I have a Master's in Elementary Education, experience with special needs students and a love of teaching elementary math and reading. I have experience in suburban and urban school systems as well as tutoring as a volunteer and private tutor in New York City. My methods are designed to match the student's needs. In general I am rigorous and patient. Student learning is my number one concern. I am also friendly and caring and try to ensure that learning is a positive experience.
I am qualified to tutor dyslexic students because of the time I spent teaching in the resource room of a Jr. High school special needs department. I worked with several dyslexic students on their reading and reading comprehension. I also have read extensively on the subject and have incorporated methods (especially phonic) in my tutoring.
I have a masters of education in elementary education. In studying for my master's, I took classes in elementary and higher math. I student taught 5th grade (all subjects including math), and I also taught math k-9th grade at Huntington Learning Center. As a teacher in the special education department at Edgartown School, I supported students in math class and with small group tutorials.
I am qualified to tutor phonics because during my graduate studies in Elementary Education we studied a program called "Words Their Way," which highlighted phonics study. I also tutored using "Explode the Code" at Huntington Learning Center. "Explode the Code" is a phonics-based workbook program.
