, and English for Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade and E.S.L. students- Pre-Kindergarten to Adults. I have also taught math
and social studies in 1st-5th grade
In addition, I have experience in Exam Preparation for the Verbal Portions of the SAT
, HSPT, GED

. I also tutor the Science
section of the ACT. I also have experience tutoring for the ISEE
Exam at all levels (lower, mid, upper) and HSPT entrance exams for private schools.
I have over 20 plus years in the field of education. I will tutor in your home, at the local coffee shop, library or any other place of convenience for parent and or student.
For all students in every area that I tutor, I have the background, experience, and knowledge to plan and implement instruction designed to meet every student at their educational level while also taking into account their individual learning style.
I talk with parents and students before or at the first session to gather educational needs and to set goals for student progress. As I plan lessons, I take into account these needs and goals, while accessing student performance, and am constantly evaluating/adapting my delivering according to student learning during the session. I take anecdotal records during each session and email
parents of student progress after each session. As an instructor, I use the notes to plan the next tutoring session with regard to strengths and areas for additional instruction, enrichment opportunities, cross-curricular integration, and to keep a running record of student progress from the initial tutoring session to the current session. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
