Bio

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.

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.

Whether you are looking for enrichment or remedial assistance for your child, I am the right tutor for you!

I am NYS certified in multiple subjects covered on the TASC (GED) exam. In addition, I have extensive experience preparing students for the exam as a prvate tutor, outreach center teacher in the Bronx and as a volunteer. My strategy is reviewing a series of previous exams to find their similarities. Any 'brushing up' required is also addressed. Since my TASC (GED) students tend to be adults who are committed to succeeding quickly, I offer them a reduced rate (not posted here) for a two hour minimum. The goal is to take the exam while most of the preparation is still in your short term memory. My hourly fee for TASC students is $50 with a two hour minimum.

Excellent Tutor!

Ronnie is a patient, caring and conscientious tutor, who has tutored my daughter in pre-algebra for the past 3 months. During that time, not only have my daughter's math grades improved, but also her math self-esteem. She is now confident that she can do math and says she loves math, all thanks to Ronnie. We are so grateful!

Odile, 35 lessons with Ronnie

A knowledgeable tutor who really cares

Ronnie tutors my 6th grader in Math. Before we met her my son was not a very confident student in math. He is my arty child. But once he started seeing her on a weekly basis, not only did his confidence build but his grades went up as well! She is a very patient and understanding tutor. I feel she is doing what she loves most and is truly able to connect with my son. Ronnie also very reliable and flexible when I need to change our meeting time. I am very happy that Jordan has her as a tutor and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone to strengthen their childs math skills!

Virla, 25 lessons with Ronnie

Ronnie was wonderful, and my son said she was very helpful and enjoyed working with her. This was only the first session but I'm sure we will be working with her again.

Vanessa, 3 lessons with Ronnie

Ronnie is an excellent tutor. She considers the specific needs of the child and creates a lesson to build on the child's strengths and to eliminate their weaknesses.
