I have a Master's degree in education from Columbia University's Teachers College. I am also trained in the Orton-Gillingham method for reading, writing, and spelling. This is a multi-sensory and interactive approach using visual, auditory, and kinesthetic cues to help children master the skills necessary to read, write, and spell. I am available to assist students from pre-K through adult.

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.

Career Development

I have worked in human resources where I have reviewed and evaluated several resumes and cover letters. I also volunteer for FEGS, an organization that helps unemployed people on public assistance find jobs. I help these clients prepare resumes, write cover letters, search for jobs, and fill out applications. I also work with several high school students and help them create resumes for college and summer jobs.

Dyslexia

I completed a 30 hour course in the Orton-Gillingham method of reading, writing, and spelling. The O-G approach is based on phonics and builds to reading, writing, and spelling. This method is widely recognized as a successful tool for helping dyslexic students overcome their challenges.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a licensed teacher currently working in a charter school in Brooklyn. I teach math, reading & writing, art, and study skills. I have tutored students in K-5th grade. I have specialized in the Orton-Gillingham method for reading & writing.

Phonics

I have a masters degree in education from Columbia University's Teachers College. I have worked with pre-school students for the past 10 years. I completed a 30 hour course in the Orton-Gillingham method of reading, writing, and spelling. The O-G approach is based on phonics and builds to reading, writing, and spelling.

Special Needs

I have worked with pre-school students for the past 10 years. I completed a 30 hour course in the Orton-Gillingham method of reading, writing, and spelling. The O-G approach is based on phonics and builds to reading, writing, and spelling. This multi-sensory approach is helpful by using visual, auditory, and kinesthetic methods to teach students with learning differences.

Study Skills

As a former teacher, I have developed effective systems for students to organize their work, set short and long term goals, and prioritize their assignments. These habits are transferable across subjects and grades and will be useful as students progress into high school and college. Good study skills are an important part of managing one's education.
