Thank you Julie :-D

Counting the hours till I see Texas this afternoon. We both surf through the mini lessons I prepare for her at her own pace, and she just loves them and applies the gained knowledge immediately into the exercises and problems she has to solve.

Best of the Best!

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 Math

Deep content knowledge and critical thinking in Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry, and Trigonometry.

Algebra 1

I am certified in Math grades P-K through 12 and taught Common Core Coordinate Algebra in 2012-2014.

Algebra 2

I am an expert in Quadratic Functions; Right Triangle, Trigonometry; Circles and Spheres; Piecewise, Exponential, and Inverse Functions; Statistics; and much more.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in Early Childhood Education (P-5), and Middle Grades (4-8). I helped my rising 7th grade step-son in all subjects from kindergarten to 6th grade. I tutored students in both elementary grades and middle grades in Reading, Language Arts, Math, and Science in the past years.

Geometry

I am at expert level in both plane and solid geometry, including identification of geometric shapes, measurement, calculating area and volume, principles of angles, the Pythagorean theorem, trigonometry, and much more.

ISEE

I am certified in English (Reading Comprehension, Language Arts) grades P-8.
I am certified in Mathematics (Arithmetic, PreAlgebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Probabilities, Statistics) grades P-12. I have taught students English and Mathematics in different settings.

Praxis

I am certified in Math (P-5, 4-8, 6-12) pursuant to passing all of the corresponding GACE tests in Mathematics. I am knowledgeable in all of the Common Core Standards, and I have taught CC Coordinate Algebra for the past two years. The PRAXIS 5161 test content matches the new Common Core Standards which are a crystal clear representation of the old standards with more and much closer connections to real-life examples. I embrace Project-Based-Learning, which I believe is the future in learning Math and Science in every classroom and by every student.

Prealgebra

I am certified in Mathematics grades P-5, 6-8, 9-12.
I am an expert in working with numbers (place value, whole, decimals, fractions); operations with numbers; Geometry (plane or 2D; volume and measurement) and much more.

Precalculus

I have a deep knowledge of the 2015-16 GSE for Precalculus. I also tutor in Calculus, in preparation for college admission.

SAT Math

Expertise in Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Probability, Statistics, and more. Excellent critical thinking skills, as well as great ability to analyze and solve problems in Mathematics.

Spanish

I learned Spanish in Romania, starting in the first grade until I graduated from high school. I visited Spain on various occasions, and I lived in the community of students at the University of Salamanca, this being the peak of my cultural experience in Spain.

Special Needs

I worked with the special needs population since 2007 in day care centers. I have a Masters of Arts Teaching degree in Special Education from NGU (former NGCSU), which I obtained in 2011. I have three years of teaching and tutoring experience with special needs students. I am very patient, open, joyful and build a close rapport quickly. I work with students connecting academics to their areas of interest in their personal lives, thus making school work more pleasant to them. I teach them communication skills and study skills. Last and most important, my step-son is 12 years old and has Downs Syndrome. He actually changed my life towards education in 2005.

Study Skills

While teaching regular ed students as well as special ed students, I always approach the study skills necessary for success in any academic area. Also, I teach study skills for quizzes, tests, exams.

TEAS

For TEAS Reading and English, I am certified grades P-8. I took graduate level courses at NGU, writing research papers in my Special Education courses.
For TEAS Mathematics and Science, I am certified grades P-12. I am able to teach the concepts and skills needed to pass the TEAS test.
