About Mark

I have taught reading and social studies in a NY city elementary school for 15 years. I am a NY State licensed reading teacher for grades K-12. I can assess your child's reading level and determine their strengths and weaknesses. I encourage my students to ask questions and to have an open dialogue. I like to review and reinforce what they already know and address their weaknesses. I have taught reading and social studies in a NY city elementary school for 15 years.

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.

American History

As an American citizen I try to stay informed of our nations history. My favorite American story is about Lewis and Clark, the great 19th century American explorers. I was a social studies teacher for many years and tried to spark students interest in this subject and the importance of having a knowledge of the basics and encouraging them to learn more.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a licensed reading teacher, grades k-12. I have also been an AIS (academic intervention services) teacher where I taught reading and math. I establish a good rapport with students and encourage them to improve their reading and math skills.

Elementary Math

For several years I served as an AIS instructor in an elementary school in New York City where I assisted students in reading and math. I enjoy teaching students the math basics and can also show them different ways of solving a problem. I am in favor of making drawings, pictures, and using coins to explain a math problem and solving it.

Elementary Science

Although I was not a science teacher during my career I did include experiments , analysis, and observation in my lessons. For example, during a lesson on the Erie Canal in New York State, we set up a model canal and lock system to see how boats navigated the canal sections that were at different elevations. In a geography lesson we may have drawn the heights of the tallest mountains in the Himalaya Range and discussed the effects of altitude on humans. I enjoy science and feel confident that I can assist students in their elementary science courses.

English

As a long time elementary school teacher I know the importance of laying a good foundation for reading and writing. Expanding vocabulary, improving reading endurance, and knowing the conventions of writing are essential skills that students need to acquire. Teaching students the basic 5 paragraph essay is a good way to help them organize their thoughts and get them written down.

Geography

Geography is on of my favorite subject areas. I was a social studies teacher for many years and almost always displayed a map of the United States and of the world. I try to make geography fun by asking trivia questions about various locations in the world.

Prealgebra

I have tutored students in prealgebra. I do not shy away from math and feel confident I can assist students with algebra problems. I prefer that students not use a calculator but if it aids their understanding and solving problems I would allow it.

Reading

I am a licensed reading teacher, grades k-12. Although technology is ubiquitous in the world, reading is still an essential skill necessary to navigate our current lifestyle and civilization. I encourage everyone to read on a daily basis whatever interests them-fiction, nonfiction, current events, sports, novels, short stories, and classics.

Social Studies

For many years I was a social studies teacher in New York City. I placed a special emphasis on geography and incorporated that into many of my lessons. Social studies is really the study of how people and cultures relate to one another across continents and oceans throughout history. Learning about the past gives a better understanding of how the current world order exists.
