Recently, I have been asked to write a monthly column for The Beacon, a local advertising magazine in Jupiter, FL.

Though not working this semester, I have been an adjunct professor at PBSC since 2006 where I have taught reading and Education courses. I taught during the spring semester in 2013.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a former Florida Teacher of the Year. I taught fifth grade for seven years. I taught as recently as 2009/2010. I am an award winning elementary principal-National School of Excellence at Purchase School in Harrison, NY.

I have also taught Honors Social Studies at the middle school level. I have extensive tutoring experience. I know how to connect with students and get the most out of them. I can make any topic relevant.

Phonics

I am a former Florida Teacher of the Year. Most of my teaching was at the elementary level. As an award winning elementary principal, I chaired a district-wide language arts committee and brought the whole language reading curriculum to my school. I have taught reading and tutored primary students. Phonemic awareness is critical to learning sounds and developing vocabulary. It's best to learn sounds within real words. It's less isolating and more relevant.

Study Skills

I am a state and national award winning teacher and principal. I have worked at every level from pre-school to graduate school. I am organized, detail oriented and can teach anybody how to take notes.
