I have been tutoring students of all ages since I was in high school. I worked in a fifth grade classroom in Maryland for a year and then came to New York where I got a full scholarship to NYU for Math Education. I now work at a prestigious high school in Manhattan as a 9th grade math teacher.

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 am a certified teacher in elementary education in both New York and Maryland. I student taught the fifth grade for a year in Beltsville, Maryland. I later chose to pursue a degree in Math Education on full scholarship from NYU. I tutored a fourth grade student in all subject areas. I helped him to develop better number sense and mental math abilities. We also discussed strategies for critical reading including annotating, inferencing, and questioning. In science and social studies we worked on note-taking and diagramming to better understand certain concepts. I like to use graphic organizers like concept maps, KWL charts, etc. with my students.

Geometry

I taught geometry two years ago and all of my students passed the NYS Regents. I have also tutored a student in this subject. His grades improved tremendously throughout the year. I have a lot of experience and know how to meet the needs of any kind of learner.

Study Skills

I am a certified teacher in elementary education in both New York and Maryland. I student-taught the fifth grade for a year in Beltsville, Maryland. I later chose to pursue a degree in Math Education on full scholarship from NYU. I now work as a ninth grade Math teacher and tutor a tenth grader. I have been tutoring this student for 4 years in math and study skills. He has made tremendous improvements in his work habits and organization. We discussed how to outline using various note taking techniques. I also have my students set goals through individualized learning plans with respect to their study skills and work habits.
