About Maurice

Hi!! My name is Maurice and I may be just the tutor you are looking for.

There are many challenges in life. In order to succeed, students must be prepared to meet the challenges in an ever changing world. In order to meet those challenges, students need to have the tools in order to succeed. Sometimes, it could mean something as simple as a tutoring session in order to meet the challenge. All students can learn. All students can succeed. You may not get there today or tomorrow, but you will get there. My job is to help you get there. We are a team.

We will work on various items. Assessments will be conducted to see the student’s abilities so that we will know how much we need to do in order to get where we want to be. The learning component has two parts: reading and writing. As we progress, we will see how both parts work together. In time, students will also learn how to express themselves through writing. Students will be required to keep a diary which will be used as a writing sample. The diaries will also serve as a reminder to students of where they were in the process and how they proceeded to their desired success level. Again, all students can succeed. The only inner prerequisite for success is the desire to learn.

I am an experienced teacher. I have been an active educator since September of 1978. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and American Literature. I hold a Master's degree in Secondary Education and a Professional Diploma in School Administration. All my studies were completed at St. John's University in NYC. In addition, I am a fully certified teacher and administrator in New York State. I truly understand the needs of each and every student.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have been an English teacher for 34 years. I have taught in elementary and high school. In my free time, I write. I will be more than happy to bring samples for you to examine. Writing is VERY important to me.

Public Speaking

I am an experienced public speaker. I will teach two parts: overcoming stage fright and delivery. Students will be called upon to utilize familiar passages in order to create a style for speaking in public.
