Hello! I am a mother of four school-aged children ages 10-24 years old. I am a NYS public school teacher with permanent elementary certification (no expiration) pre-kindergarten through 6th grade in all subjects/areas. I have over 12 years of elementary school classroom teaching experience. I also have over 10 years experience as the director of an elementary school after-school extended day program.

I have strong instructional skills and demonstrate a mastery of all subject matter in my certification. I am professional and have an unyielding commitment to the students. I am relentlessness in doing whatever it takes to ensure my student’s success. I have excellent communication skills with my students and my parents. I am highly organized, mature, and have a strong work ethic. Besides teaching and tutoring during the school year, I enjoy tutoring students over the summer so they do not loose what they have already achieved. Through instruction, I help them gain confidence to be successful in school. During the summer I have sessions of time available to tutor on some weekdays and weeknights at the local public library. During the school year, I have sessions of time available to tutor on some weeknights and days off from school at the local public library.

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 have NYS Permanent Certification grades pre-K through 6th, which covers all elementary school subject areas.

Handwriting

I have NYS Permanent Certification grades Pre-K through 6th which covers all elementary school subject areas. I teach the Wilson FUNdations program daily as a Literacy Support Teacher. This is a Phonics and handwriting program for elementary school students. It also teaches students how to sound out, spell and write words on paper using proper lines and pencil grip. The format is also a great tool for teaching students how to study words for spelling tests or how to memorize and study any information by using the repetitive techniques in the program. I am also certified through WyzAnt in Grammar, Reading and Vocabulary and the above added information shows that I am strong in Handwriting.
