Cedar Crest College (History)
University of Pennsylvania (Master's)
Adelphi University (MBA)
I am NYS Mathematics (7-12), Business Education (1-12) and Social Studies (7-12) certified. I have taught these subjects at the middle school, high school and business college levels. I tutor students in a variety of subjects including their preparation for the TACHS, ASVAB and TASC exams. After completing their TESOL Certificate program in 2014, I was an Adjunct Instructor at Westchester Community College.
My teaching takes into consideration the various abilities of students and each one’s need to experience success within the classroom. My strongest suit is having patience and the ability of making students, irrespective of their ability, comfortable with the subject. I am into strategy. Once a student knows how to conquer a problem, he/she will be able to apply the knowledge to such problems in the future.
I also developed and administered a seventh grade tutoring program for the March New York State Mathematics Exam. The results of this exam showed that where a two year history of the students’ math results were available, 25% moved up from being 2's to 3's. Prior to teaching, my career was in Mathematics and Finance.
My educational background includes an MSEd. in secondary education from the University of Pennsylvania (program ranked #5 in the country) and an MBA in Finance from Adelphi University.

She is not just a math expert; she is a true teacher who genuinely wants the child to succeed. She is organized, punctual, and supportive.
Ronnie has tutored my daughter since the start of the second marking period and has made a tremendous positive impact. My daughter no longer struggles to catch up because Ronnie explains the subject matter that was covered in class and makes sure that she understands it.
She helped me with the math ASVAB , she was very helpful and made it easy for me to understand . She also gave me notes . I would recommend her to my friends who are also taking the ASVAB test as well. Ronnie was a pleasure and I am very happy my Mom chose Ronnie because I feel a lot more comfortable and confident. I also appreciate her taking extra time to help me.
Ronnie worked with my 15 year old. He immediately understood due to the way she taught algebra to him. I would highly recommend her.

My son was very happy in his very first lesson. Very easy to talk and her teaching method very easy to understand. She came very prepared and was very professional.
Ronnie helped my teenage daughter with her math. My daughter really enjoyed working with Ronnie and Ronnie explained everything so well they finished the work in one session when I thought it would take several. Very pleased and will hire her again.
We reviewed mean, median, mode, range, order or operations, positive and negative numbers. We will continue to review tomorrow, before moving on to algebra.
Ronnie is very patient, dedicated, organized and given. My daughter feels confident with her and have learned a lot through her in preparation for her SAT test. I will recommend her 100%.
Ronnie is a very thoughtful and analytical tutor. She can pinpoint the areas of weakness and address them promptly. She can discipline and organize children well and make lessons fun. My daughter likes her instructions.
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.
