I am an experienced History and English teacher of middle and high school students with over 30 years in Independent schools. I work with students individually and in small groups to help them in organization and note taking, critical reading and analysis and in improving their writing skills. I am flexible in my teaching methods and am always ready to try different techniques to assist students achieve success in what they are trying to do. I can meet my students in my home office in Manhattan or travel locally to a location more convenient for the student. I can be available on weekends and also in the evenings after school hours. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy but am willing to give students an opportunity to make up the time in a reasonable manner.

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.

Geography

I have studied geography as a separate subject in high school and as part of my undergraduate studies. I have also taught geography in combination with history in various courses and schools. I have given tests and map questions related to historical events in which geography has played an important role.

Religion

I designed and taught an course on Asian religions - Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Confucianism and Daoism - for four years to juniors and seniors. I also designed and taught a course on world religions in history and literature which included the above religions as well as Judaism and Christianity to Juniors and seniors for three years. Both courses were taught at the Riverdale Country School in New York, NY. I have also taken a course on Islam at New York University.

Social Studies

I have taught various subjects that come under the aegis of Social Studies. Examples: World History, Advanced Placement courses in American and European history, Feminism and gender studies, Law and the Constitution in the United States, World Religions. All these subjects have been taught mostly at the high school level but some also at the 7th and 8th grade level.
My educational background which includes a Master's degree in History from the University of Cambridge in England and over 35 hours of teaching History, Geography and World cultures qualifies me to teach Social Studies to middle and high school students.
