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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a K-2 teacher for 29 years and have taught all subjects and all learning styles.
Keeping abreast of current research, collaborating with peers and attending workshops helps me evolve as a teacher. I have had 29 classes of mixed ability children and their test scores and confidence level are a testimony to my skills as a professional. I absolutely love to teach and learn, it is truly a passion. There is nothing in the world that excites me more than when a student understands the tasks at hand.

ESL/ESOL

I have my Masters Degree in ESL from Adelphi University in NY.

Phonics

I have my BA in Education and Master's in ESL. Through my years of experience I have used many different programs for teaching phonics. The most recent is Letterland. I stay abreast of current research areas and new and innovative materials and incorporate them into lesson plans and instructional strategies.
My style is very hands on for teaching phonics and it is helpful to the student when decoding words.

Study Skills

I have assisted students with study skills to help them retain information and to prepare for exams. It is my experience that children tune out when a parent tries to help them with their work. I know this from being a mom and a teacher. I am very good at finding out what your learning style is and adapting lessons that will fit that style.
Many students have trouble focusing on the tasks at hand. With my years of experience and being innovative I have a wonderful way of making students feel confident and successful.
I allow the students to use all of their senses to understand the material. I have my BA in Education and Master's in ESL.

Writing

I received my Masters Degree at Adelphi University in New York. The teaching program is very rigorous and wrote and edited many papers.
