I am a retired New York State secondary school teacher. I taught in a large school district in Central New York and my absolute favorite subject was Global History and Geography 9-10. I also taught middle school American history and government. I was a Fulbright Teacher in Europe, teaching English as a Second Language and European history in Hungary.
I have taught students of all levels and abilities and I really love getting content and skills across through multiple approaches. I have developed successful strategies for writing research papers, document based essays and thematic essays.
I have recently visited India twice and completed my CELTA in Budapest. This is an amazing intense program for training teachers to teach ESL students.
I also enjoy creative writing and blogging, editing papers and working with dog rescue.
I want YOU to be completely satisfied with my tutoring, and while I have high expectations, I am patient and willing to do whatever is needed to make YOU, the student, a success.
I can meet with you anywhere from Ithaca to Cortland.
I love helping to improve English as well as attain success in other subjects like social studies.

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.
