About Nalini

Hello Parents and Students, I am currently working at a small diverse K-12 Private School, in Lake County. I teach Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Science at Elementary Level. Although, since it is a Private school, I also tutor middle to high students at my school for one hour, four days a week. My students include a broad spectrum of disabilities. This sounds like I have a lot on my plate, but all my life I have been multi-tasking, and this is what drives and motivates of me to learn, and there is no greater joy to help others achieve their own learning goals

I am new to Wyzant, but I have an extensive and diverse background in Tutoring. In fact, my tutoring experience dated back to 1999, in New York City, when I was in doing my Masters at NYU, with a program, called Success for All, targeting Reading Literacy for inner city Elementary Schools. I knew then tutoring was rewarding because watching the students accelerated in their learning abilities and confidence propelled me towards the educational sector

I was a well qualified K-12 ESE Florida Certified Teacher, who taught at two different Middle Schools for nearly seven years, specializing in English, Reading Literacy, and Language Arts to a diversity of students. Following that, I tutored Middle-aged to Elementary-aged students, with the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT program for six years, both Special Needs and Main Stream Education population. I specialized in tutoring Language Arts, English, Reading Literacy, Writing, etc. I am qualified in 20 different areas with Wyzant to tutor Students or Adults in subject areas, such as English, Reading, Proofreading, Career Development, Standardized Tests Skills, Public Speaking, etc.

I am currently working to renew my K-12 Florida Teaching License. I also worked during my tutoring years, with CT-McGraw Hill (Dyployit) as a Test Evaluator to hand score Reading, Math, Science, Writing, standardized tests for Florida and other states as well. Moreover, I have a BA and MA with majors in Psychology and Sociology, that really helps me in my interactions.. In addition, I have one more class complete the requirement to acquire the Florida Reading Endorsement Certification.

My specialization in Education Psychology from my MA has taught me how learning styles are unique to each individual. I will monitor student's performance and provide weekly progress reports for long term tutoring. In addition, I am available anytime, day or night, to provide updates during the week, via texts, emails, or phone calls, if needed. I consider myself to have a great repertoire not just with students, but, also with parents, from experience.

Parents and Students, please free contact me to discuss your tutoring needs. I am available to tutor Monday through Friday 5 to 10 pm. I am very flexible on the time and locations. Base rate is $40.00 per hour and I am also available for discount on group rate. Also, there is 24 hour cancellation policy. Thank you for considering me for being your tutor and I look forward to hearing from you, and working with you in achieving your goals.

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.

Aspergers

During my six years of teaching and six of tutoring experience being an K-12 ESE teacher. I had the chance to work with Middle and Elementary aged students with Aspergers. During my teaching career, I was ESE Homeroom teacher, so I had to monitor all students with disabilities, including students with Aspergers in all aspects. Tutoring with the No Child Left Behind Act enabled me to work with students with Aspergers on a one on one learning experience, thus enriching my knowledge further more. I also work closely with parents and administrators, and had many training classes/seminars on disabilities that included Aspergers. I have also developed knowledge about Aspergers Syndrome during my BA and MA studies because of my Social Science background, and my Specialization in Educational Psychology. I am also currently working to renew my K-12 ESE FL teaching certification, and have recently completed my renewal course work on Students' with Disabilities, with a refresher information on Aspergers. I feel I am qualified, experienced and knowledgeable to teach students with Aspergers.

Career Development

I have a BA and a MA, so I have wide and broad range of academics in higher education. I was also K-12 teacher for six years and Certified Teacher in the Tutoring arena for six years. During my teaching career, one of my responsibilities was incorporating teaching Career Development as a Language Arts teacher. It was full emphasis to get students to focus on education, college and prepping them for the professional world. I also have 18 years of diverse experience in Corporate America, while working in NYC. All together I am confident and qualified to teach Career Development. Thank you!

Common Core

I have 12 years of teaching and tutoring as a K-12 Florida Certified teacher and currently working on renewing my license. For six years, during my teaching career my core subject was Language Arts, Reading Literacy and was responsible for 6-12 readiness standardized testing. When I transition to tutoring with No Child Left Act, I spend six years as Certified teacher tutoring K-6 students in Readiness for Reading and Math for FL standardized testing. Teaching and tutoring Florida Standardized Testing like Common Core is my specialization and expertise. I also worked for 5 years with CTB McGraw-Hill as a Testing Score Evaluator for Florida standardized tests. I am very confident and qualified to tutor Common Core to students. Thank you!

Dyslexia

During my teaching and tutoring experience, I had the chance to work with many students with Dyslexia, especially during Tutoring because of the large number of students that fell in this category. I was given access to many seminars and training classes with emphasis on Dyslexia. I also enjoyed the opportunity and the challenge I had during my Tutoring job because of the individual engaging of students' learning, and observing their progress. I have studied Dyslexia during my BA and MA because both of my degrees are in the Social Sciences, with my MA having a specialization in Educational Psychology. I am also currently working to renew my K-12 ESE Florida teaching certification, and have recently completed my renewal course work on Students' with Disabilities, with refresher academics on Dyslexia. Therefore, I am experienced, confident and qualified to tutor students with Dyslexia.
