About Judith

As a retired teacher, I realize how much I miss working with students and finding the clues to how they learn.

I believe there are many ways of learning and often it is difficult to learn and always have to adapt one's own strengths to the methods sometimes used in the classroom.

As a teacher who worked with students of all educational backgrounds and capabilities, I found that the challenge of discovering their learning style enabled me to adapt my lessons to their particular needs.

I do not believe in "lazy children" or "children who are bored." I believe everyone loves to learn and it is the job of the teacher to explore with the students how they learn.

I loved that challenge as a teacher and therefore thought working individually with students would provide a gift to us both.

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 have a General Elementary Credential, for both California and New York. I have had 20 years of teaching experience

Elementary Math

I am a retired elementary K-8 teacher who has had a great deal of experience with children who have specific learning difficulties.

Painting

I have attended Pratt Institute in New York and have continuously taken art classes throughout my life. I worked as an Art teacher during university to support myself through college. I am still enrolled in art programs.

Political Science

My minor at university was political science. I have remained involved in the political aspects of our country throughout my lifetime I registered voted in Oxford Mississippi and continue to work on campaigns during every election.

Social Studies

As a teacher that taught in grades 4-8, I taught Social Studies at each level. The term Social Studies covers many areas of education from history to the social interaction on cultures and students. It was always enjoyable to integrate all of these disciplines in one subject,"Social Studies". I have a General Elementary Credential, for both California and New York. I have had 20 years of teaching experience

Study Skills

Every teacher must teach study skills in order for her students to be successful. During my teaching career I spent a great deal of time helping students to find the right way for them to be able to succeed in school. We all don't study the same way, so it is necessary to learn what works best for each child. I have a General Elementary Credential, for both California and New York. I have had 20 years of teaching experience
