About Geri

I have many years of teaching experience in the public school system. I have taught all levels of Spanish, French and ESL, from preschool up to and including adults. When I was a classroom teacher, I had a 100% success rate with regard to both the French and Spanish Regents exams.

I definitely connect with kids and I find that I generally can turn them around from being a failing or mediocre student to one who does well and is able to maintain their successful strategies even after tutoring has ended.

I am a very hard worker and I carefully plan for every student, writing my own exercises, etc., to assure that each student is being taught what he or she needs to succeed.

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)

Although I have not taught elementary school on a full-time basis, I am NYS certified to teach nursery school through 6th grade. Furthermore, I believe that my many years of teaching ESL to preschool and elementary school children in a public school setting more than qualifies me to tutor at this level.


I am a NYS certified ESL teacher. I have taught all levels, from preschool to adults. I have had a high degree of success with my students.


I am a NY State certified French teacher. I have taught French for many years. Currently, I home tutor in foreign languages for the Longwood School District. I also teach an adult French class at the Huntington Public Library.


I have many years of experience teaching ESL at all levels, from preschool up to and including adults. Since phonics is a large part of teaching ESL, I believe I am qualified.


I have many years experience teaching Regents level Spanish and French, both in a classroom setting and in a one-on-one setting.


I have taught Spanish on all levels, including college level courses, for many years. I am NYS certified and I have been doing home tutoring for the Longwood School District for five years. I have a high success rate and when I was classroom teaching, I 100% of my students passed the Regents for a number of years.

Very Positive Teaching Style — Ms. Geri has a very positive teaching style that combines confidence-building with knowledge. My daughter was further behind in French than I realized. Ms. Geri has outlined areas of priority and has set out to prepare my daughter for her end of year exam. She leaves assignments for her to complete during the week to make the most of time she has to tutor. She is no-nonsense, but kind and fair: a ...
