About Stephanie

First of all, my interest, passion and emphasis are in elementary education. In addition, I am very interested in the growth of children in the age bracket of three to seven. I also, enjoy using as many hands-on activities in my classroom. I enjoy the challenge of helping children reach their full potential. In 2011, I graduated from Manhattanville College; I graduated with a master's degree in literacy (Birth-Grade 6). During this time, I have learned about the intricacies of literacy and the basis of how children learn literacy. Through this program, I have been able to tutor ELL students, tutor students who have difficulties, and do important research.
As a 2nd Grade teacher, the class I feel I benefitted most from was my research class. I did research on media and its impact on students. Through this study, I found out more about my students, and realized that this was a transitional year for them. Some students had moved on to more mature media while others were still interested in the more youthful media. I also realized, that as their teacher I needed to use this interest in media to implement more critical thinking. As a kindergarten teacher, I have really seen the largest growth in my students. Many of my students walk into my classroom in September barely knowing their letters to leaving in July knowing how to read and enjoy reading. I believe that my impact on these children will help them become well-rounded people academically and socially. In my classroom, I use technology to help further my students socially and academically.

For my Undergraduate requirements I needed to take up to Calculus 2 and Axiomatic Geometry.

I have been teaching for 5 years in the Bronx. I spent 1 year teaching 2nd grade and 4 years teaching Kindergarten. I also have tutored 3rd and 6th grade.

I have a Literacy degree. I also teach phonics on a daily basis in my current job.

I aim to provide a learning environment that encourages students to feel safe to express their ideas and thoughts. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, content knowledgeable teacher and tutor.

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.
