About Augustine

I am an Elementary School Teacher for the past 14 years and have been tutoring for the last five years. I have taught grades 3 through 7 all subjects, but I have a passion for Reading and Math. I am elated when I take a non-reader through the Reading and Writing Process only to see great improvements and results especially on the New York State and Math Exams.
My success is due to my attendance and participation of the Reading and Writing Workshops conducted at Columbia University in New York City during their Summer Institutes, and continuous engagement in the reading of literature that enhances education and student learning. I believe all students can learn if given the right tools and instruction.

I am outstanding as a Reading Tutor because I use the Workshop Method with my students along with knowledge of sight words, spelling, vocabulary, phonics and grammar. Reading daily for an allotted time both fiction and non-fiction and keeping a log of those readings giving incentives as the student progresses. Becoming familiar with the authors of the books read and building their own library is one of many projects I encourage.

As a Common Core Tutor I am familiar with the standards in both ELA and Math, and I am able to train my students to Read and answer questions that appear on the tests using the right formats.

Math challenges most students! But I make my students comfortable, especially when I explain to them that anyone and everyone can do Math. I begin at the very beginning with my students using manipulatives, scenarios, and everyday problems to help them understand and making it fun and meaningful.

Call me to help you get better grades in school especially in Reading, Writing and Math! I am available on evenings after school and also on Sundays.

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.
