I am N.Y State licensed and certified as an elementary teacher (K-6) and have extensive experience in teaching adults English as a Second Language. I am bilingual in Spanish and have outstanding recommendations in both areas. I also have been giving piano lessons for over 20 years privately. I teach all levels beginners to advanced and can give lessons in my home.

I am very patient and understanding given my over 15 years in elementary education. It is very rewarding for me to tutor one to one and see the progress that my students make. I have 2 children and tutor them as well. I also have experience in teaching special needs children, specifically high-functioning autistic young adults.

I have a love of teaching and learning that I want to pursue on a part-time basis now. I relate well to children of all ages and so they respond positively to my instruction. I give plenty of positive reinforcement to all my students that encourages them to do their best.

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

My name is Kristine and I am a licensed and certified teacher for almost 20 years. I have tutored autistic, dyslexic and Asperger's students one-to-one in a variety of subject areas. Within the elementary classroom on a regular basis I needed to use my training and experience to redirect attention deficit students and allow them flexibility in the classroom and structure so they could feel more comfortable and achieve success in the classroom at their own pace.

I find teaching special needs students very rewarding and have a gentle, caring personality that puts them at ease and helps them feel less stressed. Thank you.

Chess

I am a licensed and certified teacher for over 15 years. I have led chess clubs and taught children of all ages. I also give piano lessons and have my own following for over 20 years.

College Counseling

I have taught ESL to adult students of the English language preparing to enter American universities. I am very familiar with the application procedures and my specialty is language arts, grammar, spelling and punctuation. The process is very important as the first impression colleges have of prospective students.

I have been a licensed and certified teacher for 20 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a NY State certified and licensed teacher N-6. I often taught lessons at Hemlock School in Garden City. I was very active in the Garden City PTA. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th grades. I was a tenured teacher in the Island Park Schools. I have taught for almost 20 years. I now live in Williston Park and have 2 children.

I worked in the enrichment program at the Long Island Conservatory of Music, Willis Avenue, Albertson.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Elementary Science

I have taught 6 grade science as well as Grades K, 1, 2, and 3rd grade science according to the NY State curriculum and standards.

ESL/ESOL

I have extensive experience in teaching communication, grammar, reading/writing, listening and pronunciation to English as a Second Language students. I also taught GED and TOEFL preparation classes as well as tutoring.

I love teaching ESL to students of all levels and ages.

Grammar

Grammar tutoring would focus on the tenses and their usage, active and passive voices, irregular verbs, some spelling and punctuation.

It could include grammar in writing and/or oral usage based on your needs.

Piano

I have been teaching piano to all levels for over 15 years. I am a NY State certified and licensed teacher. I am patient and caring. I live in Williston Park and have two young children of my own. I can provide references upon request.

I instruct piano using scales, exercises, classical as well as popular music. I have prepared students for the NYSSMA competition in the spring.

Special Needs

I am a licensed and certified teacher who has worked with children with special needs and learning disabilities, especially autistic children.

I am patient and caring and work well one-to-one. I can provide references if necessary.

Study Skills

I am a licensed and certified teacher. I have taught most grades through middle school, SAT preparation, and ESL for adults. I am very organized and structured in my philosophy. But I am a kind, patient and caring teacher. I can provide references upon request.

Tennis

I have been an avid tennis player since I was about thirteen. I have taken many years of lessons and love the game. I am a licensed and certified N.Y. State teacher. I would forward to having a tennis partner to teach.
