Bio

Hello out there Long Island parents!

I am a certified elementary education teacher in kindergarten through sixth grade and I am also a mother of three children ages 8, 3 and 1. If anyone knows how to liven up learning and banish that "lump in the throat" feeling, it's me alright - from phonics to essay writing, and learning how to count through algebra, I've done it all both in the classroom and as a parent. I excel in thinking of creative and fun ways to teach kids and I succeed in this...

Hello out there Long Island parents!

I am a certified elementary education teacher in kindergarten through sixth grade and I am also a mother of three children ages 8, 3 and 1. If anyone knows how to liven up learning and banish that "lump in the throat" feeling, it's me alright - from phonics to essay writing, and learning how to count through algebra, I've done it all both in the classroom and as a parent. I excel in thinking of creative and fun ways to teach kids and I succeed in this with my own third grader each night across all subjects.

What sets me apart from other tutors you wonder??

Well for starters, I have been teaching in an inclusion classroom working with kids every day for six years. Kids who, just as I once did in math (yes, I had a tutor in sixth grade), are struggling to make sense of reading, writing, math and science, kids who get frustrated easily and shut down, insisting they just can't do it. As a teacher, I have been extensively trained to help these children to overcome their challenges using a multitude of delivery teaching methods that are highly successful. I am also very creative and make great color coded visual charts with your child's help to hang on your wall. My fridge is currently decorated in "Distributive Property Decor" and the tilting earth with changing seasons. I also love to make up funny songs, teach you and your child math games that you can do together, act out word problems, and continually reinforce the big ideas so that your child starts to see how all the concepts that they are learning are tied together.

Because I know first hand the pressures that are being placed on kids this year with the common core and the testing, not only from a teaching perspective in NYC, but also as a parent, I am careful to mix the test wording and questioning into my lessons so as to prevent a mass "teach to the test" stress at the end. I also have been a state test grader for the past two years, taken out of my classroom for six days to grade student responses on both the math and ELA tests. This gives me an inside knowledge of exactly what your child does and does not need to show on the written part of the exams.

One thing I promise is that your child will enjoy learning with me!

Sincerely,
Alison
