About Rudy

I have been a fourth-grade teacher in Brookfield, CT for the past 14 years. Before that I taught 5th grade for three years in the Bronx. I love teaching to a whole class and joking around with the lessons (so long as we meet the lesson objective), but I find the most rewarding part of teaching is working in a small group or one-on-one. I like to talk with students about the material to get their thoughts out in the open. Usually,before they realize it, they have given a lucid and in-depth answer. I love seeming that "Ah ha!" moment on a person's face when they start to "get it".

Although I've been teaching for 17 years I've never tutored before. In the summer I've taught people to play golf as well (which is a great way to work on elementary math skills). I would probably set it up lessons so that it would be just like conferences I have in my classroom with my present students. Of course we can talk about what works best for the person I would be working with and adjust the structure accordingly. I think if you could talk to the parents and students I've had in the past, they would say, "Mr. C. is cool because he makes school fun, but he still expects his students to try their hardest and have respect for themselves."

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.

Reading

I have been a 4th grade teacher in Brookfield for 14 years. Before that I taught 5th grade in The Bronx. I have taught reading, writing, and math. I have also taught science and social studies. I am very familiar with the expectations for elementary school curriculum and I can help with organizing and elaborating writing responses to literature at higher grade levels.
