Ivy League Educated tutor located in Bergen County (NJ) specializing in:

+HIGH IMPACT WRITING INSTRUCTION for 2nd - 8th Grade Students who want to significantly improve their ability to express their ideas and write syntactically varied sentences which connect and express ideas powerfully. This instruction will be embedded within your child's school assignments to teach him/her to think more critically and express ideas in a more sophisticated manner.

+RESEARCH BASED READING INSTRUCTION (Orton-Gillingham based) for 1st and 2nd graders who are significantly below grade level expectations. This method helps your 1st/2nd grader integrate and understand the rules of READING, WRITING, and SPELLING to approach and exceed grade level proficiency. Please note, this is not a quick fix method but requires a minimum 4-6 month commitment on your part (1x per week).

About Alan
Alan is a dually Certified General Ed(K-8) and Special Ed teacher (NJ and MD). Trained in the Orton-Gillingham reading intervention method, Teachers' College Reading Workshop method. Alan works with his students to set short-term goals along a continuum of foundational to rigorous skills. Kids enjoy working with Alan because he incorporates multi-sensory activities and games along with very focused skill building activities. Students learn the skills and are also able to self-monitor their reading/writing/spelling and explain the "whys" of the skills they retain.

This past summer, I passed the Level IV Ulpan at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. This level is the completion of the grammar proficiency. I speak every day in Hebrew and can converse easily.
