About Symiara

I have tutored for 6 years in multiple subjects for elementary and middle school students. I have also helped high school students prepare for the Regents and SAT Prep as well. I am a certified 8th grade English Teacher. My primary focus are scholars who are behind grade level, as well as students who need some extra help to push them to grow further.

I love tutoring/ teaching because every child can learn from me as I can learn from them. When it comes to education, no child is dumb, stupid or anything derogatory. Every child has the ability to learn and grasp anything they want. It is determined by each student and working to how they learn best.

I have my bachelors in Journalism and currently I am in pursuit of my Masters Degree in School Psychology. I have been a certified teacher for the past 4 years and I have been tutoring for the past 6 years.

I am flexible to meet on the weekdays after 6 p.m. and anytime on the weekends.

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.

Common Core

I am very familiar with the Common Core curriculum. These past four academic years I had taught second grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, sixth grade and seventh grade students with whom I met with daily in order to prepare for the Common Core State Exam. I teach my students testing strategies such as labeling reading comprehension questions before reading the passage, in addition to introducing them to new concepts that they may not learn in school. For example, basic Algebra concepts were on the fourth grade Common Core Exam this year which was not covered in school for any of my students.

Elementary Math

I worked in an elementary school for two years as an 2nd grade teacher as well as a 4th grade teacher. I pulled out small group of students who were struggling and provided strategies to make better decisions on test.

English

I graduated with a degree in Journalism. I currently am an English teacher as well.

Proofreading

I went to school Journalism and wrote on my school newspaper. I have extensive work in proofreading.

Regents

I am an experienced English Regents tutor. I have experience as a teacher and as a tutor preparing students for the Regents examinations in American History and Government and in Global History as well. As a tutor I have taken students who have failed the Regents before and have helped them pass.
