I currently teach Math and Science for 7th and 8th grade students and I have 9 years experience as a High School Theology and English teacher. I have been tutoring for the past 11 years in English (language arts, literature), History, and Math (elementary Math, algebra, geometry). I have worked with students ranging from the 1st grade to Juniors in high school. I have helped with elementary/middle school state test preps as well as the New York State High School Regents. My experience has taught me how to help my students focus and prepare them for their ultimate goal, whether it is doing well in a course or on a state test. I enjoy my time as a tutor because I am able to work closely with an individual student or a small group and I can focus on specific topics giving them trouble. I try my best to be enthusiastic about the topic I am speaking about and try to relate it to the students' lives no matter what the subject. I feel that as long as I am positive and enthusiastic, the same can be expected from my student(s).

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.
