About Cecilia

Hi, I love to see kids succeed and advance in their studies. Having them feel good about their accomplishments as well as moving them forward is important. I've been working in the field of education since 2004. With an MA in education in grades 1-6, New York State Certification and the ability to teach Spanish I've enjoyed developing reading skills, practicing math skills, introducing new material in both and teaching Spanish from pre-k to adults!

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.

Study Skills

I have a Masters in Education and have been in the classroom setting since 2004. The past three years I have been working at the high school level. I am very organized, diligent, patient and I have a lot of patience. Related to study skills and my tutoring methods for this particular student, it appears staying on task, following a to do list, making sure papers are organized by subject fate in separate folders, writing out index cards may be useful, I need to meet the student first, with math, I would have the student "teach me" the concepts, allowing for the student to strengthen send practice the particular math skill.
