About Adam

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree major in Music from St. Lawrence University and minor in Government and Sports Studies. I do not have a Teaching Certification. However I do have several years experience as a volunteer tutor and mentor of middle school students at the Canton and Potsdam School district. I was able to help two 7th grade boys with Reading, Math, Science, History, Computer Skills, Organizational Skills, help with their learning disabilities and raise their self esteem and helped with their interaction with peers, friends etc.

I have learning disabilities myself as I have dyslexia and I went to a Boarding School for dyslexic boys for four years called The Gow School, so I do know firsthand how to achieve your potential with a disability. I am able to teach phonics and study skills, help prepare students to be better overall students. I also help students feel joy and the want to learn through enthusiasm. I feel everyone has their potential inside and I will be able to help achieve your goals.
