About Yiannis

I have taught at the elementary school level for the last twenty years. I currently teach fourth grade and I do test-prep my students for the Math and ELA state exams. I strive to make every lesson accessible to all students by modeling, differentiating and scaffolding instruction. I love what I do and think that when lessons are interesting to the students, students feel motivated to learn. I love seeing the progress students make.

I teach students what they need to know according to the CCSS and beyond. I use a project-based approach tailored to the needs of the student. Lessons can focus on ELA enrichment or just learning how to read and write. Students learn all the skills necessary to write narrative, descriptive, expository or persuasive essays. In addition, students increase their reading stamina are able to read a text and identify fact and opinion, cause and effect, genre, author's purpose, draw conclusions and much more.

I work with children every day. I can evaluate student needs and plan my lessons accordingly. I use Expeditionary Learning, and Go Math as the NYC Common Core sanctioned curriculum. I am familiar with the State Standards and prepare students for the skills and foundations they need to be successful in elementary school as well as be independent and critical thinkers.

You will get an experienced teacher to help you out. I look forward to hearing from you.
