About Saundra

As a retired New York State Junior/Senior high school teacher, I have over 20 years of experience that includes teaching grades 6-12 Reading, Social Studies, and History. I also taught college level courses, in South Carolina, as well, where I was an instructor/case manager. I conducted student workshops for training in WorkKeys Instruction and testing. I administered the tests and provided reports regarding the results of the WorkKeys testing to local businesses, who were interested in hiring successful participants.

I have always had excellent rapport with students of varying ages. I thoroughly enjoy teaching on all grade levels. Many of my former students are in touch with me today, through social media. It is rewarding to have maintained a reputation of openness and respect from my students.

As a Certified Reading Specialist, I believe I can assist students in preparation for examinations, and test-taking, to further their educational goals.

I have many interests, including travel, researching a wide variety of subjects. I love to cook, and taught Culinary Arts, in South Carolina. I love the outdoors, and my two wonderful dogs. I am a person who loves to learn. Therefore, I have a broad knowledge base, that enables me to offer my students a variety of learning experiences and techniques. I am well aware of the difficulties students experience, in test taking.

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.

American History

I taught American History in Greenville Jr./Sr. High School for 10 years. I have proctored many Regents exams, and prepared students for various Regents exams, as well.

ESL/ESOL

As a Certified Reading Specialist with a Master's degree, I believe that I am qualified to tutor a student in English as a second language. I have studied college level Spanish and Hawaiian. Therefore, I believe that I have sufficient knowledge of the intricacies of learning another language.

Regents

I hold permanent certification to teach grades N-12, in New York State. I am certified in Elementary Education, Social Studies and I have a Master's degree in Reading. Having taught High School level History courses that followed Regents curriculum guidelines, for 25 years, as well as college level courses in South Carolina, I qualify for Regents tutoring. I have tutored students in Regents History courses, while teaching. I have been successful in teaching a wide range of students, including those with learning disabilities, as well as adults who only spoke Spanish. I pride myself for working with individuals with varying learning issues.

SAT Reading

I am a New York State Certified Reading Specialist. I attended SUNY Albany, where I received a Master's Degree in Reading. I believe that I am qualified to tutor SAT Reading.

Social Studies

I am certified to teach Social Studies in New York State. I taught grades 7-12 Social Studies and History for 20 years in Greenville Central School District. I also taught Remedial Reading and Home & Careers in that school district. I developed and implemented a Culinary Arts program curriculum that was established in GCS for the first time EVER!
