About Stephanie

Hello- I am a former Special Education Teacher for grades 6-12. I have taught elementary/middle school math, geometry and Algebra I, Reading, English, Study Skills, ESL, and the Social Sciences. I have experience tutoring SAT Prep, children with special needs, all elementary/middle school subjects, high school Math, English and Reading. I am also a former Varsity Volleyball and Softball Coach and have worked as an Outdoor Adventure Specialist. I also teach fitness, yoga and meditation. I believe in addressing the holistic needs of each child. I try to get to the bottom or root cause of each child's needs. For example, a child who struggles in math may not only need tutoring, but may also need strategies to cope with the anxiety that arises at the mere mention of the "M" word.

My teaching style is very relaxed, compassionate and infused with humor. Contact me if you're looking for a tutor who will get to know your child and is equipped to handle a myriad of opportunities.

Thank You,
Stephanie

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.

Autism

I have a graduate teacher's certificate in Special Needs and four years teaching Special Needs children, which included several students on the Autism Spectrum. A portion of my student teaching took place in a school for children with Autism in Newark, NJ, where I learned Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). In addition to the students in my classes that were classified on the spectrum, I also tutored a couple of elementary aged students with Autism in reading and math.

As a trained Wilson Reading Specialist, I taught middle school students phonics, as well as, high school students who were reading below grade level.
