About Adam

I have been a teacher for the past 15 years and the thing I love the most about the profession is helping young people reach their goals. I am a certified Social Studies teacher who also holds certifications in Students with Disabilities and Physical Education. I love helping people reach their goals and being part of somebody's success story. I have had great success with all types of learners, improving student scores and performance.

I specialize in all the Social Studies, especially Global Studies, World History, and US History. I can help students who have had some difficulties with the dreaded DBQ's and Thematic essays. I also can help in all aspects of writing. I have had great success in helping students who are struggling to pass Regents exams or assist students who wanted to improve their grades. I know specific tricks about the US History and Global Studies Regents Exams that I pass on to my students. I also have graded the Regents Exams and know exactly what teachers are looking for when grading the exam. I have also tutored SAT Subject tests for US History and World History and the AP Exams.

I have 15 years experience working with Special Education Students. I have worked with students with learning disabilities, emotional disturbances and many other "disabilities". I have had great success with students in these situations. I am fair, have high expectations, and use humor and personal experience to help understand the entire child.

I am flexible with time and prefer weekends and nights.
I am willing to do some traveling and tutor in the nearest public library or your home.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve academic success.
