Thank you for taking the time to look into my profile.

I have been an educator since summer of 2009 and am currently employed at Mastbaum AVTS in the Kensington area of Philadelphia. My approach in the classroom is unconventional yet effective. I model my classroom reflecting practices popularized by Ron Clark, which makes certain that instruction is not only informative but engaging as well. From 2009-2011 I taught at Grover Washington Junior Middle School, and led my classes to tremendous gains in their mathematical performances on state testing. One crowning achievement was my work with a student, Joe, who came to me operating at a 5th grade math level in fall of 2009. With hard work, a great deal of time and patience Joe left my classroom in may 2011 working at an 11th grade math level. Even more outstanding, is the fact that Joe is a student with an IEP who has been doubted much of his life. I continue to keep in contact with Joe and am happy to say he has been on honor roll since entering high school. I hope to share my expertise with you and your student and push them towards the success they can certainly attain.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 in for the last 2 years and lead my school in student growth within this content area. I have also developed curricula, which has been adopted by the school to reflect the shift to common core standards. I come prepared to teach your child using a variety of texts and with knowledge of online programs your student can use when I am not available or there is an immediate need for clarification.
