I have successfully taught Reading and Writing for fifteen years. My students have always been able to improve their Reading comprehension as well as do very well on State Examinations.
In addition, I am fully certified in Wilson Reading System (the equivalent of Orton-Gillingham). WRS is an intensive Tier 3 program for students in grades 2-12 and adults with word-level deficits who are not making sufficient progress through their current intervention, have been unable to learn with other teaching strategies and require multisensory language instruction, or who require more intensive structured literacy instruction due to a language-based learning disability, such as dyslexia.
This training has equipped me with the ability to break reading and spelling down into smaller skills involving letters and sounds, and then building on these skills over time. I use sight, hearing, touch and movement to help students connect language with letters and words. As a result, students gain decoding and encoding skills to the level of mastery and receive instruction in phonemic awareness, decoding and word study, sight word recognition, spelling, fluency, vocabulary, oral expressive language development and reading comprehension.
I graduated from New York University and Lehman College with a GPA of 3.5. My degrees have given me the strategies, methodologies and tools to teach reading to students of all ages.
I am a friendly, motivated, effective instructor who will work incessantly to ensure all my students learn. I have a very strong work ethic. I am flexible in regards to time.

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.
I have a Masters in ESL and 12 years of teaching experience. I have taught students from all over the world, different ages and for different needs such as communicating in a business setting. I am warm and patient.
I have a Bachelor and Masters degree in education. I also possess a very difficult to earn certification in Wilson Reading System as well as 12 years of experience as an English Language Arts teacher. I have also trained teachers so they in turn can become master teachers. I have always been able to form strong relationships with my students where they feel safe, cared for and most of all, helped in reaching their goals.
