Hi. My name is Pam. I have tutored privately for over five years, but I am new to WyzAnt. I have an MBA from Pace University and an undergraduate degree in education with a minor in psychology from Ithaca College. I began private tutoring about five years ago, after retiring from Wall Street and raising my children. I also tutored during my college years to earn spending money. In addition, I worked as a volunteer tutor in the Edgemont, NY, school district and served on the school board nominating committee for many years. I presently tutor all subjects K-12 as seen on my tutor profile and some college level courses. My subject specialties are Math, Language Arts, History, and all Sciences except Physics. I tutor because it is rewarding, and not just to earn a living. I tutor organizational skills, test prep including SAT, GMAT, Regents, and other standardized tests. I also tutor how to use computer software such as Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Microsoft Office, QuickBooks and Quicken on both Macs and PCs. I have special experience tutoring ADD and ADHD students. I gained this experience hands-on using alternative learning styles. I can supply a recent 2012 background check and references upon request.
I have different methods of tutoring, depending on the individual I am working with, and the subject matter involved. I get results. I also try to work with the parents' and/or student's requests and specifics. I am able to communicate and work with all age groups and personalities. I gear my teaching accordingly. I currently tutor on my own, gaining a client base by word of mouth, and would like to add more clients to my schedule. Give me a try; I'm sure you will be happy to have found me as a tutor.
