Pace University (Master's)
I have been an elementary teacher in the traditional classroom setting for six years, and have supplemented my experience with one-on-one tutoring and homeschooling children. I have taught students aged from 8 months to 80 years old in a variety of subjects.
Originally from New York, I moved down to sunny Florida almost three years ago, mostly for the weather. My younger brother is autistic, along with a string of other diagnoses, so I am comfortable helping any child/teen/adult with any needs. I have traveled to five continents over the past decade because I love learning about different cultures and experiencing new things with new people.
My teaching philosophy, in a nutshell, is to empower each student in a positive environment so they can be successful in life.

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.
I have a brother who has been diagnosed with ADD and ADHD, along with a plethora of other things. I have been in classrooms for 6 years, and there have been children in each who fit this description. I work with them by using short word phrases, refocus them continually as needed, and present them with short lessons to keep them engaged and interested.
I currently teach in a school where part of the student population consists of children with this diagnosis. Each child behaves differently, so we treat each child differently.
My younger brother was diagnosed with autism, so I grew up with it. I also currently teach children who fall on the spectrum. Each child needs individual and varied instructions, but they receive it so they can achieve their potential.
I am a Catholic who was raised by a devout family and attended private religious schools from K-12. I know the Bible and the Catholic Catechism.
I am able to assist with cooking. I have not had college culinary courses, but was brought up in a kitchen and can make almost anything. I love cooking and know many techniques.
I have a Master's in Elementary Education and have current certified teaching degrees from NY, MA, and FL. I have taught in schools for 6 years.
I have worked with children aged 2 and up with Phonics in a variety of workbooks and hand on activities. I learned how to read with a phonetic based program.
I received a religious education at a Catholic school from grades K-12. I also took World Religions and studied different cultures and religions in college.
I grew up with a brother and two cousins who each had a differnt set of special needs. I worked at a school for 2 years for children with behavioral, emotional, and social problems. I am able to work with and look past any needs to help accommodate the student and help them work to the best of their ability.
I have taught study skills to middle school, high school, and college students. I earned a 3.7 GPA in college. It's all about learning each person's specific niche and working with it to achieve their goals.
I was Assistant Director of a Swim Camp for 6 years in NY. I taught swim classes for those six years to all ages. I was on my college Swim Team.
