I am so excited to potentially have a new network of students and families to work with! I would like to briefly highlight the extent of my experience so that you can decide if I am the right fit for you, your child, or family!
To begin, I am interested in tutoring school age children (K-12) in areas of social studies, English language arts, reading/writing skills, self-help skills, career development, as well as test preparation for regents, SAT, ACT etc. I am also interested in helping adults seeking test preparation, career development, GED testing and other state tests such as NYS teaching exams.
I currently hold a NYS certification in social studies education. This topic covers history including: NYS history, American history, religious studies, European history, as well as some sociology, psychology, and political science. I received my bachelor's of arts in education from the College of Saint Rose in Albany, and attended Burnt Hills Ballston Lake High School graduation year 2009.
I have worked with many ages in an academic setting including but not limited to Pre K, K, 1st-4th grade, as well as 8th and 12th grade specifically. I have some experience mentoring and tutoring some ages and grades in between through the Albany Sponsor A Scholar Program and other volunteer work I do mentoring youth.
My current job is in a Universal pre-kindergarten classroom in the Albany City School district, and I have extensive pre-K experience in a daycare setting. This experience as enabled me to become skilled in assisting young children (Pre-k-2nd) with phonics, alphabet, phonemic awareness, shapes, counting, writing, reading etc. I would feel comfortable working with students of this age in these areas.
My certification also gives me experience with an adolescent (7th-12th) age range. Here I would tutor more in a social studies realm (the topics I mentioned earlier) but would also be willing to do some of the topics in my profile including regents preparation, writing, and English language art skills.
Math and science are not areas I feel comfortable tutoring in.
Finally, I feel that my experience in academic settings has made me aware of how children learn and that all children learn differently. Some of my experience has given me hands on opportunities with children with special needs including autism spectrum disorders, Aspergers, downs syndrome, and ADD/ADHD. I would feel comfortable discussing tutoring on these basis as well.
Along with my certification in Social studies I have ~22 additional political science credits on my transcripts. Some of these credits were gained through an internship with the New York State Assembly where I learned through experience the legislative and political process at the representative and state level. Other areas of experience include political ideologies, and politics in the 21st century.
