About Helen

I am a New York State Certified Elementary Teacher with over twenty years of enrichment and remediation tutoring experience. I spent ten years teaching at a private school in Greenwich, Connecticut with students ranging in age from 3-10 years old.
My strengths include creating a positive learning environment and an individualized education plan unique to each child's learning style. I enjoy working with students and helping them with their academics along with building confidence through positive feedback.

Having a background in Montessori Elementary Education in addition to my Masters in Education enables me to create a program that involves various learning methods and strategies. I provide all necessary materials and will design and create curricular items as needed. I have recently received a certificate for specialized training in the Handwriting Without Tears Program for grades K-5.

As a part time substitute teacher in the Rivertowns, I am exposed to all elementary subjects and grades of the New York State Common Core curriculum. I also work part time teaching pre-k .
In my spare time, I enjoy teaching art history workshops to both children and adults at local libraries.
My references are excellent.

Please feel free to contact me by e-mail if you are interested or have any questions.

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.

I have spent the past two years tutoring Common Core Subjects such as Second- and Fourth-Grade Math as well as First- and Second-Grade Language Arts.

Knowledgeable and Thorough

Helen is thorough and knows how to engage her student for an hour, which is challenging when the student is 8 years old and it's near bed time! My son is getting a lot out of it.
