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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a New York State certified elementary teacher, N-6. In addition, I have New York State certification in Reading/Literacy, Pre-K-12. At the university level, I taught in the undergraduate and graduate programs in teacher education and literacy.

Grammar

I have an extensive background in the Reading Reform Foundation Program that focuses on grammar and structure of language to help students become proficient in their reading and writing skills, as well as comprehension strategies important to academic achievement in all subjects.

Phonics

I have taught in nursery programs such as Head Start. My literacy certification involved training in miscue analysis, Reading Recovery and intervention programs for early learners. I have extensive background in children's literature and beginning reading programs.

Spelling

Spelling skills are learned through listening, speaking and oral language development. Students improve in reading and writing in contextual settings in academic subjects as they learn to practice and integrate specialized vocabulary and concepts in school work.

Study Skills

My teaching experiences involve collaborative teaching across content area subjects of science and social studies. These subjects require specialized vocabulary and concept knowledge, not as prevalent in narrative texts. Lacking this background may impede learning of expository/explanatory texts, which require study skills, such as table of contents, index, glossary, main topics, footnotes, organization, skimming, scanning, summarizing, note taking, outlining, library/information literacy skills, etc..
