Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I am qualified to tutor in college counseling because I have significant experience in this area. As a Case Manager for the Hetrick-Martin Institute, I met with adolescents both individually and in a group setting to help them devise an educational/vocational plan. This included researching various careers, aptitude testing, creating a strong personal essay, and teaching them how to effectively research various colleges to suit their needs.

Common Core

I am extremely familiar and experienced with tutoring the common core curricula in both ELA and math to elementary school and middle school students. Since September 2010 (for over 4 years now), I have been a WyzAnt tutor with consistently exceptional ratings and reviews. As soon as the common core curricula was fully implemented in the NYC school system in 2011, I familiarized myself with both the math and ELA topics and lessons. Every elementary school student I have tutored since 2011 in ELA and math was common core material, since common core has been required throughout the state. I have used a variety of books and materials for common core practice, including and especially the "Ready New York" series and the Engage NY Common Core website.

Elementary (K-6th)

For four years, I have been employed as a elementary education substitute teacher for the New York City Department of Education. I have taught Math, ELA, Science, Social Studies, and Music for every grade from K through 5th. Additionally, three of my current Wyzant Students and two of my private students are in elementary school.

English

I am an experienced tutor and would be glad to help your 17 year olds.

Regents

I have been tutoring students for Regents exams for several years now. The student I am currently tutoring for English Regents is very happy with her son's progress, and even said that this is the first time he seems to be enjoying studying. I am also quite familiar with the new "Common Core" curriculum for Regents exams. As for materials, I use a combination of the Barron's Regents book and on-line resources, and I give simulated exams 1 - 2 weeks before the actual test and grade them to ensure that my students perform well.

Special Needs

For a year, I was a substitute para-professional with the NYC Dept. of Education, District 75, working with children on the severe end of the autistic spectrum.

For 7 years, I worked as a case manager, outreach worker, and supervisor at the Hetrick-Martin Institute, providing services to runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth

Currently, I am privately tutoring a special needs child in piano.

I am extremely patient and empathetic, and get along great with all kids, especially it seems, those with special needs.

I am glad to provide more detailed information and/or documentation if required. Thank you.

Study Skills

I have been a very active tutor in excellent standing with WyzAnt (see my ratings and reviews) and I always include study skills as part of my tutoring, regardless of subject; skills such as how to focus, time management, recitation, using index cards, using the internet, as well as planning and organization. I not only teach these skills as part of my "subject" tutoring, but in my work with students preparing for exams, such as the SHSAT or ASVAB, I emphasize study skills even more, since usually the amount of study time before the exam is limited.

Oustanding Tutor — Jed was my son's tutor for his Sat prep. He is absolutely knowledgeable, patient, honest and caring. He accommodated my son schedule and changes very easily and most of all he had the ability to make him feel comfortable with the subject. Highly recommended. ...
