I am a teacher with 21 years' experience teaching 4th grade through 8th grade students in all subjects but my concentration has been Math. Currently, I am a Math Specialist in my district where I work with my AIS students as well as my Math Team students. Working with all students requires me to show my passion of the subject area to help motivate my students.
Creativity is key so that the students are actively engaged and do not feel like they are being taught yet taking part in daily life skills. While tutoring I am able to help my students reach further and find ways to make the impossible seem very possible.
In addition to teaching I have enjoyed coaching cheerleading for 15 years and being a mother to the great children of my own.
While my BS and MS degrees are in Elementary Education, I have minors in Math and Psychology. Out of my 21 years of teaching I have 13 of these years exclusively teaching Math. I have taught 11 years to 6th grade, 7 years to 7th and 8th grade and 3 to 4th and 5th grade. These years have included students with disabilities, IEPS, as well as enrichment.
I have worked closely with all Common Core standards as well as all ELA and Math modules. In addition, I have been on the committees that have graded the NYS tests.
Permanently Certified N-6 since 1998

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 caught CCSS for the past years and work on not only teaching them but developing assessments and projects aligned to match up with these standards. I work closely with the designed modules but additionally implement many of my own tools .
In addition, I am on the committee that grades the NYS Math tests.
