About Ismael

First, thank you for your consideration in working with your child. I am currently an elementary teacher working with 2nd grade students. I consider myself most qualified in teaching mathematics and phonemic awareness. I am also finishing my internship requirements to receive my Professional Diploma as a nationally accredited School Psychologist. My education and experience has prepared me to accommodate and differentiate instruction for students of varying levels and learning. Within my classroom I provide activities to stimulate students, allowing for all learners to become engaged and motivated.

I have researched reading instruction extensively and understand the multiple components which are necessary for students to become proficient, accurate, and motivated readers. I have administered and analyzed over 200 Developmental Reading Assessments (DRA-2), the most common reading assessments administered. My experience with the DRA will allow me to establish goals, interventions, and monitor progress.

In my years of teaching I have had to provide instruction aligned with the common core. I am most proficient in using the Common Core at the 2nd -5th grade levels. It is important to have lessons which are aligned with the Common Core to ensure that the goals of our tutoring sessions are aligned with the grade level goals and instruction occurring within the classroom.

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.

Common Core

I am currently a certified to teach kindergarten to fifth grade in the state of New Jersey. I was a member of a partnership with Steven Institute of Technology, creating highly qualified mathematics teachers focusing on the common core curriculum. In my 4 years teaching I've had to align my lesson plans to match the common core curriculum to ensure students are prepared for state standardized tests. I have a working knowledge of how the common core develops through the grade levels and I am capable to creating a learning experience for students to reflect the progression of the common core through the grade levels.

Elementary Math

I have experience with the common core curriculum and I will be able to align the goals of our tutoring sessions with the grade level goals of the common core. As a member of NJPRIME, a partnership with Stevens Institute, I played an integral role with a team which analyzed and modified mathematics lessons based on the grade level goals of the students. In working with NJPRIME I developed strategies to differentiate lessons to the diverse needs of students.

Phonics

In my preparation to become a certified school psychologist, I have completed extensive research on the importance of phonological awareness. I understand and I am capable of teaching phonemic segmentation, grapheme-phoneme correspondence, alphabet knowledge, and concepts of words. As a teacher, I have learned to administer and analyze several reading assessment, such as the DRA-2 and I have administered and analyzed the CTOPP. I also have experience in working with students diagnosed with Dyslexia. I have a playbook of several research validated interventions which I am familiar in implementing.
