Are you seeking an individual to work with your child who is caring, sensitive, and patient? Then read on. My name is Mindy. I have 11 years of experience assisting elementary students, including working with a diverse spectrum of special need students. My main emphasis is working within the literacy and mathematic programs. I have experience tutoring mathematics from elementary through college levels, including the Common Core math program, the algebra regents, COOP/HSPT, International 10th grade Exam, and the GED. In the past I assisted with statistical analysis for doctorate level candidates. There is nothing more satisfying then to see a child not only master a skill, but to see the smile of accomplishment on their face. I look forward to meeting your child, and working closely with you and your child to aid in their success!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked for the past 11 years in an Elementary school focusing on the literacy and Math program with grade levels K-5. I have had the opportunity to work with several children with ADD/ADHD over the years as well as other learning and emotional disorders. My strongest attribute in educating children is my patience.

COOP/HSPT

With my 11 years of assistant teaching with elementary students specifically with literacy, language arts and math and my experience tutoring math through middle school and algebra, I feel highly qualified to tutor in the area of the COOP/HSPT exam. My expertise in mathematics through college level courses coupled with my extensive training in language arts at the primary level enable me to tutor students of various needs. I am currently tutoring two students who will be taking this test in November. I feel my experience with tutoring for the math regents, the GED, and the 10th grade International Exam have prepared me in all areas required for the COOP/HSPT exam.

Elementary (K-6th)

For the past 11 years I have worked in all grades from K-5, except 4th grade. I have extensive experience in reading, writing, literacy, math and science. I have worked both one on one and with the entire class.

Elementary Math

For the past 11 years I have been employed as a teacher's aid in an elementary environment. I have worked with all grade levels covering all literacy and math programs. I have experience working with the Common Core, TERC and the Investigation math programs. I also have a strong math background. My previous experience includes tutoring college level students in math and doctorate level candidates in statistics.

Phonics

With my 11 years of experience working with k-2nd grade literacy program, I feel that I would qualify for a phonics certification. My skills include alphabet sounds, practicing beginning and ending sounds, family groups, and strategies used to teach phonics. My responsibilities for the past 10 years with first graders included reading books from level 1-level 20 every day with ~20 students reinforcing many phases of phonics.

Reading

I have worked as a Teacher's Aide for 11 years. My main focus with reading has been in the primary levels. In Kindergarten, I instruct students through two of the four literacy centers used daily to achieve letter and sound recognition and to increase writing proficiency. In first grade I read daily with each student working on strategies to help them achieve independence. I assist in the writing component of utilizing and organizing thoughts and sentences. For second grade, I assist with math and writing workshops. I help students to produce effective writing, revising and editing techniques. With third graders, I assist with reading, writing and occasionally math. Twice a week, I meet with two book club groups, which emphasize and incorporate reading strategies and techniques.

Regents

I have been tutoring since January 2013 with WyzAnt. I have prior mathematics tutoring experience both with the algebra regents and with the math portion of the GED. Since joining WyzAnt, I have worked with 2 individuals with algebra to prepare for the regents and 1 international student preparing for the international exam which focused on algebra.

Special Needs

I have worked for the past 11 years in an Elementary school focusing on the literacy and Math program with grade levels K-5. I have had the opportunity to work one on one with several children with ADD/ADHD over the years as well as other learning and emotional disorders: including autism and Aspergers. I am able to quickly build a trusting relationship with the child and use different strategies to keep their interest and attention. For children with ADD/ADHD I coordinate several activities to instruct on a lesson. I utilize many hands on manipulates and visual aids to assist in my tutoring. My strongest asset in educating special needs students is my patience.
