About Adam

Private teacher available for home schooling and after school tutoring. Specialize in reading, writing , and math through 10th grade. Expert ACT prep and the new Florida assessment readiness.

I am a Florida State Teacher, certified in Language Arts grades 5-9, Exceptional Student Education K-12 including ASD and Gifted, Reading K-12. I have taught Middle and High School English and Math through 12th grade.

As a parent of a struggling learner, I understand the needs of struggling learners. Through my career as a teacher in Broward County, I have seen much student learning potential lost, because of so many changes in the curriculum, and the State standards. My teaching style focuses on the foundation of learning: the "3 R's"

I have a flexible cancellation policy, but ask that any missed appointments be rescheduled.

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.

ACT Reading

As a High school remedial reading teacher, I worked with struggling readers to prepare them to succeed on the FCAT, SAT, and the ACT.

Algebra 1

My professional experience includes working with students who struggle with higher level math. I find that most students are more than capable, they lack the basic math principles: ie- adding and subtracting positive and negative integers, working with fractions, decimals and percents's. What I do is focus on the basics, then show them how to apply it to the higher level classes like algebra 1 and geometry.

ASVAB

I am a former U.S. Army Staff Sergeant and high school English and math teacher. Special duties included working with soldiers to improve ASVAB scores in preparation for advanced duties.

English

I am Florida State Certified in Middle school language arts and have taught professionally in Broward County. I am up to date with the new Florida assessment tests for grades K-12, and the new emphasis on writing. The focus of my lessons is on sentence structure and essay writing.

Prealgebra

I am a former high school algebra and intermediate algebra teacher as well as U.S. Army instructor - ASVAB Success coach.

Reading

I have a Florida Professional Certificate Middle Grades Language arts, Reading k-12, ESE K-12. ESOL K-12

SAT Reading

Broward county high school reading teacher, SAT and ACT prep coach

Special Needs

I hold a Bachelors degree in Exceptional Student Education. I am currently ESE certified in Florida.
