About Esther

I have a BA in English and Latin from New York University, an MA in English and Remedial Education from Columbia University and a New York State and New York City teaching license. For over three decades, I have been teaching and tutoring students of all ages and all levels of English competence, including non-English speakers.

My specialties are reading fluency and comprehension, vocabulary enrichment, and English as a second language. I also teach my students how to write clearly, concisely, and coherently. I include study and organizational skills in my teaching, since my goal is for my students to become independent learners.

After I pinpoint problem areas, I use interactive computer programs on which students practice the skills I am teaching. These programs make lessons more rigorous and enjoyable.

When you sign up for lessons with me, you get not only a tutor, but a mentor as well. Your success is just as important to me as it is to you.

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.

ADHD

I have a Master's degree in learning disabilities from Teachers College, Columbia University in New York. This course included methodology in teaching children with ADD and ADHD, such as concentration skills and the Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory approach. I have taught students with this condition for over three decades. Most of my experience has been teaching in small groups, but I have also taught individual students who have an attention deficit with or without hyperactivity.

Dyslexia

I have a BA in English and Latin from New York University, an MA in English and Remedial Education from Columbia University and a New York State and New York City teaching license.

These programs help me pinpoint problem areas, monitor progress, and make lessons both rigorous and enjoyable.
