Approved subjects are in bold.

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 hold a master's degree in Elementary Special Education from Hunter College in New York City. I hold dual state certification in teaching general education and education to students with disabilities. I qualified to teach all core subjects, including: math, science, reading, writing, geography, etc., at the elementary level.

Phonics

As a certified teacher, I have spent years teaching phonics using a variety of techniques: The Wilson Reading System, Recipe for Reading, Words Their Way, and Rime to Read. I also use GLASS analysis, which involves isolating particular phonemes in words.

Public Speaking

As part of my Master's Degree training, I studied public speaking techniques. I am well versed in breathing relaxation exercises (as a warm-up to speaking in public), articulation exercises (including phonetic emphasis and isolation), and standards of speaking (how to modify a thought into a presentable speech-sentence during a presentation). I also do exercises to improve eye contact and maintain muscle relaxation during a presentation.

Special Needs

Special Needs can refer to either a need for instructional adaptations to address cognitive impairments of a particular student, or, sometimes more inclusively, co-morbid cognitive and physical disabilities. I am a state certified in Elementary Special Education, trained to modify curriculum to help a student perform optimally.

Study Skills

I am certified in Elementary Special Education (grades 1-6). Part of my specialization includes teaching students study techniques: mappping (writing a brief summary of a paragraph after reading it), SQ3R, and acronym mnemonic techniques. I also help students organize their study materials into important categories before they begin preparing for an exam.
