About Fran

Hello, When working with a student I start off with asking lots of questions. Specifically to find out what their needs are. I want to know both their strengths and their weakness so that I can develop a plan of action to support them in where they struggle. Every student learns differently and I teach from their best abilities. I incorporate many different techniques to be sure each student receives the best support possible.

I have been working with children for 10+ years specifically on communication, confidence, cooperation, and collaboration. This further supports the ability to learn academically. Building on the 4 C's of learning students excel in many ways. Having the ability to communicate their needs, working with others well, and having confidence creates many openings for learning in all areas. I look for the best in my students, and begin with their strengths to develop the areas where they need growth.

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.

ADHD

I have worked with my son for 15 years. He was severely ADHD up until age 12. I worked with his teachers, and learned how to work with him. During this time I was a substitute teacher and a TA working with ADD/ADHD/ODD students.

Common Core

I have been working in public schools for 8 years. I work with students on common core everyday. I am currently working with students k-5.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working as a substitute teacher for K-6 for 8 years, and as a Teacher Assistant for K-5 for 5 years. I am certified in LLI, and have used Learning A-Z with many of my pull out students for the last two years.

Phonics

As a teachers assistant I worked with students on a pull out basis. My students were kindergarteners and first graders. We worked only on phonics for 5 months.

Public Speaking

As an performer for 15 years I was on stage all the time speaking. As a direct sales consultant I spoke as a demonstrator, and I was also a trainer to large groups. As a teacher I speak all the time to groups

Reading

In the classroom have worked with below level reading students for 5yrs. LLI-The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention System (LLI) is a supplementary intervention designed for children who find reading and writing difficult. LLI is designed to bring children quickly up to grade-level competency—in 14 to 18 weeks on average. Learning A-Z is another resource I have worked with, and there is also a Guided Reading Program that is a great resource as well.

Theater

I have a BFA in Speech and Theatre. I was a performance major, and studied in numerous NYC studios. I worked as an actor for 10 years and have taught acting to children and teens for 15 years.
