Brooklyn College (Secondary Education)
I have a Bachelor's in Secondary Education/History, but I am not limited to that subject. When a child needs to learn something, I make sure that it is a learning experience for the both of us. I believe that one can learn anything that life has to offer, all I need to do is find the best learning method that is coupled with a child's learning process, which I always do. I have extensive knowledge of NYC school system and the more parents know, the higher their children will excel.
I have experience teaching History to both primary and secondary students. I enjoy learning about history and I always want to make sure that passion is conveyed through my teaching.
I enjoy learning about both music and art history. The myriad of topics can be so interesting that even my moat disengaged students become curious. I have learned both music and art history in college and they were some of my most rewarding classes. I want my students to appreciate both subject because they make our world colorful.
I would love to hear from you, if you tell me your interests I can definitely work that into the lesson, but that can only happen with your voice.

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.
Common Core Standards are designed to help teachers understand what skills students should master at a certain grade level. As a teacher, I make sure to customize all of my lessons to not only fit Core Standards, but each individual student. For years, I have tailored all of lessons to make sure that students are not only learning, but they are building skills that will be utilized well into college.
When it comes to public speech, there are three elements that must be present in, ethos, pathos and logos. Ethos, represents the credibility of the speaker, pathos is associated with the emotional aspect of the speech and logos is the facts that support the speech. Even great presidents follow these simple rules of rhetoric to appeal to the public. In my classes these are what I look in presentations. There are methods in how to deliver a strong speech and I teach my students these skills that will not only help them in secondary education, but post-secondary education. Being a history teacher, I would not be helping my students if I did not teach them how to debate. I have a Bachelor's in Secondary Education/History, but I am not limited to that subject.
I taught Regents Prep at two NYC high schools, and all of my students exhibited average or above average on their Regents Exams. I helped conduct Saturday classes that were designed to help students who were taking Global and U.S. Regents improve their study skills and memorization skills. In all of my tutorials, I utilized past Regents exams for students to learned we went through it cover-to-cover. I am able to not only teach these exams, but grade them on the spot. I know what the Board of Regents are looking for in a Regents because I have a lot of practice with these exams.
