Bio

I am experienced in working one-on-one with students in all elementary and middle school grades - particularly math, pre-algebra, spelling, grammar, reading, phonics, and writing. I also work with high school students with algebra I, geometry, language arts, and SAT/ACT math and verbal.

I am experienced in working one-on-one with students in all elementary and middle school grades - particularly math, pre-algebra, spelling, grammar, reading, phonics, and writing. I also work with high school students with algebra I, geometry, language arts, and SAT/ACT math and verbal. I can work with students on school assignments, projects, and homework - or I can provide material to help them master areas of difficulty. I can also help students find clever ways to memorize facts in any school subject.

As a former curriculum developer, I am more than familiar with the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards, Common Core Standards (NY/NJ has adopted these for math and language arts), and how to craft individual learning to best aid the student. Ultimately all students must take and pass these state assessments. While aiding your student move forward, I will also ensure that these standards are addressed.

My unique experiences include working with students in the classroom as a teacher, as a paid private tutor, and as a group and private tutor for a nationally recognized SAT prep company. Additionally, I have volunteered as a tutor for various urban schools. As an undergraduate I created a GEPA 8 (now NJ Ask 7/8) tutoring program where high risk students were tutored weekly for 6 intensive hours. There was a substantial increase - as over 80% of those students passed.

Using my technology background, I have taught classes in MS Office, including MS Access, Excel, Word, PowerPoint and combing programs to make maximum use of the MS Office suite.

My goal would be to make sure your child is poised for educational success by first assessing what your child knows, crafting an individualized plan, and building confidence by using a variety of educational materials and technology, as well as provide a summative progress report you.

I have taught elementary school grades K-3. I have also tutored extensively in grades K-6, in particular with reading, writing, mathematics, spelling, and phonics. Tutoring has happened on a 1-to-1 basis as well as in a group setting (of no more than 8 children). Tutoring in grades 3-6 also focused on the NJ ASK and prep for that test in addition to regular classwork/homework, organization, study skills and reinforcing topics covered in the classroom environment.

I have tutored Algebra I and II for over 10 years in a high school setting. Additionally, as a college student, I tutored other college students who were placed into Algebra I and II (mainly freshmen). I tutor Algebra I and II on a custom basis, starting with beginning concepts to make sure the student fully comprehends the foundations and then move forward to where they currently are in school. It is imperative that students do not fall behind in Algebra I and II because all of the concepts build upon the previous concept.

Thank you for the review!

Awesome Tutor

My daughter started the 9th grade this year and struggled with her Algebra 1 class. I was very concerned and needed help for my daughter who started failing the class. I've met with high-profiled tutors and was not impressed nor satisfied. So, I started searching for websites that were dedicated and had a common goal. I came across the WyzAnt Tutoring site and was impressed. After meeting with our tutor to discuss what was needed and how to reach our goal of passing the course, but importantly being comfortable and not afraid to take on the task. Our Tutor not builded my daughter self-esteem but allow my daughter confidence spread her wings. After several sessions I noticed my daughter attitude changed and interest in the course increased when doing her homework, classwork etc. I seen her grades go from 55% to 78%; increased to the highest of 91%. Wyzant Tutors are sincere, dedicated, hard working, and affordable. THANKS Wyzant!
