I am a veteran teacher and tutor with over 31 years of teaching experience. I have worked in both private and public schools with students in grades Pre-k to Grade 3. I have a masters degree in Special education and have worked with regular and special needs students in a mainstreamed classroom. In addition, I have experience utilizing IEPs to modify instruction for special needs students. Some of the special needs students I have worked with were classified as ADD,ADHD, Communication Impaired, as well as, having a Specific Learning Disability. My teaching and learning methods are based on the individual needs of each student. I am a dedicated, creative, hard working individual who has a genuine passion for teaching and learning. Furthermore, I believe all students can learn if given the chance and the proper instruction that matches their learning style. It gives me great joy to see a struggling child succeed. Although I have used both whole and small group instruction, one on one instruction I feel is always the best way to learn. I would love to help your child achieve success by becoming your child's tutor.

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.

I hold a valid K-6 certification for elementary teaching in both NY & NJ. A teacher with this certification is qualified to teach all subjects in grades K -6. I have been certified to teach grades K-6 since 1975 in NY &1984 in NJ.
Elementary math covers a variety of topics such as number recognition, number value, counting numbers, computation, geometry, money and measurement. Each grade builds upon skills taught at previous levels. For example, students in Kindergarten will learn numbers to 100 and addition and subtraction of numbers up to 10, while in second grade they will learn to regroup to add and subtract up to three digit numbers, as well as, count up to 1000. I have experience teaching elementary math tho grades preK -3 for over 31 years.
Phonics is a subject that teaches the letter sounds of individual letters, blends, vowels etc. It is the foundation for reading. One must learn the phonetic sounds in words in order to read. It is a crucial subject in the the early elementary years. I have over 31 years' experience in teaching phonics to students in grades Pre-Kk-grade 3.
Reading is the process of deciphering words to comprehend the meaning of written passages. In addition, reading comprehension involves finding the main idea, finding supporting details, recognizing the story sequence, as well as, making connections to the text, inferring or predicting what will happen next and drawing conclusions. Like math, reading is a subject that builds on previous knowledge. At the K level children have simple repetitive text and illustrations to help in interpreting the written word., while at the third grade level there are few illustrations and longer text. I have taught reading to grades K-3 for over 31 years.
Spelling is the formal way of writing phonemic sounds correctly. It involves following rules for spelling certain sounds, as well as, adding suffixes and making plurals. I have taught spelling for grades K- 3 for over 31 years.
