, and all elements of reading comprehension. Especially the skills needed for NYS ELA exams and Regents for older students.
I am a NYS certified English teacher. Each child's needs will be completely different when needing to improve their grammar skills. When tutoring to improve grammar, my main focus will be to asses your child and work on enhancing your child's structure of the English language as a whole (syntax, morphology, pragmatics and phonology).
Having a background in English and Literacy, I am able to help students gain the necessary skills needed to understand phonics and phonemic awareness in single letters/words/and sentences. I have used the Wilson Fundations program, INSIDE Phonics, and Words Their Way, in addition to supplemental program materials.
I am fluent in verbal and written Spanish as it is my native tongue. When tutoring you, we will focus on the basics needed for conversational Spanish.
Spelling can often times be the hardest concept for students to grasp due to the many rules involved. When tutoring your child in Spelling, we will focus on patterns rather than rules which can be confusing. Words will be broken down by parts and students will be able to read words with more fluency and remember patterns to help them spell them.
Vocabulary knowledge is not something that can ever be fully mastered; it is something that expands and deepens over the course of a lifetime. To teach vocabulary to your child, I would first do a word inventory for their particular grade. Then provide specific and rich instruction to enhance their vocabulary through authentic texts by engaging them in using and thinking about word meanings and in creating relationships among words.
Writing can range from basic CVC word formation to writing a critical lens essay for a Regents exam. Tutoring your child in writing will depend on his or her age and vary on their specific needs. Writing lessons can range from THE WRITING PROCESS, to PROPER WRITING MECHANICS, to the basics of CAPITALIZATION and PUNCTUATION. E-mail me today for further information.
