About Naomi

I am a kind, warm-hearted, intelligent tutor with 5+ years of experience. I will soon receive teacher licensure in the state of Massachusetts, after completing Brandeis' Master of Arts in Teaching program. I have tutored middle and high school students in writing and SAT prep, and I also worked in the University of Maryland's Writing Center, where I helped college-age students with writing for all subjects. During my student-teaching this past year, I taught 7th and 8th grade English, which included grammar, reading comprehension, critical thinking, and writing. I have also worked with younger students: I was a teaching assistant in a 3rd grade Judaics classroom for one school year, and I worked one-on-one with students who struggled with Hebrew reading, writing and vocabulary.

I love tutoring because of the one-on-one connections with students. Each student is unique and talented in his or her own way, and it is up to me to bring out those talents. In addition, I can give each student exactly what he or she needs, without having to worry about a classroom of students at the same time. Tutoring is the ultimate individualized education, and I am dedicated to helping each student improve and succeed.

I believe that each student deserves an equal chance to learn, and I use multiple modes of teaching to reach my students. I provide charts, pictures, graphic organizers, outlines, and diagrams. I model a skill, guide the student in completing it, and then let the student proceed on his or her own. I provide as many examples as necessary, and give ample time for discussion and questions about the topic. I easily adjust my plan in order to make sure the student has mastered a skill.

I look forward to hearing from you and beginning our work together! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a lesson.

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.

Bible Studies

I am qualified to teach Bible Studies because I have studied the Bible for many years. I began my studies as a child in Jewish day School, which I attended for 11 years. After college, I spent 15 months studying Jewish texts in Jerusalem. In addition, I attend synagogue weekly and study the Torah every week.
