About Lorraine

I have two teaching certifications from New York State Education Department, one certification is to teach students with special needs of all ages and another certification to teach Elementary School grades PreK to 6. I have been a home tutor on and off for 25 years. I have tutored students from elementary school age up to adult doctoral students.
I have a PhD in Education.

I find that my success lies in the ability to find the gaps in a student's learning and teach in a fashion that suits the individual. I will try anything to facilitate a student to learn. I have taught all elementary subjects and High School PreAlgebra, Algebra, English, History, Global Studies, Earth Science and Spanish.

I am a compassionate, nurturing teacher that believes in student inquiry and experiential learning. I never tell a student the answer to a problem, I lead a student to discover the answer on their own. This empowers a student and creates a learner that has the confidence to solve problems in daily life.

I will work on daily living skills, behavioral issues and organization skills if I find it necessary to enhance the learning process of a student.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught Elementary school students for more than 20 years.

Special Needs

I have New York State Education Department certification to teach students with special needs from Preschool to 12th grade.

Study Skills

I have taught elementary, high school and college students how to organize through the use of color coding, folders, binders, and computer files and folders. I have taught study skills classes. I help students to discover how they think and enable them to explore what organizational tools work for each individual. I have been doing this for over twenty years. I have two teaching certifications from New York State Education Department.
