I have been teaching for more than 10 years with the New York City Department of Education at the high school level. My expertise is in the area of Social Studies and French. I have an excellent record helping students excel on their New York State Regents exams. I like to first establish good rapport with the students to put them at ease and to gain their trust and confidence.
Together we will identify areas of weaknesses and I will tailor the tutoring sessions to address them. The strategies I'll employ will vary according to the students' learning style and ability. Students will be evaluated periodically to assess their progress. When concepts and skills are difficult, students will be given ample practice to achieve mastery of the task. Most of all, students will be encouraged to ask questions, to analyze, to conclude, to predict, and to develop higher order critical thinking skills to be better prepared for challenges ahead.
