About Simeon

I have been teaching for eight years in the New York City public schools. In this time, I have been successful in teaching middle and high schools to become proficient in English. Additionally, I have tutored students in reading and TOEFL with an excellent success rate (100%). I hope to be able to use my hands on and innovative techniques to help you as well.

My teaching experience has including push-in, where I work collaboratively with one or two other teachers in order to bring needs of all students into the classroom, both in English and History, as well as a pull-out model, where I have a small group of students with whom I work to enhance their knowledge and focus in particular on one or two skills necessary to become proficient.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Ballroom Dancing

I was a semi-professional dancer for nearly five years. During that time, the group I was with performed Tango, Foxtrot, Two Step, and Waltz, among other forms of ballroom dance.

Bar Exam

I excelled in the LSAT. Now I have completed law school. Currently, I am preparing for the Bar. As I prepare, I am teaching myself. I have also taken bar review courses, which is preparing me and giving me teaching methodologies which are fresh in my mind.

Cooking

I enjoy cooking. For two years, I was the primary cook for my family, until I moved out on my own, at which point I would cook for myself. I frequently hosted dinner parties, and was even recommended to be a personal chef in the Hamptons for a summer.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary students in the summer for seven years. My training was at the elementary level. I have two master's degrees that are for k-12 licensure in NY.

Regents

I teach High School and am certified in the state of New York. In addition, I tutor after school three days a week, devoted to preparing students for the regents exam. Last year, I tutored a student who passed three regents exams on consecutive days (English, Global, and U.S. history) in order to graduate on time.

Russian

I majored in Russian for my undergraduate studies. Part of my program was to study in Russia. I stayed in St. Petersburg for six months with a Russian familiy.

Salsa Dancing

I was a semi-professional dancer. Our dance troupe would travel and perform throughout New York State. Through this, I learned various forms of dance.

Special Needs

I have Special Education master's from Grand Canyon University. This degree was completed in 2007. Since then, I have taught students with special needs in the NYC public schools.

Study Skills

I teach English to high school students. A large part of the job is teaching the students how to study. My success leads me to the conclusion that I can tutor in this area.

Volleyball

I am a self taught player. After playing for my high school team, I went on to become captain of a league team.
