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.

American History

I have a Master's degree in history. I taught more than a dozen courses in American History in my 27 years of teaching at the High School level. I taught American History in Night School.

Government & Politics

I have a Master's degree in history. My Bachelor's degree was in Political Science. I taught many courses in Government at the High School level.

Grammar

I have Master's degree in history. Also, I have a state's certificate to teach English as a second language.

Political Science

My Bachelor's degree was in Political Science. My Master's degree was in history.

Regents

I have a Master's degree in history. Also, I tutored students after school in how to pass the regents exams in American and Global History for more than 25 years. Also, I taught Summer school to students who needed to pass the Regent's exam in American and Global History for more than 25 years.

Social Studies

I have a Masters degree in history at Herbert Lehman College. Also, I taught Social Studies in High School for 27 years. I tutored students in history for more than 25 years after school.

Spanish

I was born in Ecuador, South America. I attended High School there, and in the United States also. I taught E.S.L. at the Spanish American Institute, where students knew the Spanish language only. I taught history only in Spanish at the High School level.

Spelling

Spanish is my native language. Also, I took 4 years of French in College. These two languages prepared me to learn spelling in English. Spelling in any language is the most difficult part to learn. Then, I obtained my Master's Degree. Also, I taught in High School for 28 years. I taught E.S.L. for one year. Spelling was essential for students to learn.

TOEFL

I studied English for many years. I enjoyed teaching grammar to people who had been born in the United States. I enjoyed teaching students in two languages. I enjoy learning other languages, too. The root of learning any language is to know its grammar. I have a Master's degree in Social Studies, and I taught for 28 years. This has given me an insight in how to help people with their weakness in their English language.

Vocabulary

Spanish is my native language. Also, I took 4 years of French in college. I took English courses that emphasized on vocabulary. I learned more vocabulary when I obtained my Master's Degree. I feel that I am more than capable to help students on this area.

World History

I have a Master's degree in history. I taught Global History for many years at the High School level. I also taught Global History in Night School.

Former High School Teacher. I taught for 28 years. I love teaching. I am very patient with my students. I look for ways to make students understand the concepts. Everybody can learn. You just have to find the way to help a person learn. When my students thank me when they pass a test, I tell them, do not thank me, thank yourselves. Students do the work, I just guide them.
