Hello, my name is Joseph and I am a certified teacher living in Sunnyside. Currently I am a substitute teacher for the city, and am a graduate of SUNY BInghamton with a master's of science in elementary education and literacy. I am certified in New York State as a reading teacher, as well as a general education teacher. I have a professional level of knowledge for all elementary level content, and expert level knowledge in Social Studies (k-12).
I am also experienced with a variety of assessments as well as solutions to specific difficulties in reading and writing. I also know how to choose the right books to engage a struggling student. I am familiar with many different reading programs including: Reader's and Writer's Workshop, Reading Street, and Fundations.
I am capable of teaching students not only the process to solve mathematical equations, but also can help to increase their understanding of the core concepts. I am familiar with math programs including: EnVisions, Everyday Math, and Go Math.
I am an effective science tutor and when possible will tutor lessons using hands on and interactive materials.

I have experience as both a teacher and as a tutor, and I understand how to meet the individual needs of each student.
