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 an undergraduate degree in Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences from Hofrstra University with a minor in Disability Studies which I obtained in December 2010. After my undergraduate career, I opted out of attending graduate school for Speech Pathology and enrolled in a masters program at Hofstra University in May 2011. In December 2012, I obtained my Masters of Science in Education (M.S.Ed) in Inclusive Early Childhood Special Education. I am dually certified in NY in general education and special education from birth to grade 2. I have since moved to CT and hold a certification here as well with the endorsement code: 113 Integrated Early Childhood/Special Education, Nursery–K–Elementary, 1-3. I have been employed within an urban school system for 2 years and currently teach First Grade.

Elementary Math

I have an MSEd from Hofstra University and 3 years of in classroom teaching experience. I currently work at a STEM school and teach an hour of Math daily to my students.

In my classroom I provide my students with differentiated foundational skills in phonics during their guided reading times. We spend the first 10 minutes working on phonics skills in their 20 minute guided reading block. My students also have word study games and activities that they utilize in their literacy stations to reinforce and build upon their phonics skills. All skills taught are common core aligned as well as the word study activities and games.
