About Roberta

I have been employed by Dade County Public Schools continuously since 1987 and prior to that I worked for the New York City Public School system.

Currently I teach American history and world history, and I am also a National Board Certified school library media specialist. In the past I have taught Advanced Placement U.S. history as well as European history. As a media specialist I am a wonderful resource for teaching reference and research skills, and I am an expert in writing school research papers and creating school projects. I can help students improve their study skills as well.

Having raised four children and having worked with middle and high school students for the past 30 years I understand young people and have developed an excellent rapport with them. It is important that students understand whatever it is they are studying and I make certain that subject matter is thoroughly explained.

I am able to tutor in a convenient location; at your home, my home or at a public library, or university library.

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.

Microsoft Windows

I have been computer literate for the past 15 years and have worked on both PC's and Mac. As a National Board Certified Media Specialist, one of my jobs is to teach students how to write research papers and other documents using Windows. Not only am I proficient in Windows per se, but I excel at teaching Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publisher and Works.

For the past 10 years or so, my students have been doing projects for their classes at the high schools I have taught in, after my lessons. Additionally, I have taught faculty and staff how to use these programs. I can teach you too!

Social Studies

I am certified to teach social studies in grades 6-12 in the state of Florida. As an undergraduate student at New York University, I majored in social studies and have taught all of the subjects over the course of my teaching career (25 years). Additionally, for 7 years I was the chairperson of the social studies department in a large Dade County public high school.
I was the Advanced Placement United States history and Advanced Placement European history teacher at the same school.

I have taught social studies on all levels from the most basic through honors and A.P. to students with no prior knowledge and to those with advanced knowledge. I am able to teach the concepts as well as specifics, essay writing, map skills, and how to respond to document based questions.

Study Skills

I teach organizational skills, time management skills, note taking, graphic organizing, writing paragraphs, essays, bibliography (MLA and APA styles) school projects, the research process, research papers, proofreading, etc.
