About Darlene

My name is Darlene. I have always been a dedicated student and my academic record shows this. I graduated magna cum laude from St. Francis University and magna cum laude from Adelphi University, where I received my Masters. I have many years of work experience that started initially as a Math teacher. After I left teaching I spent a good number of years raising a family and running a Physics Publishing Center. After retiring from that career, I spent the next five years taking care of my ill husband, who recently passed away. During these many years I tutored privately and enjoyed my own child and many nieces and nephews. I was always the one everyone called in need of help with work. I love teaching and tutoring because of the gratification I received when I felt that I made a difference and that the student was "enlightened." This is especially difficult with Math, since many students see this as a dry, challenging area. But I always try to make it FUN and meaningful.

When we work together you can be certain that we will "connect" and that I will be able to make a REAL difference. I am very flexible and can adapt my approach and style to fit your needs.

My qualifications extend beyond Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. I am very good at teaching Math to the lower grades, like Grades 4-8, and English Grammar, and the many elementary level subjects. My original certification (which has expired) was K-6, and Math 7-8. During my years in Publishing, I edited high-level physics manuscripts, with an emphasis on good grammar and understandable English.

I think my best unique quality is that, in spite of my "age," I am a lot of fun to be with and to work with. (I know it should be written as "with whom to work," but let's not be too formal!). I will make the lessons STICK to you and you will enjoy the process.

Please contact me and we can give it a try! I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I'm very flexible with hours and timing, since I have no small children any longer. Thanks for reading my information. Looking forward to hearing from you!

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.

Career Development

I received an MBA, graduating magna cum laude. I also ran a Publishing Division with a budget of approximately $70 million. I was responsible for a staff of 375 employees, with approximately 12 direct reports. I orchestrated multiple reorganizations, developing new jobs for new candidates. Often, these individuals held prior positions in the organization, but were trained to fill new jobs. Creating job descriptions to match the needs of the organization with the skill set of the employee sometimes was successful, but sometimes it was not. This was common as technology had a vast impact on the Publishing industry over the past decades. This career lasted 30 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I majored in Elementary education K-6, and did student teaching in this area. I received outstanding grades while I pursued my B.S. in Education, graduating magna cum laude. I also tutored a great deal in this area, specializing, not only in Math, but also in ALL subject areas including English grammar, spelling, and reading.
