About Florentina

Hello my name is Florentina! I am currently a school counselor and have been in the education field for over ten years. I have experience working with children in kindergarten to 8th grade. I taught 4th grade for eight years. I am familiar with Reader's and Writer's Workshop Models and various Math programs. I also have experience with test prep, study and organizational skills. I look forward to helping your child by determining their learning style and meeting those needs to help them find success!

My own personal education consisted of and undergraduate degree from LaSalle University in Philadelphia. I was dual major psychology and education. I then continued at the University of Pennsylvania earning my M.S. Ed in School and Mental Health Counseling.

I look forward to meeting with your child to help strengthen their skills in any and all subject areas.

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.

Study Skills

As a classroom teacher with many years experience, I always begin my year introducing study skills so that students know what is needed to be a successful student not only in my class but in the future. The skills I stressed were listening in class, having a planner to write down homework assignments, taking notes, using study guides effectively, outlining chapter notes and techniques for studying for tests and exams. I currently implement a study skills program in both of my schools. We cover different strategies using various hands on activities. Then we apply the taught study skill strategy to whatever we are learning in class.
