Elementary (K-6th)

I am permanently certified in New York State for Nursery through 6th grade. I have a Masters of Science in Teaching. I have worked in classrooms in public and private schools in New York City and Westchester. Currently, I am a private tutor. I have great success with students across age levels and subject areas. My specialty is literacy and emergent academics. I have knowledge of the schools in New York City. This knowledge, combined with my teaching skills, has enabled me to develop a rapport with students and their families. Using a patient, directed approach, I can inspire reluctant learners and develop skills and talents. I am confident I can help your child, and that you would welcome me into your home.

Phonics

Phonics is the basis of reading. While there are many skills involved in reading, the sound-symbol correspondence is the most important. Phonics builds on a child's innate facility for language. Phonics must be combined with other methods of reading instruction, including whole language.

I use a variety of methods for teaching phonics: alphabet review, phonemic awareness, Orton-Gillingham devices, and inventive spelling. Children can play games, learn mnemonics, relate pictures to sounds and just have fun with language! Most of all, I encourage children to read any book they can. Of course, I support reading aloud to children. These phonics activities, combined with heavy print exposure, will lead to success in reading.

Special Needs

I have experience working with children who have writing issues, dyslexia, or weak pencil grip. Language development and socialization are also areas of expertise. I work on remedial reading, remedial math and organization/executive management problems. Additionally, I work with advanced students who's "special need" is to be challenged beyond the classroom. Really, every child has "special needs". I am good at spotting what the issue is, and working on precisely the type of skills which will aid the student to overcome deficiencies and gain self-confidence.

Study Skills

Study skills are necessary to succeed in education. I work with students to develop strategies which complement learning style and lifestyle. Topics include time management, work flow and good study habits. I can also work on learning strategies, such as note taking, changing questions into answers, reference skills and getting information from pictures. Reading comprehension and active reading are areas of expertise.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
