About Naftali

My name is Naftali. My family and I moved to LA, CA from NY a year and a half ago.

I was a Special Education Teacher Assistant for 11 years back in New York. Now I am home schooling my 13 1/2 year old daughter and am looking to tutor children K-6.

My classes consisted of 11 children in a self-contained classroom. Their ages range from 10 - 12 years old, and they are on different levels academically as well as emotionally. It is quite challenging and rewarding to deal with each child individually as well as collectively, to help them overcome their learning disabilities.

In 2013 I taught Kindergarten children.

I enjoyed each day Monday - Friday with my adorable Kindergarten children. I love playing with them, reading stories, and doing simple math problems! We have fun at recess and lots of birthday parties too!

My interest in working with Kindergarten children as well as older kids up to 6th grade has provided me an opportunity to grow up with and teach them skills that will last them a lifetime. I would like to think that I have made a lasting impression on them. I understand the challenges that these kids have with various subjects and how to help them accomplish their goals.

I feel each child should learn according to his/her ability whether he/she is a visual, hands-on, or a cognitive learner. I enjoy watching children finally understand a concept I teach them in any subject. I expect them to get great results with my help.

It is nice to be appreciated by my students as well as their parents. I have many "thank you" notes, which I have saved in my personal file.

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)

B.A. - Elementary Education/Sociology I am currently teaching in the East Ramapo Central School District.

Hebrew

I am originally from Israel and speak, read and write Hebrew fluently. It is my native language. I can help students with Biblical Hebrew and spoken Hebrew.

Special Needs

I have been working with Special Needs Teenagers for 8 years in the capacity of a community vocational coach. I taught them limited academics as well as life skills that lead them to find work after graduation from this program. These students were developmentally disabled.

During the morning hours, the students were taught various subjects on their IQ level. After lunch, they were transported to a grocery store to learn functional skills such as sorting, pricing, and packaging candy. We used such equipment as machinery, labels, & sealers.
