I enjoy helping students learn. Every child can and should succeed! I am #2 since 2013 with the most WyzAnt tutoring hours in the Myrtle Beach/Conway area.

My background includes over 33 years experience in teaching and working with students K-12 in South Carolina, New York, New Jersey, and Florida. I have over 145 hours of tutoring experience with 75 Five Star Parent Ratings since 2013. I tutor students in elementary, middle and high school as well as adults including ACT, PSAT, SAT, GED, ASVAB Test preparation.

My tutoring experience is in South Carolina and New Jersey. I am bilingual, with the ability to speak both English and Spanish. I am married with four children.

I utilize methods which build on developing students' confidence levels and working on skills which facilitate success, not failure.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have over 33 years in teaching/supervising students K-12. I am a retired New York City School Teacher. I have taught thousands of children.

Handwriting

I am a certified elementary school teacher in NY and NJ and have over 25 years of teaching experience grades pre-k through grade 8. During that time I taught manuscript as well as cursive to hundreds of children. I have over 100 hours of tutoring experience in South Carolina.

Phonics

I have taught reading to children using phonics for over two decades K-6. Although children can learn to read in other ways, the phonetic approach is most helpful to most students.

My extensive teaching/supervisory experience for over 3 decades has allowed me to develop a vast array of study techniques which help most students improve in their academic areas.
