I began teaching as an elementary school teacher and proceeded to teach middle school students and also high school students. My experiences include working with students in homes, libraries, and hospitals in various parts of Westchester. For the past 13+ years I have been tutoring students of all ages K-17 on a 1-1 tutorial basis and am flexible, and use various methods of teaching, depending upon the situation, the student, and what I feel the student will learn from. I adapt to each student, and his or her needs, and recognize that each student is an individual and requires their own method of teaching and learning. Progress is a sign that shows the student has improved and in most cases students and parents have expressed positive opinions regarding the tutorials. Most of all, I enjoy what I do, and the students do as well!)

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 with children and adolescents who have the diagnosis of ADD/ADHD, teaching reading, comprehension, literature, social studies. Some of these children were at home, and not in school, some were in the hospital, and some children I tutored at the nearest library. All instruction was individualized.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher K-6th grade in NYS. I have experience teaching children of this age for many years. I taught 4th grade for three years as well.

SAT Reading

I have a Masters Degree in Reading Education and have taught reading for a number of years. I have included Vocabulary and essay writing in the subjects that I have taught, and feel qualified to tutor for the Reading part of the SAT.
