I have 25 years of experience in education. I have taught from 4th grade to 9th grade and tutored students in all grades including community college. I am certified in English and in Math for grades 1-8. I have taught math in high school and am working on completing the requirements to be certified in Secondary math. I have prepared many students in middle school to take the ISEE high school entrance test. I am also able to work with students in reading, writing and English. I am experienced in MLA and APA style writing. I am very patient and I understand students that do not understand easily. I use a hands-on method to help students move from concrete to abstract concepts. I will work with you at the level you are beginning on and take you to where you would like to be to complete your program of study. I have 25 years of experience in education.

My rates are per hour, per student. If there are two or more students, I will offer a combined price for the group.
My daughter really liked Ms. Valerie's patience. She was able to understand her instructions. We are really looking forward to more sessions and view the results.
I'm currently working with Valerie and she is very good at what she does. She makes things easy to understand. Highly recommend.
Worth every penny. My son is very pleased with her. She is very conscientious and result oriented. Provides detail oriented ISEE training with vocab list, math drills ect. Has experience with exam at all levels. Highly recommended.
Valerie is an amazing tutor! We are so fortunate to have found her at WyzAnt. She's patient, intelligent, effective and punctual. My 9 year old son is very responsive to her instruction. I've found her tutoring to be an investment well worth it. I highly recommend Valerie. You will not be disappointed.
Ms. VALERIE spent several hours with my child who did not pass his star test in math. He still may not pass the make up test due to the short time she had to work with him but I assure you that he stands a lot better chance now than before she worked with him. If she had more time with him I think he may be able to ace it. Maybe not, but she is good and very reasonable. Recommended by me.
Thank you Valerie making sure my son understands the Math he has issues with. You have really encouraged him to try and do better. Although he's still in rough place he is happy get help from you.
I really feel like we are a team and that we will get through the challenges I am having.
Valerie has a great touch on the way she she deals with my daughter. She gets her to understand in a way that is so simplified and also in a fun loving environment. I have also seen the enthusiasm in my daughter now to complete her assignments more accurately. I would recommend her to anyone whose child is having difficulty. She is awesome!!!
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.
This course is the foundation for high school mathematics courses. It is the bridge from the concrete to the abstract study of mathematics. Topics include simplifying expressions, evaluating and solving equations and inequalities, and graphing linear and quadratic functions and relations. Real world applications are presented within the course content and a function's approach is emphasized.
A general education in K-6 includes all major subjects - math, English, reading, science, social studies, and spelling. I am a certified elementary teacher for grades 1-8 with 20 years of experience in the classroom. I will take your child from the level he/she is on and lead them on an exciting journey to the next level.
This course is designed to develop the skills and understanding to perform the fundamental operations on whole numbers, fractions and decimals. Topics include the base ten system, rounding, prime numbers, factors, least common multiples and conversions between decimals and fractions.
I have tutored students and conducted classes for the ISEE exams at several Catholic elementary schools. My students have been very successful in attaining acceptance to the high school of their choice. I am currently working with students at all levels to prepare them for the January exam dates.
Study skills includes learning how to organize and schedule projects, test and daily assignments. I will teach your student how to properly use a planner to ensure that all assignments are completed on time or before. Study techniques would also be learned depending upon your student's learning style. Students that are auditory learners need to have things verbally explained and or read to them. They also need to hear themselves read out loud and explain things to others to help them figure out various concepts. Students that are kinesthetic need to have hands on experiences to best learn concepts. I would work with manipulatives, diagrams and hands-on materials that your student would be able to touch and feel to learn. For the visual learner, I would work with various visual illustrations, flash cards and other activities that would aid the student in their studies.
Study skills would also include doing research, planning out projects with definite steps towards completion, and learning how to outline and take notes in an organized manner that will be easy to understand and study. Organization is also a factor in study skills. I would teach your child how to properly organized school work, binders, folders, etc. to meet their needs to make sure that they know where to find all materials when needed.
