I have a Ph.D. in Psychology from CUNY who has both taught and tutored for years. I have worked with all sorts of students, from first graders to adults. My student have ranged from gifted to LD to ADHD to perfectly average. Academically, I have expertise in learning, memory, emotional processes, and behavioral neuroscience, so I am well-trained in understanding the processes that can block learning, and have many techniques for getting the learning process moving. I also have a good sense of humor, and tutoring has always been a pleasant experience for both the student and for me.

Phonics

I have tutored dozens of children in phonics using a program similar to Orton-Gillingham. During a neuropsychology externship at the NYU Child Study Center I administered and interpreted a broad range of language tests, which ranged from phonics to reading comprehension. Finally, I have read extensively in the research on reading, including its underlying cognitive processes and neurobiology.

I have tutored dozens of children in exercises that build attention and executive functioning (using a proprietary program called PACE). I worked in an ADHD research lab at Queens College for 2 years. I have taught mnemonics to many of my undergraduate students as well as to tutoring students. I have taught learning theory at the undergraduate level and am able to apply its tenets in real-life situations.

Writing

I have helped my college students with their application essays many times. I have also taught writing-intensive courses in experimental psychology. I have tutored the mechanics of writing (grammar, spelling, vocabulary, usage, etc.) with about a dozen elementary and middle school children. I wrote a 130 page dissertation, so I am experienced with organizing and completing theses. And I got an 800 on my GRE Verbal.

All reviews helpful patient

Well-versed in topic and good at imparting that knowledge

Bill helped me gain a good grasp of the beginning units of research in psychology. He was very helpful in breaking everything down and making sure I understood everything.

Bill is great

The first tutoring class went great. I am now more familiar with the material being taught at my class. Thank you so much for being patient and for focusing on the material I needed to know.
