About Courtney

I am a New York State certified social studies teacher who is currently working on additional certifications in literacy and special education. I am available to tutor students in 6th-12th in any subject area. Tutoring sessions during the school year supplement what has been learned in school. Tutoring sessions focus on homework help, organization, study skills, and writing strategies for the content. I am available for summer tutoring, which focuses on the student's individual weaknesses and prepare the student for the next school year.

I enjoy tutoring and creating an individual plan for success for each of my students. I have had continued success with students who are weak with reading and writing, suffer from learning disabilities, and get lost in the class materials. I have seen success at the high school level in economics, global, and American history, earth science, and, English. I have prepared students for transitions from elementary school to middle school and middle school to high school. I create individualized tutoring plans that work with the 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.
