I have a master's degree in English and a second master's degree in school counseling, and have been working as a teacher and counselor with the Department of Education for over eleven years. I have extensive experience in instruction of the following areas: reading, writing, vocabulary, phonics, fluency and skills building. I am also experienced with the newly adopted Common Core curriculum and learning standards, as well as the format and content of the new Common Core state exam.

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.

College Counseling

I have a master's degree in school counseling from Hunter College. When I was doing my internship for my degree, I worked at Upward Bound, which is an educational support program for high school students held on Saturdays at New York University. During that time, I taught a semester-long course for juniors and seniors called "College Readiness" which dealt with various topics and issues related to college, including how to study for the PSAT and SAT, how to research various colleges and universities, how to complete a college application, how to write an essay for a college application, how to apply for financial aid, etc.

Reading

I was a 7th grade ELA teacher for 7 years, and I am now the AIS (academic intervention services) specialist in my school. I work with students in grades 6th through 8th in ELA instruction, specifically in the areas of reading and writing. During small group instruction, I work with students who need extra support in the areas of fluency, phonics and comprehension in order to build their reading skills so that they are reading on or above grade level.
