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.

I am a current NYCDOE U.S. History teacher. My Regents passing rate is 92% and the city wide average is 55-70%.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked and tutored children K-6 for over 12 years. As an after school counselor I tutored and helped students with their homework. As a College student I continued to tutor students in academics and in music education. After earning my bachelors I continued My passion for working with children and became a teacher for the New York City department of education. I teach four classes per day, five days a week and tutor students with any work they need help with after schools. Through my learned experiences and through earning a masters in education, I feel I am qualified to tutor in this subject.

I have tutored for SHSAT advanced math, tutored for elementary and middle school math, and tutor my current students in mathematics in a classroom setting.

Guitar

I have studied the guitar for over 12 years. After studying for 4 years I attended Lehman college, earning top grades and was accepted into the scholars program which required me to maintain a 3.5 gpa in my major concentration of music. I was a tutor for the music department at Lehman college, I tutored for private lessons in guitar to children ages 5-18 as well as adults and the elderly. I received a bachelors of science in music and continued my education become a teacher for the NYCDOE.

I have studied the piano for over 8 years. I attended Lehman college, earning top grades and was accepted into the scholars program which required me to maintain a 3.5 gpa in my major concentration of music.

I received a bachelors of science in music and continued my education become a teacher for the NYCDOE.

Study Skills

I have been an NYCDOE Teacher for over 3 1/2 years. In that time I have taught general education and students with disabilities how to study, organize themselves, and effectively manage their time so that they can be successful students. As a tutor I have echoed these same skills that I practiced as a student. In college I earned a 3.5 undergrad gpa Which is a testament to my good study skills and ability to organize myself and my executive functions

As a middle school and high school students I was able to effectively self study in order to be accepted into the gifted program of the nycdoe and gain acceptance into the special ed high schools via the SHSAT.
